  • Meeting Report, Chattanooga TN 1998
    get a lot of respect from fisheries professionals and the public at large Dr Mettee then shared a secret he asked us not to reveal He loves his job surveying fishes It s a hoot But he s afraid that if his boss got wind of this fact he d stop getting paid Fortunately his boss is not a reader of American Currents Or so we hope Next up was Pat Rakes speaking on the Captive Propagation and Reintroduction of Rare Nongame Native Freshwater Species Mr Rakes along with J R Shute is the Director of Conservation Fisheries Inc CFI a non profit conservation company in Knoxville Tennessee Their goal is to use captive breeding to reestablish fishes in their native habitats so they may be downlisted or removed from protected status altogether Mr Rakes showed slides of CFI s facilities and spoke of their success and sometimes failure with the following species blackside dace Phoxinus cumberlandensis CFI collected this fish from heavily silted streams in Kentucky Since it spawns over stoneroller nests in the wild stoneroller milt was added to its tank upon which it colored up quickly spawned and then died as if burned up from its intense spawning activity blue shiner Cyprinella caerulea Taking a clue from the fish s preference for wood cracks in the wild CFI s specimens spawned in the ridges in a stack of tiles These fish were propagated not to be reintroduced to the wild but to be killed in water toxicity studies spotfin chub Cyprinella monacha As with blue shiners CFI provides this fish with stacks of tiles the fish deposits its eggs in the crevices between the tiles usually only the bottom crevice This habit and CFI s observation that spotfin chub larvae are strongly benthic living near the bottom for about the first 30 days partially explains why the species is so rare larval habitat and spawning sites must be silt free Cape Fear shiner Notropis mekistocholas The larvae of this fish have no mouth digestive tract or pigment they re basically a muscle mass connected to a yolk sac smoky madtom Noturus baileyi and yellowfin madtom N flavipinnis Since these fishes like to hide under slab rocks and PVC cover the only way to view their behavior is to elevate the aquarium and look up from underneath Although these catfishes colored up and defended territory in CFI s tanks they have yet to spawn However CFI has propagated hundreds of each from nests collected from Citico Creek a Little Tennessee River tributary reintroducing those specimens into nearby Abrams Creek where the madtoms were poisoned out in 1957 by state and federal agencies seeking to enhance the trout fishery duskytail darter Etheostoma percnurum Like all darters in the subgenus Catonotus it lays its eggs in a single layer on the underside of slab rocks or other structures that provide a cavity with a flat ceiling boulder darter Etheostoma wapiti Like other members of the subgenus Nothonotus and the genus

  • The Tennessee Aquarium
    of the pools is home to five alligator snapping turtles including one male that weighs almost 150 pounds making him more than a century old two Florida softshells three river cooters a Florida cooter and a male American alligator that s over 6 feet long Over a thousand mosquitofish live in this pool as well providing a constantly reproducing food source for the ever hungry turtles Another pool known by Aquarium staffers as the snake pit is a paludarium like exhibit with burrows built up against the glass providing close up views of canebrake and eastern diamondback rattlesnakes Many diminutive fishes swim in the water portion of this exhibit including banded pygmy sunfish but I was hard pressed to find any A complete list of Delta Country s fishes is given in Table 2 As in the Cove birds including a little blue heron roam freely During a subsequent after hours visit I was amused to see wood ducks wobbling down the hallway like nobody s business they like to leave the exhibits at night and need to be collected the following morning Table 2 Fishes in the Tennessee Aquarium s Delta Country Exhibit shortnose gar Lepisosteus platyrhincus bowfin Amia calva taillight shiner Notropis maculatus flagfin shiner Notropis signipinnis lake chubsucker Erimyzon sucetta sharpfin chubsucker Erimyzon tenuis blacktail redhorse Moxostoma poecilurum least killifish Heterandria formosa golden topminnow Fundulus chrysotus russetfin topminnow Fundulus escambia blackstripe topminnow Fundulus notatus western mosquitofish Gambusia affinis longear sunfish Lepomis megalotis brown darter Etheostoma edwini blackbanded darter Percina nigrofasciata banded pygmy sunfish Elassoma zonatum On your way to Delta Country you catch glimpses of the 88 000 gallon Gulf of Mexico tank the only permanent saltwater exhibit at the Aquarium You can see it in all its glory standing at the lower of its two stories Because it s saltwater with public aquarium staples like sharks rays and tarpon prowling its depths the Gulf of Mexico is the most generic of the Tennessee Aquarium s tanks It s the kind of big flashy tank the general i e non native fish enthusiast public ogles over most It houses twenty five species of fishes Table 3 none of which have been added since the Aquarium opened in fact the sting rays have have given birth to four litters during the past year The foot long babies have been given to other U S zoos and aquariums Volunteer divers feed the fish daily The Aquarium hopes to add more fish in the coming year including moray eels Table 3 Fishes in the Tennessee Aquarium s Gulf of Mexico Exhibit bonnethead shark Sphyrna tiburo southern stingray Dasyatis americana cownose ray Rhinoptera bonasus tarpon Megalops atlanticus squirrelfish Holocentrus adscensionis crevalle jack Caranx hippos lookdown Selene vomer permit Trachinotus falcatus yellowtail snapper Ocyurus chrysurus porkfish Anisotremus virginicus caesar grunt Haemulon carbonarium smallmouth grunt

gray angelfish Pomacanthus arcuatus French angelfish Pomacanthus paru sergeant major Abudefduf saxatilis great barracuda Sphyraena barracuda common hogfish Lachnolaimus maximus Spanish hogfish Bodianus rufus ocean surgeonfish Acanthurus bahianus blue tang Acanthurus coeruleus Around the corner from the Gulf of Mexico is the Amazon and other Rivers of the World Among them is Canada s St Lawrence River This exhibit which is chilled to 56 F year round showcases lake sturgeon Acipenser fulvescens lake trout Salvelinus namaycush yellow perch Perca flavescens walleye Stizostedion vitreum and sauger Stizostedion canadense The centerpiece of the Aquarium is its multi exhibit Tennessee River gallery featuring fishes and other animals from the Tennessee River and its various nooks and crannies Graphic displays examine the history of the river comparing the original Tennessee with the river as it now exists as a reservoir system harnessed by 35 dams Also included in this gallery is Turtles Nature s Living Sculptures Architecture in Bone which bills itself as the largest collection of freshwater turtles on public display in the world The first tank contains Miss Patty the largest largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides ever caught during a B A S S sanctioned tournament a hefty 13 lb 9 oz She was caught in Corsicana Texas by Mark Menendez who donated her to the Aquarium The second tank re creates a Tennessee River oxbow fishes include orangespotted sunfish Lepomis humilus and flier Centrarchus macropterus The next Tennessee River gallery tank plunges you into the swamp like lily pad covered waters of northwest Tennessee s famous Reelfoot Lake featured in the movies In the Heat of the Night and U S Marshals Reelfoot Lake was formed in 1812 as the result of a massive earthquake perhaps the largest in recorded North American history The force of the quake caused an 18 000 acre section of cypress swamp to sink 10 feet to form a basin that was covered by water when the Mississippi River s flow was diverted and ran briefly upstream The exhibit features young paddlefish Polyodon spathula front cover golden shiner Notemigonus chrysoleucas blue sucker Cycleptus elongatus and a shoal of creek chubsucker Erimyzon oblongus among others The paddlefish enjoy brine shrimp that are dripped in through an air hose from a catwalk above the tank the instant the shrimp hit the water the 18 prehistoric filter feeders open their cavernous mouths and strain the shrimp through their long gill rakers The blue suckers are indeed blue and sleek I can see why Scott Mettee thinks they are sexy They sift through the gravel with great poise and determination Note Neither paddlefish nor blue sucker are currently found in Reelfoot Lake although they probably once occurred there The Aquarium is in the process of converting its Reelfoot Lake exhibit into a Mississippi River exhibit Next to Reelfoot Lake are two heavily planted tanks depicting Tennessee River backwaters The first one contains starhead topminnow Fundulus dispar bluefin killifish Lucania goodei bluespotted sunfish Enneacanthus gloriosus and banded sunfish Enneacanthus obesus among others The second tank contains the endangered

    Since Bob Bock was the only one who kept his waders on he waded into the mud and gave the van its ultimately freeing push But as the back wheel spun free Bob got sprayed from head to toe with mud Then Stott Noble fell on top of him I refused to let Bob enter my Cherokee until he was out of his waders and cleaned up Naturally no one waited for Bob to change By the time Bob finished the convoy was way ahead of us and I had to double time to catch up The second site was also on the Conasauga on Ball Play Road a half mile east of US 411 Dr Etnier knocked on the door of a house that sat on the river s bank and asked permission for us to collect and to park our vehicles off the road Permission was granted The water here was shallower than at the other site and was therefore easier to seine We caught most of the same species we caught at the previous location plus the following spottail shiner Cyprinella venusta mountain shiner Lythrurus lirus speckled chub Macrhybopsis ca aestivalis burrhead shiner Notropis asperifrons silverstripe shiner Notropis stilbius riffle minnow Phenacobius catostomus Alabama hogsucker Hypentelium etowanum southern studfish Fundulus stellifer shadow bass Ambloplites ariommus redbreast sunfish Lepomis auritus longear sunfish Lepomis megalotis redspotted sunfish Lepomis miniatus speckled darter Etheostoma stigmaeum blackbanded darter Percina nigrofasciata We spent so much time collecting that we forgot about the military ration lunch Casper had gotten us not that missing such a lunch was a bad thing In fact it was now pushing dinner time and we had reservations at a fancy restaurant back in Chattanooga So we packed our coolers removing the blue shiners that snuck in and high tailed
