      Most people use common names when talking about aquarium fish. Unfortunately, common names can refer to more than one fish. When searching for information, it is preferable to use the scientific name, which is normally in : Shirlie Sharpe. Freshwater Fishing in Alaska. Alaska's freshwater fishing opportunities are seemingly endless. With literally dozens of species available across the state, there is almost no place in Alaska that does not offer good fishing opportunities at certain times of the year.

      Halibut are among the largest fish in the Pacific Northwest off British Columbia and the largest of all the flatfish. They can grow to more than 8 ft long and lbs. Locals call Halibut weighing in at more than pounds “Whales”, “Soakers”, or even “Barn Doors”, while smaller halibut, less than 20 pounds, are often called “Chickens”. The only member of Lotidae family which lives in freshwater. Crepuscular and nocturnal (Ref. ).Adults are found in well oxygenated flowing waters and large, deep lakes as well as large rivers with slow-moving current (Ref. , ).They occur from estuaries of large lowland rivers as well as from small mountain streams, preferring deep waters in summer (Ref. ).

      All continental freshwater and diadro-mous fishes in Canada, the United States, and Mexico were considered for inclusion on this list. Fishes from islands off the west coasts of Alaska and Canada were included since their faunas were derived from the North American continental or nearshore areas. Freshwater fishes of Hawaii listed by. Aggregate of freshwater fish found in the Arctic. Twenty-eight different species of fishes occur in Arctic lakes or rivers. A few of these species spend a portion of their life in the ocean, but so long as they return to breed in freshwater, they have been included here. Brian W. Coad, James D. Reist. ().

Cambridge Core - Ecology and Conservation - Conservation of Freshwater Fishes - edited by Gerard P. Closs. Most of Alaska’s abundant, remote, and predominantly pristine freshwater fish habitats are largely unexplored and undocumented.

Fishing in Alaska is the angler’s dream come true. Alaska’s oceans, rivers, and lakes are teeming with huge runs of record breaking Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Halibut and many other challenging sport fish.

The following is a list of common fish species known to occur in the lakes and rivers of Canada. The Dolly Varden – Salvelinus malma Walbaum present in North America in both the anadromous (seagoing) and the nonanadromous (freshwater resident) forms.

It is distributed throughout the polar regions and is the most northerly distributed of char and its closely related cousin, the Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma Walbaum).It was only in the s that taxonomists established the relationship.

Alaska's abundant, remote, and predominantly pristine freshwater fish habitats are largely unexplored and undocumented. To begin filling these vast information gaps, the Alaska Freshwater Fish Inventory Database (AFFID) houses freshwater fish (anadromous and resident)-occurrence data sets compiled from a variety of sources.
