Rare Fish Still Swims The Colorado
Rare Fish Still Swims The Colorado

AIR DATE: October 30, 2012

Researchers with the Arizona Game and Fish recently found a rare fish in the Colorado River, the razorback sucker. One hadn't been seen in more than 20 years. Biologist Aaron Bunch will tell us why this is such a rare fish and about the methods used to actually find them.

    Afew years ago I visited the AG&F. One of the biologists had a picture of the Razorback on her office door. I mentioned to her that it was the ugliest fish I had ever seen. She almost threw me out of her office. I've had the opportunity to work as a volunteer with the AG&F biologists in the Grand Canyon, including Aaron Bunch. They are professionals and do some great fish research in the Canyon
