Like its modern relatives, it probably preferred river and stream environments and occasionally wandered into Fossil Lake. It most likely died from starvation or suffocation because it could not spit out the Knightia.(Diplomystus is approximately 17 cm long.) National Park Service photo. School of Knightia eocaena: Knightia eocaena was a schooling fish. Mioplosus labracoides: The mouth of Mioplosus, an extinct perch-like fish, was lined with numerous tiny sharp teeth. During this period, most people lived a hunter-gatherer lifestyle and were, of necessity, constantly on the move.However, where there are early examples of permanent settlements (though not necessarily permanently occupied) such as those at Lepenski Vir, they are almost always associated with fishing as a major source of food.On the other hand, environmentalists have pressured state agencies to devote more attention and dollars to non-game species.As a result, most fish & wildlife agencies are on the prowl for new sources of funding. Fishing may include catching aquatic animals other than fish, such as molluscs, cephalopods, crustaceans, and echinoderms. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping.
Mooneye: Mooneyes are scarce in the Green River Formation. Diplomystus: This fossil fish was not found in a mass-mortality layer (beds that contain hundreds of fish on one surface), which suggests that it did not die in a catastrophe.
