Description

Winner of the Best Illustrated Book of the Year Award at the 2004 Manitoba Writing and Publishing Awards.

Winner of the 2004 Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher.

Clearly written and handsomely illustrated, this book is a comprehensive and definitive guide to all 95 of Manitoba's freshwater fish species. With its many lakes and rivers, Manitoba has Canada's third most diverse freshwater fish fauna, ranging from the sturgeon, goldeye, and catfish in the province's south, to Arctic char and Arctic grayling in the northern rivers that feed into Hudson Bay.

This book gives all readers an easy-to-use guide to the province's varied fish fauna. Detailed identification keys and over 150 colour photographs enable both amateurs and specialists to recognize any fish found in Manitoba's waters. Fish are grouped by order and family, and colour-coded for fast reference. Each fish is described in detail, including its physical characteristics, spawning and feeding habits, distribution, habitat, ecological role, and economic importance.
