[Killietalk] RE: Killietalk Digest, Vol 10, Issue 92 (RE: Dauphin Island)
Without checking the thread let me start by saying Rodney Harper collected a
lot of killies from the area when he lived in Bayou La Battre and sent them
all over the US and around the world. Around Dauphin Island Rodney
collected a very olorful variety of Adinia xenica. Other salt/brackish
water fish from the area are Fund. similus and grandis, Cyp. variegatus and
Lucania parva. A good place to collect them is near the mouth of the Dog
RIver. You should also find Fund. jenkinsi. Rodney also collected Fund.
notti from the fresh water streams. There is also a wierd form of
notti/blairei near Theodore. If you collect in the area be wary of snakes,
the area supports a healthy population of water moccasins.
You might also see if you can track down Tim Wolfe, he is a NANFA member and
from Theodore. Rodney left the area several years ago and hasn't been heard
from for quite a while.

In April there was a thread about Dauphin Island. Are there any other native
fish in the Gulf Shores area?
