Fish species at risk in the Milk and St. Mary drainages

Description

Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) initiated studies in to assess the distribution and relative abundance of species at risk throughout Alberta. Within the St. Mary and Milk river drainages, three fish species have been identified that are potentially at risk including St. Mary sculpin, western silvery minnow, and the stonecat. Although not listed as species at risk, SRD was also interested in the status of the brassy minnow and sauger. The area under study in this report included the mainstem of the Milk, North Milk, and St. Mary rivers, and Lee Creek, a major tributary to the St. Mary River. The field programs were conducted during summer and fall 2000 and 2001. Overall, 16 fish species were encountered in the Milk and St. Mary drainages during the present study. Of the five species of interest, all were encountered in the Milk River. Only the St. Mary sculpin was recorded in the St. Mary River and Lee Creek.
