Fishes of the Rio Yaqui (4 spp.) F 2 San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge (520) 364-2104 Beautiful shiner Cyprinella formosa 2 2.5 Develop or enhance new and existing habitats; monitor success of habitat management Ongoing Current FY 1995 - FY 1999 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Arizona Department of Game and Fish, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Refuges and Wildlife, USFWS Regional Office 2 Management: Identify/Protect Foraging, Breeding and Mig Habitats, Management: Habitat Maintenance and Manipulation, Management: Land Use, Management: Population Monitoring Volunteer, Internal Field Assistance 2015-Urquides Pond was rehabilitated following damage caused by Hurricane Odile. Big Tank and its overflow were rehabilitated to benefit Yaqui catfish. One wetland impound rehabilitated, Cottonwood Cienega, and topminnow introduced (2014). 5 new impoundments created, Hackberry Ponds, 1.25 acres; 2 impoundments rehabilitated, Robertson Cienega, 0.3 acres; 3 gabions rebuit or added to; pole planted approximately 30 trees in Black Draw; treated invasive vegetation with herbicide and removed mechanicallly from 10 impoundments; reseeded areas cleared during construction of DHS Tactical Infrastructure to prevent sedimentation into streams and impoundments; funded habitat improvement projects on privates lands; and drilled new well to supplement water supply on impoundment on private land that is fed by a spring (2011). Annual/bi annual monitoring on refuges, in Mexico, and on privatelands (annual). 4 Gabions have been built up and 2 new gabions put in place. New wetland created (2011). A fish passage project was completed in January of 2010 for Black Draw at the crossing near Twin Pond. This will allow for the safe movement of fish up and down Black Draw during periods when Black Draw flows, while allowing vehicles to pass through without stirring up sediment or harming fish. A 2 year study was completed on the most recent Hay Hollow Pond to measure for vegetation succesion and fish propagation (2009). Report available at the Refuge Headquarters. Annual October monitoring has shown that populations have remained stable with the implemntation of habitat improvements. Cattails removed and or thinned from wetland impoundments (annual). Trees removed from margins on several impoundments(2013, 2014). Pole planting in Hay Hollow Wash (2013, 2014), Black Draw (2014), and Leslie Creek (2014).

Fishes of the Rio Yaqui (4 spp.) F 2 San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge (520) 364-2104 Beautiful shiner Cyprinella formosa 2 3.5 Monitor health of fish populations and occupied habitats Ongoing Current FY 1995 - FY 1999 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Arizona Department of Game and Fish, Centro Ecologico de Sonora, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Refuges and Wildlife, USFWS Regional Office 2, Fishery Resources Program Research: Population Surveys Volunteer, Internal Technical Assistance, Internal Field Assistance Private lands monitoring has been included the annual monitoring that takes place each October, with an additional survey in the spring in colder/higher elevation climates to monitor survivability of stocked species. Estimated costs for this are $9000 annually. The numbers for estimated costs do not reflect this or show that this is an annual population survey and has been ongoing since the approval of the recovery plan in 1995. Included in this annual monitoring is HCP monitoring for the El Coronado Ranch at Turkey Creek in the Chiricahua Mountains and suplemental monitoring of the Douglas High School Pond, 99 Bar Ranch, and the Bar Boot Ranch. For annual monitoring on San Bernadino NWR and Leslie Canyon NWR in 2010 Proportion of Habitat Occupied (PHO) for Gila purpurea was .51291 for all impoundments, up from .50858 in 2008, and .75246 for Poeciliopsis sonoriensis, down from .88925. Ictalurus pricei were captured all three of the three known impoundments in for the first time since 2004; House Pond, at the Slaughter Ranch; Twin Pond on SBNWR: and Big Tank at El Coronado Ranch. In addition to the annual monitoring the refuge also monitors for infestation rates of Asian tapeworm in G. purpurea. Rates from current moitoring show an 70% rate of occurence in sampled fish and a 100% rate of occurence in wetlands surveyed. Even with these rates of occurence it is believed that Asian tapeworm is having very little, if any effect on survivability of G. purpurea, based on data from annual monitoring. Cyprinella formosa are now found in four impoundments on SBNWR and monitoring showed breeding had taken place in two of the four impoundments. Monitoring at the Bar Boot Ranch has not occurred this year due to salvage efforts from the Chiricahua Mountains in response to the Horseshoe 2 Fire. 1200 G. purpurea were relocated to the ranch from El Coronado. There were no P. sonoriensis observed. A report on the monitoring of El Coronado Ranch is available from the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office in Pinetop. No report has been obtained for Mexican populations.
