Fishing for a Name

Welcome to the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s interactive fish identification tool.
Keys are tools that provide a systematic (step-by-step) way to identify plants and animals. During this activity, you will discover an organism’s identity by making a series of choices based on the characteristics you observe. This fish key is based on body shape and physical features and will help you identify a few of the fish that you may find in the aquatic habitats surrounding our environmental education campus.


Click on a numbered circle in the picture below to begin classifying that fish. This activity is completed when you have identified all 10 fish in the habitat.
