Abstract

Department of Zoology University of Montana Missoula, MT 59812, U S A . “I love any discourse of rivers, and fish, and fishing.” Izaak Walton The CompZeat Angler The following three papers were presented at a symposium on the conservation biology of fishes at the Society for Conservation Biology meeting in June of last year. The first paper presents problems special to species living in rivers; the second paper discusses desert fishes; and the final paper considers one of the most popular sport fishes of North America, the cutthroat trout. A fourth paper on the genetics of exploitation in rockfishes was presented at the symposium by Keith Nelson but is not included in this issue. Three or four papers are obviously not sufficient to provide a comprehensive overview of the conservation of a taxon with over 20,000 species that last shared a common evolutionary ancestor some 400 million years ago (Mayr 1969). Those interested in broader aspects of fish conservation may consult the following recent publications (FAOKJNEP 1981; Fetterolf 1981; Meffe 1987; Ono, Williams, 81 Wagner 1983; Ryman 1981).
