Recovery Plan for the Vermilion Darter in Alabama Available
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today announced the final recovery plan for the federally listed endangered vermilion darter is now available.
This fish lives in only 7.2 miles of the upper main stem reaches of
Turkey Creek and two of its tributaries in Jefferson County, Alabama.
These populations are sparse and isolated within certain areas of Turkey
Creek. The plan includes specific recovery objectives and criteria that
need to be met to remove this species from the list of federally protected
threatened and endangered species.
