Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for the Silver Shiner (Notropis photogenis) in Canada

Silver Shiner was listed as threatened under the Species at Risk Act (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 Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) status report (2011), a recovery potential assessment (DFO 2013), and possibly further action plans. Recovery has been determined to be biologically and technically feasible.

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