About This Fish

The Snubnose Darter is found in the upper Holston River System in Virginia and Tennessee, as well as an Ohio River system in Virginia and Kentucky. They live in rocky pools and adjacent riffles with bedrock substrate. They have a bright red dot in the first membrane of their first dorsal fin, and like many members of the Snubnose Darter group, their snouts are very blunt.
