Redfin Darter

The range of the redfin darter (Etheostoma artesiae) extends from the Sabine River in Texas to the Mobile Basin in Alabama. A small population has been documented in Halawakee Creek, a tributary to the Chattahoochee River in southeastern Alabama. Male redfin darters exhibit beautiful colors to attract females during their February through April spawning season.
