Kansas Fish Populations in Trouble

A forthcoming article by biologists associated with eight Kansas
institutions or
agencies has re-evaluated the status of native fishes in the state and
they need more protection. Led by Stephen Haslouer of the Kansas Department
of Health and Environment, the group, composed of him, Mark Eberle and
Stark (Fort Hays State University), Joseph Collins and Donald Huggins
Biological Survey, University of Kansas), David Edds (Emporia State
Keith Gido (Kansas State University), Chris Mammoliti (Tetra Tech EM,
James Triplett (Pittsburg State University), and Donald Distler (Wichita
University), assessed the current status of Kansas fishes and compared it
historical records. Their research showed that, in addition to the nine
fishes currently protected by designations such as endangered, threatened,
or in
need of conservation, an additional forty-four kinds of fishes native to our
appeared to be in decline and needed further safeguards to ensure their
continued health and survival.

A 160K pdf of the article is available on request; email to

It will be published in the April 2005 issue of the Transactions of the
Academy of Science.
