Glassy darter

The Glassy darter lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

The fallfish and glassy darter were relatively abundant in our samples, whereas we caught only one cutlips minnow (Table 2). In all, eight of the 19 species collected in 1997 were represented by only one or two individuals. More
