Cumberland darter

The Cumberland darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

The Cumberland darter occurs in Kentucky and Tennessee, the rush darter occurs in Alabama and the chucky madtom and laurel dace both occur in Tennessee. If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would extend the Act's protections to these species. More

Cumberland darter still occurs, the species is indirectly provided some Federal protection from Federal actions and activities through the Endangered Species Act, due to the fact that these seven streams also support the blackside dace (Phoxinus cumberlandensis), federally listed as threatened.
