About this book

With 1,700 superb colour photographs of over 1,400 species, Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest: A Photographic Encyclopedia of Invertebrates, Seaweeds and Selected Fishes is the most comprehensive collection of photographs of Pacific Northwest marine life ever published. It is designed to allow the reader to recognize virtually any coastal organism that might be encountered from southern Alaska to southern Oregon-from sea lettuces and feather boa kelp through to the leopard ribbon worm, Pacific red octopus, spiny-thigh sea spider and gutless awning-clam. Each species is identified with photographs and includes a description with information on range, habitat, appearance and behaviour.

Andy Lamb and Bernard Hanby have spent most of their lifetimes studying and recording Pacific Northwest marine life and have completed over 4,000 scuba dives between them. Some of the species included in this volume have never been featured in print before. Colour-coded for quick reference and including a glossary and full index, Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest is a must-have for serious biologists, scuba divers, beachcombers or anyone interested in marine life and beautiful underwater photography.

It's unlikely that a diver, beachcomber, or intertidal explorer in the Pacific Northwest will find a marine plant or animal that is not covered in this work.
--Jennifer Ruesink and Alan Trimble, Department of Biology, University of Washington, "Discovery"

""Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest" is, if I may say, "Biblio extraordinaria". Highly recommended."
--Catherine Dook, "Boat Journal"

"This volume should be on every coffee table in the province. The most comprehensive photographic collection of Pacific Northwest marine life ever published."
--Christine Scott, "North Island MidWeek"
