PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's estimate of the cost of saving a small cave-dwelling fish in southeast Missouri ranges from $140,000 to $4 million.

The service says the cost for protecting the grotto sculpin in Perry County over the next 18 years depends largely on the value of existing efforts. Other factors are if the species is classified as endangered and if the area where it lives is designated a critical habitat. The Southeast Missourian reports the service will take comments through June 6th on a proposal to list the fish as endangered. A decision on whether the fish will be placed on the endangered list is expected in September.

Perryville and Perry County residents have compiled their own plan to protect the fish.
