Extirpations of native fish from the Albuquerque and Belen valleys occurred in two periods and primarily involved fluvial fishes.
Their extirpations were facilitated by increasing aridity and human-caused dewatering that caused earlier extirpations of big-river fishes, but the fluvial minnows withstood periodic dewatering; perhaps, by retreating to more-permanent reaches of the river, such as those in narrows and canyons (sensu Minckley, 1991).
