Watercolor collection of the Danish freshwater fish

Project and watercolours by Frits Ahlefeldt

A public good project – where I work to describe and sketch up the Danish freshwater fish to help show why we need to protect streams, rivers and lakes in Denmark. There are +30 freshwater species in Denmark. Here are the fish species I have sketched up in watercolor so far – ( it is a work in progress, still need to do better watercolors of some of the freshwater fish here) :

And here are all fish as single images:
