These are some photos I took a few months back of some coldwater fry. All I know is that they're natives of Canada. Want my pictures labeled correctly, so, after failing at finding the fry names myself, I come to you, asking if you've ever seen these before.

I am not sure,but the first two pick look like some kind of trout fingerlings(fry). Do you have a location where they came from?

I think trout is right for at least one of the pictures, but these were taken back in August and I haven't looked at them until today, lol, so I honestly can't remember.

I find brook trout and lake trout as being in Newfoundland. http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=brook%20trout%20fingerlings&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi
That link is to photos of brook trout fingerlings.

You can also google trout fingerlings to see lots of pics.

You might want to PM Uncle Willie. He knows a ton about North American native fish.

I am almost positive that the middle one is a brook trout. I used to have one and it looked exactly like that.

Thank you all.

possibly sculpin? My google isn't cooperating so I'm just guessing. I don't think it's any kind of trout/salmon.

Agreed with Brook Trout. Other pic is a 3-spine stickleback.

they should make google goggles do exactly this, how cool would it be to take a pic of any fish and have google identify it

01-06-2010, 06:58 PM
Haha, while it would be cool, just the idea makes every nerdy-computer-loving bone in my body ache in protest.

lol well I don't think you have to worry, everytime I take a pic of my fish or turtles with googlegoggles it just comes up with landscape paintings with absolutely no fish or turtles lol so the technology apparently is not there yet. It is cool to watch it scan the photo though, kind of like star trek :hmm3grin2orange:

The 3rd picture is the kind of fish we have running through our creek, here in saskatchewan. It's a very small creek goes through our pasture. As a kid i would always catch them and put them in an ice cream pail for the day, and go let them go after supper. I would like to know what they are. We also have, Mudpuppy's in our dugout. There was thousands of them one year, but i think there's only a few left, Canadian Geese were eating the Mudpuppy's, they were all over the shores and they are hard as heck to catch! Here's a picture from google what they look like.

Correction, we have Brook Stickleback, and thousands of them.

the first one is a brook trout.....im almost 100% sure. The second one looks like a young rainbow trout. And the last one is a stickelback of some sort.

I agree, it's some sort of trout.
