About this book

The most comprehensive book about Florida's marine fishes ever produced, Marine Fishes of Florida includes hundreds of photographs and descriptions of species you'll encounter – plus many that are rare – when diving, snorkeling, kayaking, or fishing. Coverage includes both the Atlantic and Gulf coastline, from habitats near the shore to deeper waters. Fishes found in coastal rivers and other brackish waters are fully represented, as are offshore species that venture into Florida's waters often enough to be called "occasional visitors."

David B. Snyder and George H. Burgess intertwine personal observations with results from research studies to provide accurate – often surprising – details. The result is a set of beautifully succinct identification descriptions coupled with information about each species' natural history.

From the largest sharks to the smallest cryptic gobies, from homely toadfishes to the spectacularly colored reef fishes, Marine Fishes of Florida is certain to help you better understand the fish you've seen or hooked.
