Ongoing Current Prior to FY 1995 FY 2024 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service State of Utah, State of Arizona, Fisheries Resources , Fish and Wildlife Enhancement, USFWS Regional Office 2 - Albuquerque, USFWS Regional Office 6 - Denver Research: Genetics Contract, Internal Field Assistance As described in section 2.3 of the SSA, the Humpback Chub can hybridize with Roundtail Chub or Bonytail where the species co-exist. Incidence of hybridization appears to be higher during periods of drought when spring flows are reduced in magnitude and less arduous conditions allow for invasions of Roundtail Chub (Kaeding et al 1990; Chart and Lentsch 1999; Francis and McAda 2011). Periodic high spring flows can reduce the numbers of Roundtail Chub—and nonnative predators—in population centers. Although introgressive hybridization may be part of the evolutionary history of the species, the effect of hybridization on contemporary populations is not understood.

In the upper basin, parasites and diseases do not appear to pose a significant threat to Humpback Chub. In the lower basin, the Asian tapeworm is common in the LCR, and is carried by infected fish into the mainstem where warming temperatures could enable this parasite to complete its life history. Fish being translocated to other locales from the LCR are being cleansed of parasites and diseases before the fish are released into the wild. Uncertainties exist as to the introduction of a new parasite or disease into Humpback Chub populations, although the likelihood of this introduction is currently believed to be quite low.
