July 2020 - December 2023
- West Virginia Division of Natural Resources
A distributional atlas and identification guide to West Virginia's fishes will benefit federal and state agencies, anglers, and the general public in understanding the distribution, habitat, and the conservation needs and concerns of each fish species found within West Virginia. The project is a collaborative effort of the USGS West Virginia Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR). Information provided in this book will aid WVDNR in the management of sportfishes and non-game fishes and their associated habitats and resources.
