Welcome to Fishmap.org.
My name is Ryan Crutchfield and I am an angler, explorer,
archaeologist, and software architect. I initially built this
site as a tool to better understand the fish species around me and then in June of 2013 I decided to publish it online for
I live in Tampa Bay, Florida and my goal is to catch, photograph, and
release as many fish species as I can
- I have caught 240 species to date. I love nature, adventure
and exploring; most free hours are spent hiking, kayaking, fishing and taking photos.
I am a member and volunteer of Tampa Bay Watch
I have a BA in Anthropology from Auburn University and an MA in Archaeology from the University of Alabama, but I currently spend
my time working in information technology programming and architecting logistics, warehouse, and order management systems. I have
worked with most web based programming languages and databases; my most recent work has been with real time analytics using Node.js.
I hope some of you find the site useful and feel free to contact me
with questions or comments. I would
love to hear how people are using the site and any feedback you have.
