Eastern Creek Chubsucker

Creek Chubsucker

Erimyzon oblongus

Eastern Creek Chubsucker inhabits lowland streams, headwater streams and lakes, often ones that are dark-stained. Its range includes watersheds east of the Genesee and south of Lake Ontario but it is absent from the Oswegatchie watershed. It is in the eight watersheds of the Atlantic slope and in three of the Great Lakes drainage. It appears to have decreased in the Susquehanna and Delaware in recent collections.
