Sounds like DarterFest waiting to happen... the only refs I know at first
thought relate to the slackwater darter. Telling you to check out Boschung
may seem goofy, but I think Boschung did some work on larval drift of
slackwaters. In particular, there was a 1979 report that I've seen reference
"Report on the breeding habits of the slackwater darter (Percidae:
Etheostoma boschungi) in the Cypress Creek Watershed: Auburn, Alabama,
U.S.D.A. Soil Conservation Service, 26 p."
And there's gotta be more.
