Experimental Populations (broodstock) and Genetic Implications of translocation for Small Fishes at Risk

To improve processes regarding scientific population assessment and recovery strategies for small fish species identified as at-risk under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA), Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) provided $ 135,725 over three years to this project via the Partnership Fund. The project by the University of Windsor Freshwater Restoration Ecology Centre, which is part of the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, focuses on maintaining the biodiversity of the Great Lakes. The project addresses research gaps identified in recovery potential assessments and species recovery strategies and will inform captive rearing programs and techniques, should they be pursued for SARA-listed freshwater fishes and mussels. If adapted in Canada, reintroductions could make meaningful progress towards de-listing SARA species.
