Additional resources

Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts - This is probably the single best source to search for information published since the 1970's about a species. It is available online via Wilson Library. From Western=s home page go to the library and then to online resources. - This is a huge database on more than 25,000 species of fish. - This is a search engine for information published by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. - This is a search engine for scientific information published by the Canadian government including the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. - This is the home page for the American Fisheries Society, the largest scientific organization concerning fish and fisheries.
