Scientists named a new species of colourful, freshwater fish after President of US, Barack Obama. The reason for this is, due to his ‘global vision of environmental protection and conservation’. Actually the Scientists discovered five new species of freshwater fish called darters in river drainages in eastern North America. The main one named after US President Barak Obama and the remaining species named after Teddy Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton (Presicents) and Al Gore (vice president ).

What are these Darters ? 

Darters are the smallest members of the perch family, and are named after their ability to zip around, under and into rocks and sediment on the beds of clean, fast-moving waterways. These beautiful freshwater fish has distinctive bright orange and blue colours and is generally found in fast-flowing rivers around America. Almost 200 darter species have so far been discovered, most of which live in the rivers and creeks of northern Alabama and eastern Tennessee. They are one of the most diverse groups of native North American fishes.
