Endangered & Threatened Fish Species

Having found no single listing of all endangered, threatened or otherwise listed species of fish in the US, I searched each state’s listings and compiled the results here.

All I really wanted were redhorse and other suckers, but since I couldn’t find a comprehensive list anywhere, I decided to look for all 50 states’ endangered and threatened fish species.

I originally left out most minnows and micros except for some chubs that I knew (or thought I remembered knowing) get large enough to fish for with standard tackle. I know I left out many. As of 9/2013 I am going back to states’ lists and adding ALL listed fish species to this page. It will be a slow process. (It is now the end of 9/2014, and I haven’t made much progress.)

If anyone has millions of dollars in grant money, I’d be happy to travel the country and try to find, catch (where legal) and photograph all of these species for a glossy coffee table book. (I won’t need all your millions–just a hefty chunk of it.)

Not all states make it easy to find this info, and not all states make the info they provide easy to understand. Only a few states provide information on extirpated and extinct species. I hope to expand that eventually.

Though I am slowly updating the lists, this will always be a rough draft. Information of this type is a moving target and I make no promise that what I present here is up-to-date, legally accurate, or comprehensive. I’ll do my best. I hope it is useful. Please comment if you notice mistakes or omissions.

In the list that follows
S = state
F = federal
E = endangered
T = threatened
C = candidate for listing

Alaska

(updated 9/15/2013)

Alaska has no fish on its lists of threatened or endangered species beyond what the federal list includes. (Only 5 animals are listed by AK: 2 birds and 3 whales.)

Several species that have federal endangered or threatened status elsewhere also occur in Alaska (4 populations of coho salmon in CA, OR and WA, and white sturgeon of the Kootenai River system in ID, MT and British Columbia). Additionally, the federally threatened North American green sturgeon population of CA does appear to enter Alaskan waters but is not listed in the state.

Special status species in AZ (according to http://www.azgfd.com/w_c/edits/documents/ssspecies_bytaxon_010.pdf) are listed below.

Arkansas

(updated 10/6/2013 without using federal websites due to gov’t shutdown)

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (http://www.agfc.com/species/Pages/SpeciesEndangered.aspx) only lists two species as endangered:

  • pallid sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus) FE, listed in AR as “declining” (details)
  • ozark cavefish (Amblyopsis rosae) FT, listed in AR as “improving” (details)

The Nature Conservancy in Arkansas:

  • According to the Nature Conservancy, (cited in a 2009 article in “The Southwestern Naturalist” by McAllister, Starnes, Robison, Jenkins, Raley) the silver redhorse is “threatened and critically imperiled in Arkansas.”
  • Two species of cave crayfish are FE in Arkansas, though deemed “stable” by the AGFC. The AGFC says they are so rare as to have no common names (details), but the The Nature Conservancy site (http://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives/regions/northamerica/unitedstates/arkansas/explore/endangered-species-of-arkansas.xml) refers to them as the Hell Creek Cave Crayfish (Cambarus zophonastes) and the Benton County Cave Crayfish (Cambarus aculabrum).
  • There are also a dozen or more species of mussels, clams and snails listed as threatened or endangered in the state, along with several amphibians.

The Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission has a more extensive list than the AGFC, and a handy search engine (http://www.naturalheritage.com/research-data/rarespecies-search.aspx). In the following list, INV = Inventory Element, meaning the species seems to be of concern and work is underway to assess its status in the state. State rankings are as follows: S1 = Extremely rare, S2 = Very rare, S3 = Rare to uncommon, SH = Historically known but no recent records, and SX = Extirpated from the state.

(Updated 9/29/14)

Endangered:

  • Pallid Sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus)
  • White Sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) (Kootenai River population)

Threatened:

  • Bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) (Columbia River basin and St. Mary – Belly River populations) Threatened: Clark Fork, Flathead, Kootenai, St. Mary and Belly river basins; cold water rivers & lakes
    Designated as Critical Habitat:  Portions of rivers, streams, lakes and reservoirs within Deer Lodge, Flathead, Glacier, Granite, Lake, Lewis and Clark, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula, Powell, Ravalli, Sanders counties

A list of species of concern is maintained by the Montana chapter of the American Fisheries Society. Info is here: http://www.montanaafs.org/science/species-of-concern/

Species of Concern according to the Montana Natural Heritage Program (MTNHP) (see http://mtnhp.org/SpeciesOfConcern/?AorP=a) are listed below. G = Global rank (1 is most threatened, 5 is most secure). S = State rank (same scale). FE = Federally listed as endangered, FT = Federally listed as threatened. Tier 1-5 refer to state conservation status: Tier 1=Greatest conservation need; MT is obligated to protect and benefit the species. Tier 2=Moderate conservation need; MT may take action to benefit the species. Tier 3=Lower conservation need; species is important but needs no help beyond what is currently being done (if anything). Tier 4=Non-native, incidental, peripheral to species range, expanding, or common in neighboring states.

    “State Rank Reason: Pearl dace are not abundant when they are collected at the relatively few sites in cool, small streams and ponds they are known to inhabit. This factor, as well as introduced northern pike invasions into their small prairie streams, has caused them to be designated as a Montana Species of Special Concern vulnerable to extinction in the state.”

According to a pdf distributed by the Michigan DNR (web4.msue.msu.edumnfiabstractszoologyMoxostoma_carinatum.pdf), the river redhorse is listed as endangered in Florida, South Carolina, Kansas and Oklahoma; threatened in Quebec, Ontario, New York, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Georgia and Louisiana; special concern in Indiana, Ohio, Pennsyl.vania, Virginia and West Virginia. The pdf is from 2004 and the information from 2001.

I haven’t had time to bite off Canada or Mexico yet. Any volunteers?
