Recovery potential assessment of Redside Dace (Clinostomus elongatus) in Canada. : Fs70-6/2019-012E-PDF

“In April 1987, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) designated Redside Dace (Clinostomus elongatus) as Special Concern, and this status was re-assessed as Endangered in April 2007. A re-assessment by COSEWIC in November 2017 kept the species designation as Endangered. The reason given for this designation was “this small, colourful minnow is highly susceptible to changes in stream flow and declines in water quality, such as those that occur in urban and agricultural watersheds. The Canadian range of this species largely overlaps with the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), where urban land use is widespread and projected to increase in the future. The continued expansion of the GTA has led to ongoing habitat degradation, causing serious declines in range and number of individuals and populations” (COSEWIC 2017). In May 2017, Redside Dace was listed as Endangered under the Species at Risk Act (SARA"--Context, page [1].
