I've been talking to Pam Fuller of the USGS. Pam maintains the
Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) web site. She is also co-author of the
new AFS book Nonindigenous Fishes Introduced into the Inland Waters of the
United States. It's at I
assume you've seen the NAS website, which is at

She wants our help verifying and/or correcting her fish distribution maps.
If you can help by being a reviewer or contributor please contact me. This
is something that those of you who collect fish can be a big help with. I
will head this up. The basic maps are on the website, but as you can see
below, she keeps more detailed records and is prepared to provide us with
these records to work with.

Please help. Thanks.
