This endangered species is a fish mainly located in the Atlantic Ocean. Average length of the anadromous form is about 38 centimeters (15 inches) with an elongated body. The landlocked populations are generally 20 - 25 centimeters (8-10 inches). It was assessed that they were an endangered species in the year nineteen ninety six. This is why it is also called the Atlantic Whitefish (Coregonus huntsmani.) This fish is a freshwater salmonid fish near the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. There habitat is mainly freshwater and marine ecosystem. Also some freshwater lakes inside the province. The one and main threat of the fish are the people, being subjected to overfishing, considered to be an excellent game fish, they can also be mistaken for a food fish that is also located in that area. All of these factors added together have led to the ultimate demise of these fish, it has left them no room for expansion because they were brought down so quickly. The species has caused a rapid profit with a high population rate and now that they are rarer people can not make as much money off of them. Which in doing this they have caused these species to have a small gene pool so that they do not have a lot of room for adaptation or changes. Which will cause little development and add to the fact that they are already a venerable species. They could try to increase the population by not fishing it and restricting the amount or age your aloud to fish. The hard part in doing this is that you cannot control everyone and it would be hard to enforce this.
