Title: BC Freshwater Fish Species ID Guidebook

A couple of months ago I mentioned that my good friends at UBC's Department of Zoology have published a guidebook on BC freshwater fish species for IDing. The guide includes photos of fish and notes on identification, biology and distribution. It's waterproof, so good to have with you when out fishing. You can now purchase them. The price of each guidebook (shipping included) for FWR members is $11. All proceeds are going to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Purchase link is at:

Patrick Tamkee, from UBC Zoology who's also a member of this forum, is responsible for mailing these out to you once purchased.

I don't imagine that would include shipping to the US?

Hi WAfishboy, unfortunately it's to Canada but I can have it shipped to the USA for just a bit more to help cover the postage. Would you still be interested if it would only cost a little more?

Thanks again Rod and FWR members, once again you guys have been a great help.  As Rod has mentioned, all proceeds go to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum.  You can read more about it here:

http://beatymuseum.ubc.ca/

It all goes back into educating people about freshwater fishes of BC, but also help support a bunch of the education programs they offer to the public.  If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me

Thanks everyone!

When you make the paypal payment, I get email notification and then I send out an email requesting the ship to name and address IF the paypal email doesn't have your address listed in it.  Sometimes the paypal email will give me an address and sometimes they don't.

I can ship it anywhere in Canada and USA. If in the USA, then the cost is just a tad bit more to cover the added shipping cost.

Thanks everyone for your continued support. I'm still shipping them out.

If anyone have any questions, please PM me.

On another note, for those who have gotten theirs, do you have any feedback?  We'd like to hear what you think and perhaps we can improve the booklet if needed. Thanks
