There are research groups around that work with nongame fishes, such as
Conservation Fisheries Inc. in Knoxville, TN, and the Twilight Conservancy
in Florida trying to work with Pteronotropis species. But it's tough to
finance a stand-alone natives research organization. I suppose you could
also consider various federal activities of the Fish and Wildlife Service,
such as their attempt to "ark" Devil's Hole Pupfish populations in locations
away from Devil's Hole, NV.

It all depends on what somebody somewhere is willing to pay, for better or
