Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Aurora Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis timagamiensis) in Canada

First discovered in 1923 by an angling party, aurora trout (Salvelinus fontinalis timagamiensis) were initially described in the literature as a new species (Salvelinus timagamiensis). Today aurora trout are generally believed to be a form of brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) that are endemic to only two lakes - Whirligig Lake and Whitepine Lake. The aurora trout was listed as endangered under SARA in June 2003.
