Because a marketing/PR company/department wrote the article, not a scientist?

Whatever gets people's attention, I say. I'd never have read about the
Maryland darter if someone didn't irritate your good skeptical senses :)

I found a site that talks about the Maryland darter (Etheostoma sellare).
What's unusual is that they called it the "world's rarest fish." Doesn't
that seem like an odd claim? I don't doubt that it's rare, but how can they
say that it is the rarest? Check it out at Any of you MD folks ever
observed this fish?
