Palezone Shiner F 4 Kentucky Ecological Services Field Office (502) 695-0468 Palezone shiner Notropis albizonatus 1 1.3 Conduct research necessary for species management and recovery; i.e., habitat requirements, biology, and threat analysis. Partially Complete FY 1995 - FY 1999 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy, State Conservation Agencies, Federal Agencies Research: General, Research: Habitat Requirements, Research: Taxonomic Studies, Research: Demographic Studies, Research: Predation, Research: Competition, Research: Other Information Species Expert, Contract 1.3.1&1.3.2&1.3.3; Graduate student at EKU (Richmond, KY) conducted status survey of the Little South Fork population in FY06/07 - also investigated potential threats and provided info on demographics. The Service, TNC, and Alabama Dept Conservation and Nat Res have been working cooperatively to identify potential fish/stream barriers (threats) in the Paint Rock watershed, Alabama. They recently removed an unimproved bridge (Bell-Collins site) that was preventing fish passage and creating a small impoundment in the Paint Rock mainstem. Palezone shiners have not been observed at the site; however, they are known from areas approx. 1 mile downstream.

Palezone Shiner F 4 Kentucky Ecological Services Field Office (502) 695-0468 Palezone shiner Notropis albizonatus 2 2 Search for additional populations and suitable habitat. Partially Complete FY 1995 - FY 1999 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy, State Conservation Agencies, Federal Agencies Research: Population Surveys Graduate Student, Species Expert, Contract Graduate student at Eastern KY Univ completed an intensive survey of Little South Fork in FY06/07 - effort included survey of known and new sites. One ind found by KDFWR in the Rock Crk basin (Big South Fork trib, McCreary Co - NEW Site) in 2008 - recent attempts by KDFWR to find more inds have been unsuccessful. In July 2020, OKNP, KDFWR, and the Service completed fish surveys at three sites on the Little South Fork: Green Ford (Wayne County), Steele Hollow Ford (Wayne County), and Freedom Church Ford (McCreary County/Wayne County border). A total of 43 Palezone Shiners were observed during repeated, qualitative seine hauls at each site – Green Ford (4 individuals), Steele Hollow Ford (4), and Freedom Church Ford (35). At least two age classes were observed during field surveys. Seine hauls were completed in shallow runs and slow-flowing pool habitats with bedrock, gravel, cobble, and boulder substrates. Recent surveys by the University of Alabama-Huntsville (Stallsmith 2019) expanded the species’ known range within the Paint Rock mainstem and Hurricane Creek. Stallsmith observed 16 Palezone Shiners in the Paint Rock mainstem south of Princeton, extending the species’ downstream range by about 4.7 km (2.9 mi). Stallsmith also observed one Palezone Shiner in Hurricane Creek off County Road 9 and just south of the Walls of Jericho property. This observation extended the species’ upstream range in Hurricane Creek by about 4.4 km (2.6 mi). Results of all studies indicate a small population size within the Paint Rock, with the species being restricted to only selected habitats (Shepard et al. 1997, O’Neil et al. 2013, TVA unpublished data).

Tissue samples (fin clips) were collected from both the Paint Rock River (Alabama) and Little South Fork - Cumberland River (Kentucky) systems. Genetic analyses are ongoing, and a final report is expected in late 2022 or early 2023.
