Description

This wildlife status report looks at the shortjaw cisco, a freshwater fish with trout-like bodies with with larger scales than trout or salmon and no teeth on the bones of the jaw. It is listed as threatened in Canada and may be at risk in Alberta. The only verified report of shortjaw cisco in Alberta is from Barrow Lake in the Canadian Shield region of the province. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
