    Description

    The Arizona Game and Fish Department (Department) has developed a Safe Harbor Agreement (SHA) for four native fishes in Arizona. The SHA will allow Gila and Yaqui topminnow (Poeciliopsis occidentalis and P. sonoriensis) and desert and Quitobaquito pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius and C. eremus) to be released onto non-Federal lands while safeguarding landowner options for future property use. The SHA will assist recovery of these species by: creating replicate populations; creating partnerships between State, Federal, and other groups; minimizing stocking of mosquitofish and other nonindigenous species; providing for mosquito control; and educating those outside the native fish community about the plight of Arizona’s native fishes.
