Date: 1977

 Thirty-four species of non-salmonid fishes were determined to be of recreational importance in Puget Sound, Washington.  A review of the literature provided such information as local names, physical features used in their recognition, world and Washington state distribution, habitat, utilization, and size.  Additional information on Puget Sound distribution, eating qualities, and baits and lures were gathered during NMFS Marine Recreational Fisheries surveys (1973-1976) and was added to provide a handy recreational marine fishery resource guide.
