The Species Accounts 
Key to the Distribution Maps 
From 1958 through 1978, 1,882 collections of fish specimens were made in
Wis- 
consin waters by me, by student teams under my direction, by cooperating
per- 
sonnel from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and by cooperat-
ing commercial fishermen. The specimens from these collections were examined
by me, and some were placed in the Museum of Natural History-Stevens Point
(UWSP). The locations of these collections are indicated by black dots on
the map 
of the fish collection stations and on the Wisconsin fish distribution maps
ac- 
companying each species account. Broadly overlapping symbols are omitted,
and no attempt has been made to indicate the numerous repeat collections
made 
at several collection sites. 
  The black triangles on the distribution maps accompanying the species ac-
counts represent records from the Wisconsin Fish Distribution Study (1974-1979)
of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. They indicate spot loca-
tions given by computer printout data that were made available to me by the
study-including the data for all species of fish from the Study's 1974 and
1975 
collections, and data for rare and endangered species from the 1974 through
1978 collections. The fish from the Wisconsin Fish Distribution Study have
been 
deposited in the Milwaukee Public Museum. I have examined and verified a
number of specimens from these collections. 
  The small open circles on the species distribution maps represent reports
given 
in the literature and unverifiable reports from many sources. The latter
were 
mainly published and unpublished data from Marlin Johnson (UW-Waukesha) 
and from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, including DNR dis-
trict files, fish research reports, fish management reports, technical bulletins,
and surface water resources reports. Surface water resources reports frequently
