Amber darter [Percinaantesella]

The amber darter is a small, slender fish usually less than 2.5 inches long that spawns in shallow marshy areas. The top of its body is brown and the belly is yellow to cream in color. This species occupies streams with gentle riffles over sand or gravel bottoms. It feeds on avaiable vegetation.

Historically, the range of the amber darter was restricted to the upper Conasauga River basin in Georgia and Tennessee with a small population in the Etowah River, Cherokee County, Georgia. The Etowah River population was not observed in a 1983 survey. It is currently found along a 33-mile stretch of the Conasauga River fron the U.S. 411 bridge in Tenessee to the Tibbs Bridge in Murray County, Georgia.

Major factors affecting the darter's survival are runoff from agriculture and urban development as well as road and bridge construction and activities that modify the watershed area.

In an effort to recover the species, the Endangered Species Act requires consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service when new watershed control projects are proposed.

Conasauga logperch [Percina jenkinsi]

The Conasauga logperch is a large, slender darter greater than 6 inches long and has characteristic vertical dark stripes over a yellow upper body. It spawns in fast-flowing riffles over gravel-bottomed streams. The logperch feeds on aquatic invertebrates it finds by flipping stones with its pig-like snout.

Historically, the logperch has only occupied a stretch of the Conasauga River in southeastern Tennessee and northern Georgia. Currently this species is restricted to an 18-mile stretch of the Conasauga River from Minnewauga creek in Polk County, Tennessee to the State Highway 2 bridge in Murray County, Georgia.

Major factors affecting the Conasauga logperch include agricultural and urban development as well as other activities that impinge on its clean water requirements.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is monitoring the water quality in the logperch's critical habitat and researching the possibility of introducing this species into other other streams.
