Gila River Basin Native Fishes Conservation Program
The Gila River Basin Native Fishes Conservation Program (Program) was established to partially mitigate impacts of the Central Arizona Project (CAP) canal on threatened and endangered fishes in the Gila River basin. The primary goals of the Program are to achieve enhanced conservation status of federally protected species and alleviate threats from non-native aquatic species. It is hoped that this website will broaden your understanding of native fish in the Gila River basin and explain in detail the conservation measures that are being implemented through this Program. On this website, you will find information regarding the Program's background, recovery activities, educational opportunities, and administrative processes.
