For the Green River Basin Landscape Conservation Design (GRB LCD) assessment, we mapped the vulnerability of the critical habitat for threatened and endangered fish species to oil and gas development for each 12-digit hydrologic unit. The following threatened and endangered fish species were included in this vulnerability assessment: Colorado pikeminnow (Ptychocheilus lucius), Bonytail Chub (Gila elegans), Humpback chub (Gila cypha), and razorback sucker (Xyrauchen texanus). Using a vulnerability framework, we defined Sensitivity (S) as the average combined area of critical fish habitat within HUC12 polygons. Exposure (E) to oil and gas development was quantified the log transformed upstream flow accumulation of...

We evaluated the role of major tributary streams for endangered fish recovery using a matrix approach based on quantitative information. However, the need for ranking tributaries for direct and indirect contributions (i.e., assignment of high, medium or low importance) required a more subjective approach. Some streams differed in actual and potential importance because barriers deny fish access to suitable habitat. We have not assigned relative importance to the different types of contributions; to a large extent that may involve policy issues better addressed by the Recovery Program.
Humpback chub (Gila cypha) are listed under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. In accordance with recovery goals finalized in 2002, a population estimate was completed for adult humpback chub in Westwater Canyon on the Colorado River. This population estimate was conducted from 1998 to 2000 with the objectives of obtaining population estimates for humpback chub and roundtail chub in Westwater Canyon. Sampling occurred during September and October throughout the three years of the study. Three passes were conducted annually with approximately one week between passes. The primary method of capture was via trammel netting with supplemental electrofishing on one pass per year. Population estimates were...

These data were compiled for a study evaluating if rare or endangered fishes (e.g., Humpback Chub and Bonytail) can be transported in a shipping bag with 1-L of water and minimal sedative into remote locations. There were two components (laboratory trials and a field trial) of the study conducted in 2014 and 2017. Laboratory trials were conducted at the Rocky Mountain Research Station in Flagstaff, Arizona to evaluate three sedatives: AquaCalm, Tricaine-S, or Aqui-S 20E. Pilot trials were conducted with five fish (Bonytail) placed in a bag, where induction/recovery times, level of sedation, and fate after release were monitored for fish exposed to a sedative. Fish density increased to 20 fish (Bonytail and Humpback...

Examination of gastrointestinal tracts of native cyprinids from the Little Colorado River (LCR) in Grand Canyon, Arizona, 1990-1994, revealed varying rates of prevalence and infrapopulation levels of Asian tapeworm (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi). Mean prevalence was 28% (range 0-78%) in humpback chub (Gila cypha) and 8% (range 0-46%) in speckled dace (Rhinichthys osculus), with infrapopulations as high as 46 and 28, respectively. We also note Asian tapeworm infection of nonnatives common carp (Cyprinus carpio), fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas), and plains killifish (Fundulus zebrinus) from the LCR. Reported pathogenic and chronic effects of this cestode to its definitive hosts add concern for the status of...
