Re: NFC: breeding question
Kristine, I have a very old paper that describes the
reproductive behavior of 14(!) species of darters
including Etheostoma spectabile. The reference:
Winn, Howard E. 1958. Comparative reproductive
behavior and ecology of fourteen species of darters
(Pisces-Percidae). Ecological Monographs, Vol. 28:
In short, the author found that orangethroats spawn
very much like rainbows, i.e. in gravel in
fast-flowing riffles. In Kentucky and Tennessee they
were observed to spawn the first week of April.
If you send me your physical address I could mail a
photocopy to you.
