James Prosek (born May 23, 1975) is an American artist, writer and naturalist. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, he is a graduate of Yale University.

Prosek published his first book in 1996 while studying at Yale. Trout: An Illustrated History included watercolors of seventy species, subspecies, and strains of trout in North America. His second trout book, Trout of the World is a collection of one hundred watercolors of native trout from Europe, Asia and North Africa. His work has been featured in exhibitions at Wajahat Ingrao, Gerald Peters Gallery and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York City, the Westport Arts Center and Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Connecticut, and the Dumbo Arts Center in Brooklyn. His first solo museum exhibition, Life & Death - A Visual Taxonomy, was at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT in 2008.

In 2003, Prosek won a Peabody Award for his documentary on seventeenth-century author and angler Izaak Walton and his book The Complete Angler. Prosek is also a fellow of the Vermont Studio Center, and a visiting artist for the Yale Summer School of Art. In 2007 he published the novel The Day My Mother Left, and his book, Eels: An Exploration of the World's Most Amazing and Mysterious Fish will be published by HarperCollins in September 2010.

In 2004 he co-founded a conservation initiative with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard called World Trout which raises money for coldwater habitat conservation. He has written for the New York Times and National Geographic Magazine.
