In 1927, George E. Potter and David T. Jones recorded in volumes, thirty-four proceedings of the Iowa Academy of Science, a compilation and revision of the fish records published for Iowa. In this article all of the available published records for Iowa fish were brought together, and species lists, with locality records and bibliography were recorded together with the tracing of any synonymy through all the sources; some interpretations were made. The Potter and Jones list presented one hundred and twenty-seven recognized species with a hypothetical list including twenty-one species and sub-species. This list has been of appreciable benefit to students of Ichthyology. However, from this point it seems desirable to here record the 1936 list of Iowa fishes as shown in the writer's report in May of the above year, with the subsequent additions to date as a basis for the monograph to be published upon the completion of the state-wide survey now in progress.
