Vermilion Darter

The vermilion darter (Etheostoma chermocki) is found only in Turkey Creek, a tributary of the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River. Because of its restricted habitate, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed the vermilion darter as an endangered species. Populations have increased in Turkey Creek since the 2013 removal of a dam.
