About the Artist
Duane Raver Jr. grew up in central Iowa where he came to love the outdoors and wildlife. Raver soon found that he enjoyed drawing and painting, and many of the notes and sketches he uses today date from his early work in the 1940s.

He earned a degree in Fishery Management from Iowa State University in 1949, and was employed as a fishery biologist by the N. C. Wildlife Resources Commission in 1950. Artwork remained an important part of his life, and he contributed many illustrations to the monthly publication, Wildlife in North Carolina, including more than 200 cover illustrations. Raver joined the staff of the magazine in 1960, eventually serving as editor, before retiring in 1979.

He continues to create wildlife artwork at his home in Garner, N.C.

About the Prints
Print production was made possible by the N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission to commemorate the launch of the state's first Coastal Recreational Fishing License and to raise funds to help conserve and protect marine resources.

The Conservation Fund Committee decided it was fitting for the red drum, North Carolina's state saltwater fish, to serve as the subject for the print.

To learn more about the Conservation Fund or to contribute, contact the Division of Marine Fisheries administrative services office at 800-682-2632 or 252-726-7021.

Two varieties of prints are available on heavy art-quality paper:
Standard print: 12"x14" in a series of 3,000 signed and numbered
Artist's Proof:  12"x14" in a series of 150 signed and numbered

About the Marine Fisheries Commission
North Carolina saltwater fisheries rules and regulations are established by the nine-member Marine Fisheries Commission. The makeup of the commission and its advisory committees is equally divided between regions and recreational and commercial user groups. Oversight comes from the General Assembly, the Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and the North Carolina Rules Review Commission to guarantee policies and regulations are procedurally and technically sound.
