Utah Project

Tributary habitat use of endangered and imperiled fishes in the Price River, Utah.

August 2011 - September 2014


Participating Agencies

  • Bureau of Reclamation

The overall goal of this research and monitoring project is twofold: 1) to investigate and document tributary (Price River) habitat use by Colorado pikeminnow, and 2) explore movement patterns and habitat use of the ‘three species’ within the Price River, while obtaining ancillary information on population abundance and distribution. The proposed research and monitoring project represents a collaborative effort between the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Utah State University, and the USGS, Utah Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit to address research and monitoring needs to guide conservation and recovery planning for imperiled desert fishes threatened by extinction.
