Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of Carmine Shiner (Notropis percobromus) Order

The Carmine Shiner (Notropis percobromus) is found in the Whitemouth, Birch and Winnipeg river watersheds in Manitoba. While there is no evidence that Carmine Shiner populations have declined over time, because of its limited distribution and abundance, the species may be sensitive to future anthropogenic disturbances. In November 2001, and in April 2006, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) assessed the status of the Carmine Shiner and classified the species as a threatened species. Following an updated status report and reassessment by COSEWIC in April 2018, the status of the Carmine Shiner changed from threatened to endangered.
