About this book

This authoritative reference provides an up-to-date checklist of common and scientific names for all described and taxonomi­cally valid fish species living in freshwaters and marine waters of North America. This eighth edition reflects taxonomic changes that have occurred since 2013 and is expanded geographically to include all species found within the exclusive economic zones of Canada, Mexico, and the United States. It includes names for 5,089 species and 333 families, an increase from 3,875 species and 260 fami­lies in the seventh edition. It also provides the rationale and methodology for com­mon name allocation and history of changes from the previous edition and includes English, French, and Spanish names. The publication was compiled in collaboration with the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.
