December 15, 2016 /

"A regional science peer-review meeting was held on December 15, 2016 in Burlington, Ontario. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the recovery potential of Black Redhorse Assessment (Moxostoma duquesnei), to provide advice that may be used for the listing decision, development of a recovery strategy and action plan, and to support decision making with regards to the issuance of permits or agreements. Participants included DFO Science and Species at Risk programs and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF). The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) designated the Black Redhorse as Threatened in 2015. The Black Redhorse is found only in a few rivers in southwestern Ontario, and is under continuing threats to habitat quality due to the cumulative impacts of pollution from urban wastewater and agriculture, and alterations to flow regimes. This proceedings report summarizes the relevant discussions from the meeting and presents recommended revisions to be made to the associated research document. The Proceedings, Science Advisory Report and Research Document resulting from this science advisory meeting are published on the DFO Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) website”--Summary, p. iv.
