Nearshore Strategy - Watch List Species

Watch list species were determined by the Nearshore Team to be important nearshore species that do not require immediate management action, but may in the future.

Managers should be aware of conservation needs and potential factors that could affect these species and consider them for future strategy species status if necessary.

Examples of factors that may warrant status change include new information, a change in harvest status, or the occurrence of an anthropogenic or natural event (e.g., water pollution, climatic event).
