Proceedings of the Regional Science Advisory Process on the Recovery Potential Assessment of Lake Chubsucker (Erimyzon sucetta); 9 March 2011

Chairpersons: L. Bouvier and N. Mandrak


A regional science pelang="la"er-review meeting was held on 9 March 2011 in Burlington, Ontario. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the recovery potential of Lake Chubsucker (Erimyzon sucetta) based on the 17 steps outlined in the Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Recovery Potential Assessment (RPA) framework. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) has designated Lake Chubsucker as Endangered (November 2008). It is currently listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) as Endangered. The resulting RPA Science Advisory Report will provide the information and scientific advice required for the Department to meet various requirements of SARA for this species including listing decisions, authorizations to carry out activities that would otherwise violate the SARA and development of recovery strategies. Meeting participants included experts from DFO, Long Point Conservation Authority, Point Pelee National Park, and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

This Proceedings report summarizes the relevant discussions and presents revisions to be made to the associated research documents. The Science Advisory Report and the supporting Research Documents, resulting from this advisory meetings, are published on the DFO Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat Website.
