in the Aleutian Islands and found that smaller Pacific ocean perch ([less than or equal to] 25 cm, Reuter (2)) inhabited shallower water (<150 m) than that inhabited by larger individuals, and they further suggested that large catches (>100 kg/ha) could be affiliated with zones of increased productivity and prey availability.
Knowledge of the ichthyofauna
of the region greatly increased after 1944 when Carl L.
The resulting paper (Evermann and Rutter, 1895) is a useful compendium of what was known to that time about the taxonomy and ecology of the unique fish fauna of the Colorado River, an environment whose ichthyofauna
has greatly changed over the past century owing to a series of major dams and the widespread introduction of dozens of exotic fish species (Minckley, 1973; Minckley and Deacon, 1991).
A distinguishing feature of the ichthyofauna
of this region is the relative high degree of conservatism of external morphology in spite of substantial genetic divergence (Hrbek and Meyer 2003; Teimori et al.

While mammalian, plant and insect remains from the Stewart Valley sediments have been extensively studied, the ichthyofauna
