Is this term actually longer than the fish itself?
reesetee commented on the word colorado pikeminnow
As with the Oldsquaw becoming the Long-Tailed Duck. :-)
The preferred term for the fish formally known as the squawfish.
A "correct usage" note from the Microsoft Encarta College dictionary:
Because the term "squaw" is now generally avoided, traditional names of plants and animals that contain it are also being shunned in favor of more scientific alternatives.
