HOW TO NEGOTIATE THROUGH THESE GALLERY PAGES

This map of Canada, below, shows the three areas covered in this Web site, "THE BABY FISHES OF CANADA". They include: Barkley Sound, British Columbia; Freshwater Lakes in southern Ontario; and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the Maritime region. If you want, for example, to view baby fish from freshwater lakes, select Freshwater Lakes, then you may select various species of fish that live in freshwater lakes. If you select an image of one species from Freshwater Lakes, you may then go to a page which shows a lateral view of the species' baby, the common and scientific name of the species, and a brief description of the early life of the species. By selecting an image on the page, you will go to the next page which shows three views of the illustrations available for that species, as well as data concerning the collection of the specimens which are illustrated. Finally, by selecting an image on the page, you may see the illustration in an enlarged format. It is here that you may view the detailed and intricate melanophore patterns for any particular species. Selections other than Freshwater Lakes are Barkley Sound (Pacific Ocean) and Gulf of St. Lawrence (Atlantic Ocean).
