This colorful fish chromolithograph is from Investigations of the Aquatic Resources and Fisheries of Porto Rico (Puerto Rico). The work was authored by Barton Warren Evermann & the United States Fish Commission in 1900 in Washington, DC. The plates were printed by Julius Bien and are by Charles Bradford Hudson and A. H. Baldwin.
The work was based on specimens collected by the United States Fish Commission. The commission “launched and carried out the first sustained study of marine biology in the United States. It was instrumental in the artificial propagation of fish, thus increasing the country’s fish resources, and concentrating attention on the preservation of natural resources.” (Archives Center of the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History)
