Report on the Progress of Recovery Strategy Implementation

Report on the Progress of Recovery Strategy Implementation for the Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis) St. Lawrence River Population in Canada for the period 2011 to 2016

When it was first assessed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) in 2004, the Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis) population in the St. Lawrence Estuary was designated as Extirpated. In 2011 it was listed as Extirpated in Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). The Recovery Strategy for the Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis), St. Lawrence Estuary population was published in the Species at Risk Public Registry in 2011. In 2012, COSEWIC reassessed the Striped Bass population, which has been reintroduced in the St. Lawrence River. This population, renamed the St. Lawrence River population, was designated as Endangered; the new name will be used throughout the report. This Report details the progress towards the recovery of the St. Lawrence River Striped Bass population.
