Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwestby Andy Lamb
Synopses & Reviews
Written by a marine biologist and illustrated in colour by a prizewinning underwater photographer, Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwest is the only comprehensive field guide to marine fishes of BC, Washington, and southern Alaska. It is also a useful reference for marine fishes of Oregon and Northern California.
Each fish is identified by its common name, and is illustrated with a full-colour photograph and labelled sketch. Special sections present catching tips for anglers and commercial fishermen; location hints for divers, beachcombers, and pleasure boaters; and cooking ideas for seafood gourmets. The information included in these sections provides a brief but detailed description of each fish's habitat, physical characteristics and behaviour - everything that a fisherman or an amateur naturalist needs to know!
Now in its eighth printing! Over 33,000 copies sold.
"If you are a fisherman, a diver or a naturalist, this is the book for you. Entertainly readable, the text succeeds in providing easy and accurate information."
