One of the many great parts of the convention is the auction that included a large selection of books and I was fortunate enough to bring home several (looking back I wish that I had bid more aggressively and brought home a few more!). I found time to read “A Net Full of Natives” this past week and I can completely understand why many refer to it as the little book that introduced them to the wonders of native fish. In addition to being informative, it was a truly enjoyable 75 pages of reading. It is written in a narrative style and introduces nine unique native species of fish ranging from more common sunfish to less common mudminnows and sticklebacks. I am curious to know who has read this book and did it prompt your entry or expand your interest in native fishes?
…next on the list is “Fishes of Utah”. No really, there is a “Fishes of Utah”!
