Roundtail chub (Gila robusta) status data created for the Western Division of the American Fisheries Society (WDAFS)

First paragraph of introduction: On 20 July 2004 a single Asian tapeworm (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi) was collected from the intestine of a roundtail chub (Gila robusta) in the Yampa River in Dinosaur National Monument in northwestern Colorado. This fish (274 mm TL) was collected at river mile 24 and dissected in the field. A single tapeworm was removed from the intestine and preserved in ethanol. The tapeworm was later identified in the laboratory as B. acheilognathi by its characteristic arrow-shaped scolex (Poole et al. 1984). This is the 1st recorded incidence of Asian tapeworm infecting fish in the Yampa River drainage. Published in Western North American Naturalist, volume 65, issue 3, on pages 403 - 404,...

These data were used to examine the effectiveness of a non-lethal tool (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, "BIA") to estimate the physiological condition of endangered and threatened fishes in the Colorado River Basin. We conducted laboratory trials using hatchery-raised Humpback Chub and Bonytail and wild-captured Roundtail Chub, where fish were subjected to different feeding trials to elucidate a response in physiological condition and different temperature treatments to approximate field conditions. At the end of each 6-week trial fish were removed from tanks, lateral and dorsal measurements of BIA were taken, and fish were sacrificed for proximate composition analysis (lipid, protein, water, ash, dry mass, energy...

Survey data was integrated within a GIS by georeferencing observations to an existing national spatial framework (National Hydrography Dataset), which allows for broader transferability to watersheds shared with neighboring states, creating a seamless layer not limited by state boundaries. Addressing the management and conservation challenges for native fishes will require the ability to “data mine” the extensive existing information on distribution and abundance of species available from aquatic survey programs. Results from such syntheses can be used to assess the current conservation status of native fishes, quantify the extent of species invasions, and establish baseline distributions with which to evaluate...

This map contains:Aquatic Intactness results for the State of Utah and the Colorado Plateau Ecoregion, HUC6/12-Digit HUC resolution.Aquatic Species Intactness results clipped to 22 different species' distributions, showing the AI status/condition for each of these species of interest in Utah and the COP. An experimental Aquatic Intactness model for the Escalante subregion, which tests a methodology to incorporate detailed/specialized datasets available for only a portion of the study site into the model without penalizing no-data areas in the final intactness score. The Escalante experimental model utilizes two additional themes: riparian vegetation conversion and grazing impact. Unfortunately Grand Staircase National...
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...

To map the distribution of bluehead sucker, flannelmouth sucker, and roundtail chub (three-species assemblage), we compiled occurrence information from Wyoming Game and Fish Department (streams, rivers, and lakes and reservoirs), Utah Natural Heritage Program (point locations), and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (6th-level watersheds). Due to the variety in the data types available, we summarized occurrence information by 6th-level watersheds, streams and lakes. The resulting distribution map was used to quantify baseline conditions for each species and the three-species assemblage overall. Point locations with rivers in Utah and occupied watersheds in Colorado, were assumed to represent occurrence along the full reach...

These data were compiled to evaluate the potential impact various environmental conditions may have on native fish populaitons through predation. Introduced warm-water sport fishes present a high predation risk for juvenile native fishes, but observations of juvenile native fish surviving and recruiting in some rare cases led us to question what environmental conditions might be responsible for these trends. These data were compiled to allow for a relative comparison of predation effectiveness between a suite of warm-water predators under a variety of environmental conditions. Mean numbers of prey fish surviving in replicated overnight laboratory predation trials were quantified.

We evaluated distribution, habitat use, spawning, and species associations of the endangered humpback chub (Gila cypha) in the Yampa and Green rivers, Dinosaur National Monument, from 1986 to 1989. Adult and juvenile humpback chub were captured in high-gradient reaches of Yampa and Whirlpool canyons where they were rare (n = 133, G. robusta) were widely distributed in eddies, pools, runs, and riffles. Humpback chub (n = 39) and roundtail chub (n = 242) in reproductive condition were sympatric in eddy habitats during the 5-6 week period following highest spring runoff. River temperatures at this time averaged about 20 C. Nonnative channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) were abundant in eddies yielding humpback and...
