    First and foremost im sorry to hear if there are any endangered species in your state.

    Im just wondering what endangered species of fish are in your area.
    In Tennesse, the endangered fish are:
    The lake sturgeon
    Alligator gar
    and the alligator snapping turtle (not rally a fish but it does live in the water)

    These are the only ones ive heard of and i hope they will make a good comeback

    I don't know of any endangered fish here in SW Ohio, but I am glad to say the Bald Eagle, which was recently taken off the endangered list, is starting to appear around Caesars Creek Lake. They have spotted them here for ten years, but no one has gotten pictures of them. I have been on a mission to get the first pictures all winter, to no avail....:sad2:

    There are several minnows that nobody except the biologists even can identify or care about here.also the Gila trout which I do think is worth saving.
