Freshwater Fish

In the state of Alabama, there are about 300 species of freshwater fish. This is the richest freshwater fish community in the temperate zone. Fish are some very beautiful creatures. Below are some examples of freshwater fish that I have found out in the field at Cahaba River in Centreville, AL and Little Schultz Creek at Schultz Creek Baptist Church, also in Alabama.
