Fishes of Georgia Atlas


Until 2009, there was no comprehensive and up-to-date information available on Georgia’s exceptionally rich fish fauna. To fill that void, The Fishes of Georgia Atlas went online in March 2009 at http://fishesofgeorgia.uga.edu. The site features range maps and color photographs for 337 coastal and freshwater fish species that are known from Georgia waters.

Developing this site required combining large amounts of data from various sources, including databases maintained by the Nongame Conservation Section, the DNR Stream Survey Team and the Georgia Museum of Natural History. For each species, distribution maps were checked for accuracy and museum specimens re-examined or re-identified when necessary.

This website is dynamic, with new information added as it becomes available. The goal: Provide updated distributional information on Georgia’s fishes to anglers, scientists, conservationists, educators and others.
