Endangered Chub Reintroduced to the Great Smokies

Record #:
Spotfin chubs are among the rarest fish in the Southeast and are found only in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Water pollution and reservoir construction have reduced its habitat. Using spotfin found only in the Little Tennessee River within the state, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and other state and federal agencies seek to reintroduce the fish to Abrams Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains. The planned five-year project is now in its second year.
