Although most people don’t think of Oklahoma as a fishy state, it’s actually home to about 175 species of fish, including golden topminnows, bluehead shiners, two genetically distinct smallmouth bass strains, pupfish, cardinal shiners, banded pygmy sunfish, and alligator gar. This relatively high species number is due largely to Oklahoma’s varied climate, geology and topography, all of which contribute to habitat diversity. Though few people realize it, Oklahoma is one of only four states with more than 10 ecoregions (or broad habitat types) and per square mile is the most habitat diverse state in the contiguous United States.

NANFA has partnered with FishMap.org to better document native fish location data from users, FishNet 2, and USGS NAS. It provides an interactive and detailed map of your local watersheds so you can learn about your native fish.
The Yellowfin Shiner (Notropis lutipinnis) occurs in the Edisto, Savannah, Altamaha, and Chattahoochee drainages of South Carolina and Georgia. This species may also be found in the uppermost reaches of the Little Tennessee River system in North Carolina.
