Description

March 2018: Price reduced 50% because I need to get the remaining copies out of my office.
------------ ------------ ------------ ------------
I designed the t-shirt for the 2017 North American Native Fishes Association convention in Missouri (June 8-13). The t-shirt can be purchased from the NANFA website (nanfa.org). I also printed a small number of posters to sell.

These are professionally printed on archival stock with archival inks.
They measure 15.8 inches x 24 inches.
The images here are photos of one of the actual prints.

25% of the proceeds from these will be donated to NANFA. (I do not receive any compensation for the design or sale of the shirts, but I encourage everyone to get at least one.)

Framed prints are available for an additional $60, which should cover the frame, glass, backing and extra shipping costs. I'll post a photo when the framing supplies arrive.

The Blue Sucker (Cycleptus elongatus), is a fish with strong ties to Missouri. Until at least the 1920s it was usually known in the literature as the Missouri Sucker (for more on this, see my article on the history of the Blue Sucker's names at http://moxostoma.com/bluesuckernames/. It is a big river fish and Missouri is home to the two biggest rivers of North America. Further, it is an under-appreciated but historically and biologically important native species.
I based the two main fish in the design on photos I took while electrofishing on the Wisconsin River with Wisconsin DNR in 2013. I think I temporarily damaged my spine by spending hours hunched at my desk drawing each scale.
The two silhouettes in the background are based on early published Blue Sucker drawings. On the left is an 1884 illustration (of a specimen in the Smithsonian) that was copied in most publications for the next several
decades. The skinny one on the right is based on the earliest Blue Sucker image that exists, drawn by LeSueur and published with his original description of the species (as Catostomus elongatus) in 1817.
