“The Olympia Oyster (Ostrea lurida) was listed as a species of Special Concern under the Species at Risk Act in 2003. The Management Plan for the Olympia Oyster (Ostrea conchaphila1) was finalized and published on the Species at Risk Public Registry in 2009. The main threats identified for the Olympia Oyster include: human alteration of habitat, inadvertent introduction of non-native predators and parasites, vulnerability to human pollution (pulp mill effluents and possibly anti-fouling paints), and historic over harvesting. This report documents the progress of Management Plan implementation for the Olympia Oyster in Canada for the period 2009-2015. It summarizes progress that Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the broader scientific community have made towards achieving the goal and objective set out in the Management Plan"--Executive summary, p. ii.
