The Hot Springs Canyon fish barrier is intended to prevent upstream movements of nonnative fishes from the San Pedro River to portions of Hot Springs Canyon populated with federally-listed native fishes (existing Gila chub, repatriated loach minnow, spikedace, Gila topminnow, and desert pupfish). Construction of the Hot Springs Canyon fish barrier was completed in December 2010.
