About this book

This guide helps identify squids and octopods from the high eastern North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. These regions have been difficult to sample due to rough seas, leaving the cephalopod fauna poorly unknown until now. A key to 44 species is included, and the book is amply illustrated.

This valuable field guide to cephalopods is essential for anyone spending time at sea in the northeast Pacific. Often cephalopod discoveries are lost when rare species or life-history stages are not recognized. This guide should eliminate that problem and will enlighten readers on the ecology, distribution and identification of all known species from the region. Dr Richard E Young, Dept of Oceanography, Univ of Hawaii.
