U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sucker Recovery Public Meeting October 15, 2008,
5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Shilo Inn, Klamath Lake Room, 2500 Almond Street Klamath Falls

In June 2008, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it would begin revising the recovery plan for Lost River And Shortnosed Suckers. These fish, which are native to the Upper Klamath Basin, are endangered species. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the federal agency that is responsible for recovering these species. The goal of a recovery plan is to outline the steps and conditions that need to be met in order for these fish to be recovered to the point where they can be Removed from the Endangered Species List.

Experts familiar with these fish and the Klamath Falls community are working with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop this recovery plan over the next several months. The purpose of this meeting is to update the public on the work of the recovery team to date, and receive comments from the community about the recovery process.

The public is invited to attend an open house beginning at 5:30, which will feature the latest research and information pertaining to the endangered fish. A presentation on the recovery process, followed by a public Q&A, will begin at 7:00 p.m.

For more information, please contact the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Klamath Falls office at (541) 885-8481. You can also find more information about the recovery process at the Service's website: http://www.fws.gov/klamathfallsfwo/

Lost River and Shortnose Sucker Recovery Plan

The US Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has initiated a process to revise the Lost River and Shortnose Sucker Recovery Plan that was completed in 1993. A recovery team has been selected and the Desert Research Institute contracted to prepare a draft plan over the next year with assistance from the recovery team, stakeholders and the public. The Service will use its Klamath Falls Fish and Wildlife Office website to post information on the process including: calendar of meeting dates, recovery team meeting notes, public meeting notes, stakeholder meeting notes, contact information, press releases, relevant technical documents and other related information.
