This is the first comprehensive reference on New Zealand freshwater fishes since the publication of Bob McDowell’s field guide (Heinemann Reed) over 12 years ago.

This book includes all freshwater fishes, both introduced and native fishes, with useful identification charts at the back of the book for bullies and whitebait (diadromous galaxiids).

An extensive introduction includes highly topical coverage of freshwater ecology and conservation issues surrounding the quality of New Zealand s waterways, making this book an invaluable information resource.

In addition, keen anglers will be delighted to find full entries on trout, salmon, and rudd, including rare hybrids. And mini-maps provided for each entry give an indication of the distribution of each species throughout the country. New Holland Publishers.

This book is dedicated to Dr Bob McDowall (1939-2011), who made a phenomenal contribution to New Zealand and international ichthyology during the 48-year career.
