01-05-2017 - Barred Topminnow
The Isla de la Juventud is probably the only place in Cuba where the Barred Topmminow, Quintana atrizona, can be found. Despite being evaluated as Endangered in 2012, current information suggests that this species fulfills the IUCN criteria for Critically Endangered. We will update the distribution and assess habitat requirements and current conservation status of the target species and associated freshwater endemic ichthyofauna.
