Status of the stonecat (Noturus flavus) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the stonecat, the only member of the catfish family native to Alberta. Although this species is fairly common in many areas south and east of Alberta, it is extremely rare within the province, with a known distribution limited to the lower and midsections of the Milk River mainstem and the lower North Milk River. Its status is currently ranked as Undetermined in the province. 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.
