Greenside Darter

Etheostoma blennioides

Greenside Darter resides in streams with clean gravel and riffles. It is native to the five western New York watersheds and the Mohawk, where it is abundant. It is found in the western tributaries of Lake Ontario. It was introduced into the Susquehanna and Chemung watersheds by the 1990s. Catches are more frequent in recent times in many streams.
