  Thanks,  Dave....  

    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!!  :^)
