U.S. Wildlife Officials Propose Endangered Status For Florida Crayfish | WGCU News



By Jessica Meszaros • Jan 3, 2018

The Panama City crayfish is listed on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website as a “Species of Special Concern.” Now the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service proposes it be a federally protected species.

Federal wildlife officials proposed Tuesday to protect a crayfish only found in Bay County under the Endangered Species Act.


The Panama City crayfish is only about 2 inches long, it’s tan-colored and has red dots on its head. There are only 13 populations found in Bay County with less than 100 crustaceans in each habitat.

Tierra Curry, senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity, says all the Panama City crayfish historically lived together in wetlands of the Pine Flatwood Forest, but then they were separated as the land was developed.

“The crayfish have been pushed into these little habitats like ditches and swells,” she says.

Curry says these crustaceans are important for multiple reasons. They create burrows that other species use, like insects and frogs. The crustaceans are also part of the food web— fish, birds and mammals eat them. And they’re herbivores that eat decaying vegetation in the water, essentially cleaning it.

“So protecting crayfish ultimately protects clean water for people,” says Curry.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently proposed classifying the crayfish as a protected endangered species. Curry says there will now be a public comment period, then scientists will weigh-in, and then she expects the Panama City crayfish to be federally protected in about a year.

UPDATE: The source for this story referred the the Panama City crayfish as a “fish,” but it’s actually a “crustacean.”



Petition: Tell Trump to Reverse Course on This Death Sentence for Birds

The Trump Administration and the US fish and wildlife service were busy reinterpreting the federal law to remove vital protections from over a 1,000 species protected under the Migrating Bird Treaty Act. Under the changes, the administration will no longer prosecute companies who oil pits, power lines, and wind turbines incidentally kill birds protected under the Act.

The species has been under government protection for the past 30 years, but their numbers are still critically low, only around 45 to 60 wolves remain.
