This pane of five colorful stamps was issued in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the National Wildlife Federation. The stamps depict five fish common to U.S. waters. The Atlantic cod and the bluefin tuna are caught primarily for commercial use. The Muskellunge, largemouth bass, and the catfish are all freshwater species popular in sport fishing.
