Alberta westslope cutthroat trout recovery plan 2012-2017

Description

Westslope cutthroat trout, the only subspecies of cutthroat trout native to Alberta, historically inhabited most streams in south-western Alberta from the alpine to the prairies. Today they occupy only a small fraction of their historic range and are largely restricted to the Rocky Mountains and foothills. The species is listed as Threatened in Alberta. The goal of this recovery plan is to protect and maintain the existing pure Westslope cutthroat trout population at self-sustaining levels, and re-establish additional pure populations to self-sustaining levels within the species' historical range in Alberta. The plan provides background information on the Westslope cutthroat trout, describes the threats facing the species, outlines proposed strategies to address these threats, and presents an action plan that lists priority actions required to maintain and restore the species.
