Recovery Plan for the Mobile River Basin (15 species) F 4 Mississippi Ecological Services Field Office (601) 965-4900 Southern pigtoe Pleurobema georgianum 1 1 Protect habitat and quality Ongoing Current FY 2000 - FY 2004 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ecological Services Division, USFWS Regional Office 4 - Atlanta, All partners and stakeholders Management: General Volunteer, Graduate Student, Species Expert, Contract, Internal Technical Assistance, Internal Field Assistance, Internal Administrative 26 strategic habitat units have been defined for protecting mollusk diversity in the Mobile River Basin. Partnerships are being developed to ensure appropriate management and consideration. Maps identifying high, moderate, and low priority reaches have been developed for both the Conasauga and Etowah River basins. FWS and partners encourage establishment of Corps mitigation banks, in lieu fee sites, PFW projects, conservation banks, and other stream restoration/preservation projects in the highest priority reaches and/or adjacent to other protected lands in these basins. UGA/USGS 2007 study on Etowah rare fishes concluded that urbanization, particularly increased stormwater runoff, was a major stressor. Local governments, working with FWS and partners, developed a draft Habitat Conservation Plan that focuses on protecting Etowah and Cherokee darter habitat quality by minimizing the impact of urban development on stream systems.
