Do you want to know whether a particular North American freshwater fish
species is a federally or state-protected species, or listed by a state or
province as a species of special conservation or management concern?

Now you can get the answer with a few clicks of a mouse.

Introducing "Endangered, Threatened and Other Special Status Fishes of North
America," the latest addition to NANFA's growing library of online reference

"Endangered, Threatened and Other Special Status Fishes of North America" is
an Excel spreadsheet that lists all North American freshwater fish species
(excluding Hawaii) that are 1) protected or listed by federal, state or
provincial governments as Endangered or Threatened species; 2) proposed or a
candidate for Endangered or Threatened species protection; and 3) listed in
one of various classifications that do not necessarily protect the species
but formally recognize its increasing rarity and/or vulnerability to
imperilment (e.g., Special Concern).
