Proceedings of the Regional Science Advisory Process on the Assessment of Methods for the Identification of Critical Habitat for Freshwater Mussels; 28 April 2011

Co-chairs: Lynn Bouvier and Todd Morris


A regional science peer-review meeting was held on 28 April 2011 in Burlington, Ontario. The purpose of the meeting was to peer review approaches, and the information required, for the identification of critical habitat for freshwater mussels. This review included the assessment of methods that may be used to identify critical habitat for freshwater mussels and the review of the conceptual framework for identifying critical habitat for freshwater mussel species at risk throughout their range that be may adapted for broader usage. The resulting Science Advisory Report includes recommendations and guidance on techniques to be used in the delineation of critical habitat. Meeting participants included experts from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Portt and Associates, and Central Michigan University.

This Proceedings report summarizes the relevant discussions of the science advisory meeting. The Proceedings and the Science Advisory Report, resulting from this advisory meeting, are published on the DFO Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat Website.
