Meet Our Superb Suckers!

Record #:
North Carolina is home to over 29 species of sucker fish, and they exist in every river system in the state. They play an important role in the ecology of the river basins and are indicators of water quality, as they cannot survive in polluted areas. With some species in decline, it is important to ensure their survival.
