Action plan for the Cultus pygmy sculpin (Cottus aleuticus, Cultus population) in Canada: CW69-21/26-2016E-PDF

"Cultus Pygmy Sculpin (Cottus aleuticus, Cultus Population) is a small Canadian endemic freshwater fish found only in Cultus Lake and is listed as Threatened on Schedule 1 of SARA. Cultus Lake is located in the lower mainland region of southwestern British Columbia which is an area undergoing sustained and rapid urbanization. Cultus Lake is heavily used by recreationists and drains into the lower Fraser River area where many invasive species are well established. The species is vulnerable to habitat quality decline and invasive species establishing in the lake. This action plan identifies recovery measures to be taken by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, in cooperation and consultation with other agencies, organizations and individuals as appropriate to support the recovery of Cultus Pygmy Sculpin. As all Canadians are invited to join in supporting and implementing this action plan for the benefit of the Cultus Pygmy Sculpin and Canadian society as a whole, the action plan also identifies measures that would contribute to the recovery of Cultus Pygmy Sculpin that could be voluntarily undertaken by other jurisdictions, groups and individuals interested in participating in the recovery of these species"--Executive summary, p. iii.
