Recovery Outline for Sharpnose Shiner and Smalleye Shiner O 2 Arlington Ecological Services Field Office (817) 277-1100 Smalleye Shiner Notropis buccula 1 1 Establish partnerships to manage and control saltcedar encroachment along the riparian corridor of occupied areas of the upper Brazos River basin. The Service's Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and the Brazos River Authority are three examples of groups implementing saltcedar control projects in the area. Areas where saltcedar is removed should be replanted with native grasses and riparian trees to reduce the likelihood of saltcedar reestablishment. Priority areas will likely include riparian corridors along occupied river reaches, particularly the upper Brazos River, Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, and North Fork Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, where the sharpnose and smalleye shiner appear most abundant.

Once a preferred structure is determined, work with landowners to replace existing structures with new structures (potentially through a cost-share program and the National Fish Passage Program).
