Jul 14 Free Lecture Series- Utah Division of Wildlife, Christopher Michaud- Colorado Pikeminnow: Life History & Exciting Findings from the 2015 Field Season The Colorado Pikeminnow is the largest predatory fish native to the Colorado River Basin. Pikeminnow were once common & widespread throughout the southwest. Unfortunately, beginning in the 1930s, populations of this big river predatory fish began to decline. Originally listed as endangered by USFWS in 1967, Pikeminnow were given full protection under the Endangered Species Act in 1973. Today, the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program, a multi stakeholder partnership, is attempting to recover this imperiled species through an adaptive management strategy. Researchers monitor both adult & “young of year” (fish in their first year of life) Pikeminnow populations to gain insight into the success (or failure) of these management actions. We will discuss some recent changes in the upper basin which could account for the positive response seen in young of year numbers and what implications this could have for Pikeminnow recovery. Sponsored by the Canyonlands Natural History Association & Museum of Moab. 6pm at the Moab Information Center, corner or Center & Main.
