Getting OFF the endangered species list

February 22nd 2014 01:09
Too often, when an animal is placed on the endangered species list, that's about it and five or ten years later they're gone.

Here's a neat little story about a minnow found only in the United States Oregon's backwaters and it's comeback from near extinction. Although the Oregon chub is coming back, its populations will be monitored for nine years to insure proper growth.


Oregon chub
It may not look impressive but, this is an important little fish.
"So what?" you may ask. The Oregon chub itself is certainly not a game fish. However, a small fish like this is fed upon by larger fish or even birds making its presence an indicator of the water's health.





Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!
