Abstract: Freshwater fish, other freshwater aquatic species, and freshwater ecosystems are not getting equal representation in conservation efforts in British Columbia compared to terrestrial species and ecosystems. They are much more often listed as at risk and Forest Dependent (FD) than any other taxonomic group and biogeographic or habitat type. This risk discrepancy is not addressed by protection under the British Columbia Forest Practices Code (FPC) or the British Columbia Protected Areas Strategy (PAS). Fish compose the highest proportion (one-third) of Red-listed (threatened or endangered) taxa, and 25% of these do not have proper taxonomic nomenclature. Sixty-seven percent of Red-listed fish have a global distribution of a single British Columbia water body, and a further 24% of Blue-listed (vulnerable or sensitive) and Red-listed fish are peripheral isolates. No commercial salmonid or other stocks are listed...
