Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Western Silvery Minnow (Hybognathus argyritis) in Canada

In June 2003 when the Species at Risk Act (SARA) came into force, the Western Silvery Minnow (Hybognathus argyritis) was officially listed on Schedule 1 of the SARA as “Threatened”, requiring the completion of a recovery strategy within four years. Similarly, the Province of Alberta has listed the Western Silvery Minnow as “Threatened” under Alberta’s Wildlife Act and has completed a recovery plan for the species.

Consultation period: 2016-09-09 to 2016-11-08
