Catalog of U.S. Government Publications - Search the name of the species.
NOTE: Documents that government agencies produce are ruled by laws, and the research is focused on the exact requirements in those laws, so they are sometimes difficult to understand without knowing what laws they are governed by.
A search can produce many documents - narrow your results with other terms, such as habitat or biology.
Two series of reports - Essential Fish Habitat Source Documents and Species Profiles - give basic biological information on a species. They cover different species with some overlap, but not all species! They tend to be commercially important ones.
