Native Fish of Texas

Please join us for a presentation on the native fish of Texas by Nicholas Martinez.

Meeting will be: Wednesday,August 9, 2017 at 6:30 pm


You might be able to ID a Largemouth (or a Guadalupe) bass if you saw it. But what about a Stoneroller or a Gambusia? Texas has nearly 250 freshwater fish species but sadly many non-game fish are overlooked by both fishermen and naturalists alike. These fish may be tiny, but they play a huge ecological role in our water system.

Nic Martinez is a Refuge Technician at the Fort Worth Nature Center. He is also a member of the North American Native Fishes Association and has been an avid fisherman for many years. A lifelong ichthyophile, Nic caught his first fish when he was only 4 years old and would fish everyday if he could. He loves angling in the Trinity and in spots all over Texas. And he really knows his fish. We hope you can join us.
