The pygmy sculpin -- now named Cottus paulus -- is a federally
threatened species. If you see its habitat being threatened, please contact
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service at 1875 Century Boulevard, Atlanta, GA
30345, phone 404-679-4000, fax 404-679-4006.

You may also wish to contact attorney Ray Vaughan of WildLaw, an
Alabama-based law firm specializing in habitat protection and
endangered species. You can get Ray's phone number at

I know that the city of Anniston has agreed not to do anything that would
affect the fish. And I doubt that a highway was built without at least
consultation from the Fish & Wildlife folks.

Please let us know what you find out.
