Action Plans

Summary of the action plan for the Westslope Cutthroat Trout (Alberta populations)

The Species at Risk Act (SARA) requires the development of one or more action plans based on the recovery strategy for those species listed as endangered or threatened on the List of Wildlife Species at Risk (Schedule 1). The Westslope Cutthroat Trout (Alberta populations) is among those species listed as Threatened under the SARA. In March 2014, Fisheries and Oceans Canada posted the Recovery Strategy for the Westslope Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi), Alberta Populations in Canada, which sets out the goals, objectives and approaches for recovering the species, and the timelines for completion of the action plan. In accordance with the recovery strategy, an action plan for Westslope Cutthroat Trout was due for posting on the Species at Risk Public Registry by March 31, 2015, for a 60-day public comment period.
