Alberta's diverse game fish are a source of enjoyment for hundreds of thousands of anglers each year. Since different regulations
apply to different species, it's important to know how to tell the different species apart. Some of the fish you catch you
may have to release, and others may have certain restrictions on them, such as catch and size limits. You can identify the
various species by their distinguishing characteristics.
