Endangered Species Status for the Canoe Creek Clubshell and Designation of Critical Habitat (Final)
Jul. 6, 2022
USFWS determined that the Canoe Creek clubshell (Pleurobema athearni), a freshwater mussel species endemic to a single watershed in north-central Alabama, is an endangered species under the ESA. They also designate critical habitat for the species under the Act. In total, approximately 58.5 river kilometers (36.3 river miles) in St. Clair and Etowah Counties, Alabama, fall within the boundaries of the critical habitat designation. This rule extends the Act's protections to the species and its designated critical habitat. This rule is effective 5 August 2022. POC is William J.
