Status of the St. Mary shorthead sculpin (provisionally Cottus bairdi punctulatus) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the St. Mary shorthead sculpin, a small freshwater sculpin species found in Alberta only in the St. Mary and Milk river systems. Because of its limited distribution, the fish is vulnerable to extirpation through habitat alteration and loss and is therefore 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.
