Site #23: St. Johns River at US 17/FL 15, where a small inlet crosses
under the road
Species observed/collected included:
Marsh killifish (F. confluentus)
Golden topminnow (F. chrysotus)
Rainwater killifish (L. parva)
Bluefin killifish (L. goodei)
Least killifish (H. formosa)
E. mosquitofish (G. holbrooki)
Sailfin molly (P. latipinna)
Bluegill (L. macrochirus)
Finally, the weary wanderers had had enough, and decided to head for home.
What began as a neat idea turned out to be an incredible collecting trip
that provided 46 different freshwater fish species, 25 or so different
brackish species, and at least 4 exotics.
Dustin says, "I want to thank Fritz Rohde and Doug Dame for help planning
and guiding along the Santa Fe River, and Allen Boatman & the Suncoast
Killifish Society for all of their help and hospitality in the Tampa area.
I think we are all looking forward to doing this again sometime soon."
