From a University of Nevada Press news release
Even in the arid Great Basin, lakes, rivers and streams support an astonishing variety of fish, important sources of food for Native Americans and later settlers. The landscape of the Great Basin contains clear mountain streams, Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, Mono Lake, Bear Lake and the Logan River. Renowned fish and fisheries in these waters include the Lahontan cutthroat trout and the cui-ui (both now endangered) and the Bonneville cutthroat trout.
In Fishes of the Great Basin: A Natural History, William F. Sigler and John W. Sigler provide an illustrated natural history of every fish found in these waters (indigenous as well as introduced), along with a discussion of threatened and endangered species, a glossary, a bibliography and an index. The new paperback edition includes an updated checklist of established species. First published in 1986, this comprehensive volume will be welcomed by naturalists, recreational anglers and anyone concerned with the natural resources of Nevada, Utah, Idaho and the other states of the Great Basin.
William F. Sigler (1909 – 1995) directed the Utah State University Wildlife Resource Department from 1950 to 1974. His son, John W. Sigler, consults on fisheries and environmental issues.
