Management Plan for the Brook Floater (Alasmidonta varicosa) in Canada

The Brook Floater (Alasmidonta varicosa) is a freshwater mussel listed as Special Concern under the Species and Risk Act (SARA) in 2013. This listing triggers the development of a management plan which identifies the measures needed to conserve the species in order to prevent further declines, range loss or worsened status due to human activities. The general prohibitions of SARA do not apply to species of Special Concern, and there is no requirement to identify or protect critical habitat.

Consultation period: 2016-10-25 to 2016-12-24
