See below for questions from webpage visitor I already
pointed him to Charlie Nunziata and the Florida Collection Guide he and the
Suncoast Killifish Association created.

I have set up a fresh and saltwater aquarium at my wife's school, Alva Elementary in Lee county and I intend to keep native fish in both so the children can compare a fresh and saltwater enviorment. I need a book or publication to identify the freshwater fish of Florida. I saw 2 documents listed, A list of Fl. fish and their distribution by J.C. Briggs and A guide to the reptiles, amphibeans & freshwater fish of Fl. by A. Carr & C.J. Goin. I do not know how to obtain these guides. If you can give me any help it would be appreciated. If you know of other books that list the freshwater fish or aquatic plants of Fl. any information would be greatly appreciated. I am also trying to find some posters on native freshwater fish. I have been trying to obtain the poster "Florida Freshwater Fishes" by Duane Raven Jr. but have been unsuccessful, Florida Fish & game state they no longer carry this poster Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
