I agree.. Popular mechanics? but it was some sort of notice...
good thing I included a disclaimer...
On another list, I just had an exchange with a fellow who was
relying on the "Field and Stream" magazine web sight for taxonomy....
came up with Salmo gairdneri for rainbow trout, and O. mykiss for a
steelhead.... isshh.... good discussion, though
BTW, I find it hard to occasion across current fisheries
(taxonomy, genetics and others) information since I am no longer in
school, pouring over journals...
Are there any ichthyologists or fisheries biologists out there who can
recommend a decent periodical for keeping up to date with this stuff?
Behavior and natural history would be another area of fisheries
Stizostedion back to Zander ? yow!! :^)
