Anyone have any info on anyone or any facility other than USFW that has or is
breeding these two species? My friend at the Denver aquarium is looking for
the information.

Hi Nick,

How are things going?

Got a question for you since you are quite active with NANFA and have contacts
there. We had our bonytail and/or humpback chub spawn successfully this year,
and we are raising the fry successfully so far (we have been unable to
determine which species the fry are, and we have adults of both species in the
exhibit). We are wondering if any other facilities or organizations outside of
the USFW hatchery system have accomplished a successful natural spawning. We
have sent photos to the larval fish lab at the university in Fort Collins to
see if they can identify which chub they are.

Thanks for your help

Take care
