The Puzzles of Range

Record #:
Some fish, like the largemouth bass, are found in streams throughout the state. Others, like the Carolina madton, have a limited range because of geographical barriers or other factors. These latter fish are called endemic, and there are five species in the state: Carolina madton, Cape Fear Shiner, Waccamaw darter, Waccamaw killifish, and Waccamaw silverside.
