BC Freshwater Fish Species ID Guidebook
« on: September 13, 2016, 10:37:53 AM »



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!

So I mailed out everyone's order who has sent payment from yesterday and today.  Thanks everyone for your support.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.  There are still lots available.

For those who live near or work at UBC, we can meet there during the weekday at UBC as well if you want to pick it up in person. Thanks
