The first in a series of five “Fish of Montana” fish posters produced by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will be available this spring. This poster features members of the pike, sturgeon, paddlefish, gar, catfish, freshwater drum and codfish families
Future posters in the series will be released every six months for the next two years. Eventually all 86 species of fish in Montana will have their 15 minutes of fame.
Images for the posters are by artist Joe Tomelleri, nationally recognized for his accurate fish reproductions. Included with each fish is information on average size, origin, scientific name, and Montana distribution.
The Fish of Montana series is part of a larger FWP effort to inform Montanans of the state’s unique fisheries resources. Posters are available at all FWP Regional Offices.
