Dam Removal Enables Endangered Alabama Fish to Expand Its Territory

A dam removal near Pinson, Alabama has enabled an indigenous fish species called the vermillion darter to expand its range upstream of the dam's previous location. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Freshwater Land Trust partnered to remove the century-old Shadow Lake dam in 2013 with hopes of supporting population growth for the endangered fish. Early results have already proven to be promising with expanded territory yielding increasing numbers.

The vermillion darter is a small, brightly colored fish found exclusively in a 9-mile stretch of Turkey Creek in Alabama's Jefferson County. The darter is a symbol of the success of such conservation programs, and representative of extended protections for the entire ecosystem including such wildlife as black bears and forests that shelter over 30,000 feet of biodiversity.
