Occurrence of Lake Chub, Couesius plumbeus, in Northern Labrador
Keywords:Lake Chub, Couesius plumbeus, species distribution, post-glacial dispersal, Labrador
AbstractLake Chub (Couesius plumbeus) were recently found in seven previously undocumented locations in northern Labrador. These populations represent the first recorded accounts of this species in the Labrador region north of the Churchill River drainage and east of the George River. Lake Chub likely invaded this region via dispersal routes provided by eastern spillways of glacial Lake Naskaupi.
