Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Cottus sp.), Eastslope populations in Canada

In August 2006, the Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Cottus sp.), Eastslope populations, in the St. Mary and Milk river watersheds of Alberta were officially listed as “Threatened” under Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Under SARA a recovery strategy is required within two years of listing for threatened species. In December 2007, the species was similarly listed under Alberta’s Wildlife Act, which also requires the completion of a recovery plan within two years.

Consultation period: 2012-06-19 to 2012-08-18
