Fish of the Rappahannock River

An Environmental Species Documentary

Welcome to the Fish of the Rappahannock River Environmental Species Documentary.  What follows is a journey along the banks of Virginia’s longest and most historical river, flowing through my hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia.  Originating from a small trickle in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the river spans eastward in a 195 mile path to the Chesapeake Bay, drawing water from  2848 square feet of surrounding watershed.  Historically known as the dividing line between the northern states and the southern states during the United States’ Civil War, this river serves as home to a multitude of fish and other aquatic organisms that support numerous food webs across the sate and into the Chesapeake Bay.
