Book Description

Sept. 1 2006
This book is a given for recreational and commercial fishermen as well as anyone who loves the outdoors! Since most anglers identify their fish by reviewing illustrations rather than using scientific keys, the authors have succeeded in making fishing easier by providing superb illustrations and detailed diagnostics for fish identification. A valuable, one-stop reference tool for everyday anglers, fisheries experts, biologists, and outdoors writers, this guide includes intensively researched information on 207 species of saltwater fish, essential data on each species' habitat, identification, typical size, and food value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of its Kind Oct. 18 2009
By Lisa H. Gros - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
One of the best fish identification and biology books I've used. The superb images by Raver are much better for identification purposes than photographs, which almost always seem to have some obscured diagnostic features. They are not only accurate, but beautiful works of art. The text on each fish is informative, fun to read and useful to me in learning more about the fish that I pursue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed Nov. 20 2012
By M. Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is very detailed, and quite interesting to read. I would consider it a must have for most anglers, as I've been fishing on the gulf for many years and still catch a fish from time to time that I'm not quite sure what it is. This book will definitely help you know what you've caught and is laid out in an easy to understand format.
