PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

More than one hundred concerned Perry County residents gathered to talk with U.S. Wildlife representatives to discuss a possibly endangered species of fish.

The fish is the rare Grotto Sculpin, a fish which is found only in Perry County, Missouri.

The Grotto Sculpin lives in Perry County's hundreds of caves and sink holes.

If it does end up on the list, some worry it could bring regulations about pesticides and land use.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife representatives say there is no time table for making a decision about the Grotto Sculpin.
