Rare fish found in Ohio waters for the first time since 1939

UPI – Wildlife officials in Ohio said a rare fish believed to have been extinct in the state has been found in local waters for the first time since 1939.

The Ohio Division of Wildlife said in a Facebook post that two longhead darters were caught by fish management crews conducting electrofishing bass surveys in the Ohio River, marking the first time the species has been documented in Ohio in more than 80 years.

“This striking creature, native to Ohio, was thought to be extirpated from the state,” the post said, using a term that means “locally extinct”.
