About this book

Ohio's original heavily forested landscape included glacial lakes, large rivers, and streams that teemed with an abundant variety of fish, most of which remain resident today. Native Fishes of Ohio documents the more than 130 species originally found in the state and describes how their aquatic habitats have evolved as a result of agriculture and industrial development. Naturalist Dan Rice and photographer Gary Meszaros draw upon more than 40 years of fieldwork and recent hands-on experience to detail the natural history of each species of Ohio fish. The authors provide field identification characteristics and describe each fish's habitat, ecology, and distribution.

Native Fishes of Ohio is profusely illustrated with Gary Meszaros's spectacular color photographs of live specimens in their natural environment, a resource unique to Native Fishes of Ohio. The range of shapes and vivid colors will give the reader insight into the fascinating world of the state's native fishes. An ideal resource for the non-specialist, Native Fishes of Ohio will interest nature lovers, teachers, and anglers and is a must for every Ohio school and public library.
