An endangered adult Carolina madtom (Noturus furiosus) at Conservation Fisheries in Knoxville, Tennessee. This fish was collected in Neuse River in North Carolina. This is one of just two fish collected in this place in the past 8 years, so biologists fear that the species may soon be extinct in this river in the near future. It persists in one other river system, the Tar River in North Carolina.

This fish depends on mussels to survive; empty mussel shells provide them with both cover and nesting habitat. Mussels are also not doing well in these places, which hurts this fish. Factory farms and introduced flathead catfish are leading to their demise as well.
