Watercolor collection of the Danish freshwater fish

Project and watercolours by Frits Ahlefeldt

A project to sketch up the Danish freshwater fish to help show the fish dimension in why we need to work hard to protect our streams, rivers and lakes. I realized there are many more fish species ( +30 ) than I first thought. Here are the fish species I have sketched up in watercolor so far:
