Inland Fishes of Rhode Island

The Division of Fish and Wildlife is pleased to announce the publication of the Inland Fishes of Rhode Island.

This publication describes more than 70 fishes found in the fresh and brackish waters of Rhode Island. Filled with beautiful color and black and white scientific illustrations, each fish is addressed with a detailed description and color location map. Included are the variety of freshwater habitats found in Rhode Island along with the methodology used to carry out the field work that has led to this publication.

Alan D. Libby is a Principal Freshwater Biologist and has worked for the Rhode Island Division of Fish and Wildlife for over 26 years. This definitive work is the culmination of 15 years of surveying the inland fishes of the state. Alan surveyed over 377 pond and stream locations throughout Rhode Island, many sampled multiple times over the years.
