Status of the western silvery minnow (Hybognathus argyritis) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the western silvery minnow, a small cyprinid fish found in large plains streams of the Missouri and Mississippi river drainages in mid-west North America. Although this species is relatively common in many areas of the United States, it is extremely rare in Alberta, with a confirmed presence only in the lower Milk River. It is included on the list of species that may be at risk in Alberta. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
