In April 2010, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) assessed Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Westslope populations) as Special Concern. This species is being considered for listing as Special Concern under SARA and underwent regional consultations to gather public feedback.

Regional consultations were held online from November 8th - December 17th, 2010. Online comment forms (workbooks) and species information was made available for the public to submit comments. Letters were emailed out to Environmental Non-Governmental Organizations (ENGO’s) and industry groups near the species’ range. Letters were also mailed, emailed and faxed out to First Nations groups near the species’ range. A total of three comments were received; two comments in favour of listing the Rocky Mountain Sculpin as Special Concern and one comment against listing the species.
