Pharyngeal arches from fish collected in Trinity River @ Rt. 3278, just below Lake Livingston. Arch on left is missing the two outer teeth. One on right is missing one tooth each row.


The best location I found for collecting Silverband Shiner is in the Trinity River just below Lake Livingston. In an area where a seep was entering the river, I caught approximately thirty of them in a few minutes. A couple throws of the cast net yielded approximately 10 individuals each. I also collected roughly 20 N. Shumardi in the Navasota River including both the Hwy 6 and Hwy 30 crossings. At most roughly three individuals were caught in a single throw of the cast net. Silverband Shiners were outnumbered considerably by Red Shiners at this location.
