Fish of Alberta

 FISH ARE THE UNKNOWN DENIZENS OF THE DEEP, darting around lakeshore vegetation or larking about in fast-flowing rivers. We have 54 established fishes in Alberta, from the large Lake Sturgeon to the tiny Iowa Darter, and from the hardy Fathead Minnow to the sensitive Bull Trout. In this engaging book, illustrated throughout by nature artist Ian Sheldon, the life history of each species is described. Tips on how to identify and view these fishes are discussed, along with conservation issues and best sites for finding them. A size comparisons chart and species checklist are also included, as well as 11 more species in an appendix. Naturalists, students and avid anglers will appreciate this guide to fish-watching throughout the province.
