I think that's gonna be across the board Ray. I looked through all of our
local streams that I've done extensive work on. I don't know where they've
gotten their Heritage Data from (I know OEPA has these streams _nailed_ on
what lives there, so it confuses me that this data could be so inclusive)
but it was pretty interesting to see that pugnose shiners were "current" in
all streams leading to Lake Erie (which are a few samples shy of being
extirpated, as far as I know) while white sucker, emerald shiner and green
sunfish were "historic". Man I've been finding a lot of rare fish! By the
pound even! :)

But I tell you what... Having all these fish organized into a list is pretty
darned awesome. I can send someone thisaway and say "Here, click through
the pictures and be amazed. We'll go out and see all of this if you wanna."
