Walleye delay action on endangered Colorado pikeminnow

Posted: Updated:
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) -

The endangered Colorado pikeminnow is facing a new threat as efforts to help the fish recover continue.
  
Officials say walleye have found their way into the Colorado River and are eating young pikeminnows.
  
Tom Chart is a fisheries biologist who heads the Upper Colorado River Endangered Species Recovery Program for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
  
Chart tells The Daily Sentinel that it's likely that walleye found their way up the Colorado from Lake Powell.
  
Efforts are underway in Colorado and Utah to control the walleye.
  
Colorado is working to make sure walleye are prevented from reaching the rivers by putting up screens to block them. Utah officials have introduced sterile walleye into the river to inhibit the predator.
