*These baby fish from Barkley Sound, British Columbia were taken and observed by a series of cruises planned and designed by Dr. Daniel J. Faber and conducted by John Dobrocky, Dobrocky Seatech, Ltd., Victoria, British Columbia. The details of the contract were negotiated on John's kitchen table when John first started his company, Dobrocky Seatech, Ltd. After the specimens were collected, Sally Richardson kindly helped with problem identifications. Sally Gadd, an illustrator, in collaboration with Dr. Daniel J. Faber, carefully illustrated these baby fish from Barkley Sound with a black pen on drawing paper; then Darin Jay Faber, a graphic designer, digitized these drawings with a Macintosh (TM) computer using the program Photoshop (TM). The original black and white drawings are being stored away from light in a museum-type black box. The actual specimens illustrated in this Web site were lost during moving operations within the National Museum of Natural Sciences. The illustrations of these larval fish from Barkley Sound, as shown in this Web site, were drawn with funds from the National Museum of Natural Sciences (now known as the Canadian Museum of Nature), Government of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario. The early beginnings of the descriptions of North Pacific Ocean larval fish began with Sally Richardson's several publications from the 1980's. The identifications of these illustrations from Barkley Sound are tentative, but were checked with Matarese et al. (1989). The common names, scientific names and describers of fish from Barkley Sound follow: J.L. Hart. Pacific Fishes of Canada and Matarese et al. 1989. Laboratory Guide to Early Life History Stages of Northeast Pacific Fishes. Much of the information in this Web site was obtained from published and unpublished studies (Ref. 01a, 18, 26, and 36).
