Recovery strategy for Lake Utopia Rainbow Smelt (Osmerus mordax), small-bodied population (sympatric with the large-bodied population), in Canada: En3-4/244-2016E-PDF

The native Rainbow Smelt (Osmerus mordax), inhabiting Lake Utopia, consists of two co-existing morphologically, ecologically, and genetically differentiated (sympatric) populations: a small-bodied form and a large-bodied form (Bradbury et al. 2011). Together the two populations are referred to as the Lake Utopia Rainbow Smelt sympatric species pair, or simply Lake Utopia Rainbow Smelt (LURS). They occur only in this single, small lake in the Magaguadavic watershed in southwestern New Brunswick.
