Catostomus catostomus

Longnose Sucker lives in cooler streams and lakes with clean gravel, and is native to 13 of 18 watersheds. It has declined in the Ontario, Susquehanna and Raquette watersheds; it appears most stable in eastern and northern watersheds. It remains in about half of the areas where it was known historically.
