Hi everyone,


I'm writing a book that will be titled "A Field Guide to Rivers and Streams: Understanding Flowing Waters and Aquatic Life" that will be distributed by Falcon Guides nationally. The book will include a chapter on fishes with a dichotomous key and pictures of about 220 fishes with important diagnostic traits highlighted.


A few NANFA members and some other folk have already provided ~160 great shots. But I'm still short of about 66 species I'd like to profile in the book. Most of the fishes are western or plains but a few eastern species are also missing from my photo library. I'm hoping for sleek lateral shots with fins in full display but at this point I'll consider any type of quality shot. The species I am seeking are listed below.


If you or someone you know might be game to contribute, artistic credits will be listed and use is non-exclusionary. Please feel free to contact me at rutz@chatham.edu if you have any interest or inquiries.
