An article on the conservation status of 662 species of southeast fishes has
just appeared in the October issue of Fisheries, however you do not have to be
an American Fisheries Society member to read it. A pdf of the entire article --
including the excellent color photos -- is available at:

According to the article, "The trend for fishes in the southern United States is
clear; jeopardized fishes are successfully being moved from the vulnerable
category to that of imminent threat of extinction."

Required reading for any native fish enthusiast.
