This comprehensive reference details the life history and ecology of the fish species that occupy the estuarine and coastal habitats along the eastern United States and Canada. The authors draw on their own studies and previously published research to summarize and synthesize all the known facts about the ecology of 93 species of fish that inhabit the temperate waters of the Western Atlantic.

The species accounts include complete information about each fish's distribution, habitat use, reproduction, development, migratory patterns, prey and predators and other natural enemies. The species accounts are illustrated and include life-cycle calendars, tables and charts highlighting key information.

No one else could have written this book. I am amazed by the depth and range of knowledge demonstrated. This synthesis is a major contribution to estuarine fish studies. - David H. Secor, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science"
