Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for Pugnose Minnow (Opsopoeodus emiliae) in Canada

Pugnose Minnow was listed as a species of special concern under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) in 2003. In 2012, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) re-assessed the species as threatened. Pugnose Minnow was reclassified as threatened on Schedule 1 SARA in 2019. This recovery strategy and action plan is considered one in a series of documents for this species that are linked and should be taken into consideration together, including the COSEWIC status report (COSEWIC 2012) and the recovery potential assessment (DFO 2012). Recovery has been determined to be biologically and technically feasible.

Consultation period: 2021-01-20 to 2021-03-21
