These underwater rainbows can be found in the waters of Virginia and West Virginia’s upper Kanawha River Basin. With their vibrant teal, red and orange colors, candy darters are a small freshwater fish native to the Gauley, Greenbrier, and New River watersheds.

Although darters in general make up 20 percent of freshwater fish species in North America, candy darters are found nowhere else on earth. The fish was protected as endangered in 2018, and we are designating 368 miles of occupied streams as critical habitat for the species http://ow.ly/6p0W50EjZIP
