Examples of "hypentelium"
This is one of three species in the genus "
roanokense" inhabits the Atlantic slope. There is a historical connection of the Tennessee River with the Mobile Basin, suggesting a closer sister relationship between "
nigricans" and "H. etowanum".
is a genus of suckers found in eastern United States and Canada. There are three recognized species in this genus.
The Alabama hogsucker ("
etowanum") is a species of fish in the family Catostomidae, the suckers. It is native to several river systems in the southeastern United States. Its range includes much of the state of Alabama and extends into parts of Mississippi, Tennessee, and Georgia.
Species such as "Catostomus commersonii" and "
nigricans" are commonly sought for eating. They can be canned or smoked, but are most commonly fried. Traditionally, small incisions are made in the flesh (termed "scoring") before frying to allow small internal bones to soften and become palatable.
The Cumberland darter lives in pools and slower, shallower parts of streams, in areas with sand or silt substrates, and not in areas with rocky or cobbly substrates. Associated fish species include creek chub ("Semotilus atromaculatus"), northern hogsucker ("
nigricans"), stripetail darter ("E. kennicotti"), and Cumberland arrow darter ("E. sagitta").
They can be taken by many fishing methods, including angling and gigging. Often, species such as "Catostomus commersonii" and "
nigricans" are preferred for eating. They can be canned, smoked, or fried, but small incisions often must be made in the flesh (termed "scoring") before frying to allow small internal bones to be palatable.
The Roanoke hogsucker ("
roanokense") is a freshwater ray-finned fish found in the upper and middle Roanoke River basin in North Carolina and Virginia. It is very similar to and lives in the same area as the northern hogsucker. They are in the sucker family, Catostomidae. Many anglers enjoy catching them due to their ability to put up a good fight. They are not considered a game fish and are considered significantly rare due to their limited distribution.
The northern hogsucker ("
nigricans") is a freshwater ray-finned fish belonging to the family Catostomidae, the suckers. It is native to the United States and Canada where it is found in streams and rivers. It prefers clear, fast-flowing water, where it can forage on the riverbed for crustaceans, mollusks, aquatic insects, algae and detritus. It turns over small pebbles and scrapes materials off rocks and sucks up the particles, and other species of fish sometimes station themselves downstream from its activities so as to garner disturbed food fragments. Breeding takes place on gravel bottoms in shallow riffles in late spring. This fish is susceptible to such man-made disturbances as channelization, sedimentation, pollution, and dam construction. However, it has a wide range and is a common species so the International Union for Conservation of Nature has rated its conservation status as being of "least concern".
The creek chubsucker is a bottom feeding forager in freshwater streams. The adults are generally solitary, and can be found near the substrate of slowly flowing streams where they forage for food. Most of the prey items making up the creek chubsucker’s diet include microcrustacea (copepods, cladocerans, chironomid larvae etc.), organic detritus, algae, diatoms, small clams, and Diptera larvae. A majority of juvenile life is spent in mixed schools with other cyprinids in midwater areas. Creek chubsucker juveniles are thought to be an important forage species for game fish like the Esocides and Centrarchids, but their rapid growth rate usually ensures escape from predatory fish and assures an annual recruitment of young. The creek chubsucker shares habitat with and requires similar spawning sites as white suckers ("Catostomus commersoni") and northern hog suckers ("
nigracans"). This inadvertently leads to competition of space and resources.
