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 The latter were mainly published and unpublished data from Marlin Johnson (UW-Waukesha) and from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, including DNR dis- trict files, fish research reports, fish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.
