Abstract: This report addresses the feasibility of using genetic methods as a new approach for biological control of non-native fish within the Gila River Basin. This feasibility study was sponsored by the Central Arizona Project Funds Transfer Program. The report reviews the status of existing genetic methods including chromosome set manipulations and recombinant DNA techniques; takes a preliminary look at potential ecological and human health risks; outlines policy and regulatory considerations; stresses the need for and presents an approach for multi-stakeholder deliberation; provides general cost and time estimates; and suggests integration of these considerations into a multi-component research and development program.
