Redescription of the Tyee Sucker, Catostomus tsiltcoosensis (Catostomidae
Biology of the chestnut lamprey.--Electrofishing surveys in the Little Elkhart River in August 2013 indicated that attached chestnut lampreys and lamprey marks were common on the larger fishes at each of three sites, including trout (Salmonidae), suckers (Catostomidae
), and carp (Cyprinidae).
Growth, spawning, preparedness, and diet of Cycleptus meridionalis (Catostomidae
The Poeciliidae, Esocidae, Ictaluridae, Catostomidae
, Percidae and the Amiidae had one species each.
(17.) This list did not include species of fish from the sucker family (Catostomidae
) and catfish family (Ictaluridae).
Despite reasonably high species diversity, stream fish assemblages in the Northern Hemisphere typically are dominated by members of a few families (e.g., Cyprinidae, Percidae, Cottidae, Salmonidae, and Catostomidae
is a moderately diverse family (70 species in the U.S.; Nelson et al., 2004) of lacustrine and riverine fishes distributed widely throughout North America (Lee et al., 1980; Scott and Crossman, 1998).
Other species of fish identified in this study included members of the Lepisosteidae and Catostomidae
that seem too large to have been consumed by any means other than scavenging.

Abstract.--New geographic distribution records are documented for 17 taxa of Arkansas fishes within seven families (Atherinopsidae, Catostomidae
, Cyprinidae, Fundulidae, Lepisosteidae, Percidae, Petromyzontidae) from 15 counties of the central and northern portions of the state.
(1997, Table 4) all but four (Esox sp., Aplodinotus sp., Catostomidae
, and Microtus pennsylvanicus) of the sixteen vertebrate taxa from this site had not been reported previously from the Pleistocene of Michigan.
Four families of fishes: Catostomidae
, Esocidae, Fundulidae, and Poeciliidae were negatively correlated with Plains Topminnow persistence throughout Nebraska (Table 1).
