Abstract

It is hoped that this article may be but a start toward supplying definite records on what fish exist today in our Iowa streams. Our old records for the state are good, but we need recent records on which to base our ecological studies and to establish a sound program of conservation. Some neighboring states have been very active in ichthyological surveys, which have to a great extent made such work here seem less urgent. Neither the excellency of work done thirty-five or forty years ago nor the completeness of work done recently near our borders affords us an excuse for neglecting this field. While waiting for a biological survey of the entire state to materialize small surveys from restricted regions may help pave the way for more extended studies.
