The Santa Ana Sucker Conservation Team is a group of public agencies whose goal is to determine the reasons for the decline of the Santa Ana sucker (Catostomus santaanae) in the Santa Ana River Watershed and devise strategies for the recovery of the species.
In 1998, members of a group of concerned public agencies from throughout the Santa Ana River Watershed began meetings, which led to the formation of the Santa Ana Sucker Conservation Team. Early on, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife joined the effort. SAWPA hosts the ongoing meetings and serves as the administering agency for the effort.
In April, 2000, the USFWS listed the Santa Ana sucker as a threatened fish species. The Team has funded research directed toward recovery of the fish.
