Fishin' for a Name

Introduction: Keys are tools that provide a systematic (step-by-step) way to identify plants and animals. A series of choices are made based on the organism's characteristics to discover its identity. This fish key is based on body shape and physical features. It is a nontraditional key that is designed to help you identify a few of the fish that you may find in the aquatic habitats of Hard Bargain Farm Environmental Center.
