Mohave Tui Chub Research
Zzyzx Mineral Springs resort.
Mojave National Preserve hosted a workshop of scientists and agency personnel in 2003 to develop a management plan for improving the status of the Mohave tui chub. Six populations, stable for at least ten years, are required to achieve down-listing from "endangered" to "threatened" status according to the Recovery Plan.
Three new research projects came out of the 2003 workshop.
