Report on the progress of recovery strategy implementation for the lake chubsucker (Erimyzon sucetta) in Canada for the period 2010–2015: En3-4/40-1-2017E-PDF

“The Lake Chubsucker was initially listed as Threatened in 2003 under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) and was reclassified to Endangered in 2011. The Recovery Strategy for the Lake Chubsucker (Erimyzon sucetta) in Canada was finalized and published on the Species at Risk Public Registry in 2010, before the species was uplisted in 2011. The main threats identified for the Lake Chubsucker include: wetland habitat loss; siltation and turbidity; and, nutrient loading. Additional contributing threats include: channelization/altered water flow; invasive species; incidental harvest; changes to trophic dynamics; barriers to movement; and, climate change. The population and distribution objectives for the Lake Chubsucker are to maintain current distributions and densities of known extant populations in the Old Ausable Channel (OAC), L Lake, Lake St. Clair (Walpole Island, St. Clair National Wildlife Area [NWA]), Lake Erie (Point Pelee National Park, Rondeau Bay, Long Point Bay, Big Creek NWA), and the upper Niagara River (Lyons Creek)”--Executive summary, p. ii.
