Examination of the distribution of sighting distances for the Roanoke darter *Percina roanoka*, Roanoke logperch *P. rex* and black jumprock *Moxostoma cervinum* indicates that strip transect sighting models that assume probability of sighting remaining constant out to the limits of observer visibility are not appropriate for these benthic species. Distance sampling models that assume decreased sighting probability with increasing distance of the target from the observer provide a reasonable alternative to strip transect sighting models. -from Authors
