Abstract

The Logperch (Percina caprodes), a species of restricted distribution in eastern Canada, is reported from tributaries of Atikonak Lake, a component of the Churchill River system, Labrador. In eastern Canada, this species has previously been recorded only from Québec river systems. Logperch collections in Labrador support the probability of a postglacial dispersal of freshwater fishes across Québec north of the Otish Mountains to the headwaters of the Churchill River system.
