Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of the Speckled Dace (Rhinichthys osculus) Order: SOR/2018-218

The Speckled Dace (Rhinichthys osculus) is a small freshwater fish that is widely distributed in rivers throughout western North America. In Canada, Speckled Dace occurs only in a short section of the Columbia River drainage in the Kootenay Boundary regional district of British Columbia. While this species is moderately abundant, its distribution in Canada is very restricted, suggesting that the Speckled Dace will continually be at some risk.
