Bonita Creek Native Fish Monitoring

Marsh & Associates (M&A) has been monitoring native fish and removing nonnative sunfishes from Bonita Creek, Graham Co., Arizona with assistance and financial support from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Safford, AZ.  This monitoring is part of a long-term program initiated by BLM to evaluate relationships between populations of native and non-native fishes.  Since 2012, over 5,000 green sunfish have been removed and populations of native fishes have increased throughout the monitored area.
