About this book

Containing habitat information, physical descriptions, photographs, and range maps for more than 150 species of freshwater fishes that can be found in Texas, this field guide is an indispensable reference and research tool for ichthyologists, professional fisheries biologists, amateur naturalists, and anglers alike. The introductory section offers an illustrated guide to the common counts and measurements used for fish identification; a brief explanation of fish phylogeny; and a scientific key to help identify the fish families in Texas.

The book includes species accounts of native and introduced fishes found in the freshwaters of Texas. Each account covers the physical characteristics, habitat, and distribution of the fish, with additional comments of interest or importance to its life history and conservation status. With the largest collection to date of color photographs, including various color phases (breeding and non-breeding colors), the book also includes range maps within the species accounts. The closing pages of the book feature a glossary and reference section.

Media reviews
I hope many people read this guide and not only learn names and locations of Texas fishes but also gather insight into responsible choices about the uses of our natural water bodies. - from the foreword by Fran Gelwick "... as thorough a description of the identifying characteristics of fishes as I have seen... both a field guide to identification and an ichthyology laboratory manual.... Texas has needed a publication like this for many years." - David Bass, Lower Colorado River Authority"
