Comments Close:

On November 21st, 2018 the US Fish and Wildlife Service issued a final rule to list the candy darter as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. The US Fish and Wildlife Service now "propose to designate critical habitat for the candy darter (Etheostoma osburni) under the Endangered Species Act. In total, approximately 596 stream kilometers (370 stream miles), in Virginia and West Virginia, fall within the boundaries of the proposed critical habitat designation." A draft economic analysis of the proposed designation of critical habitat is also available.
