You're correct. There's seven fish that are also protected in AL. Here's the
most recent list - stuff that requires a scientific collecting permit, or
Federal permit(*), to take.

Alabama cavefish*
southern cavefish
spotfin chub (turquoise shiner)*
boulder darter*
coldwater darter
crystal darter
goldline darter*
holiday darter*
lollipop darter
slackwater darter*

vermilion darter*
watercress darter*
frecklebelly madtom
pygmy sculpin*
blue shiner*
Cahaba shiner*
palezone shiner*
spring pygmy sunfish

Sorry about the misinformation, hope y'all get this OK.
