The canyon is located within the Hot Springs Area of Critical Environmental Concern, part of the 57,500-acre Muleshoe Ranch Cooperative Management Area, and is home to 5 species of native fish: endangered Gila chub, longfin dace, speckled dace, Sonora sucker, and desert sucker. In 2007, Hot Springs Canyon was stocked with threatened loach minnow, threatened spikedace, endangered desert pupfish, and endangered Gila topminnow, creating a diverse native fish assemblage. The proposed fish barrier will protect the native fish community from predatory, nonnative fishes that inhabit downstream waters.
