Description
Comments on faunal list The list was assembled mainly from Hart (1973: Pacific fishes of Canada; Ref. 6885). Some additions were taken from McAllister (1990: A list of the fishes of Canada; Ref. 11980) and Favaro et al. (2010: Ref. 91783), and other primary literature. The coastal fishes were checked against Lamb & Edgell (2010: Coastal fishes of the Pacific Northwest; Ref. 94401).
