About this book

The huge tidal range, and the influence of the Gulf Stream mean that the seas surrounding the Channel Islands are rich in marine life, both in terms of diversity of species and number of individuals.
`Sue (Daly) reveals the charms of the Candy Striped Flatworm, the Teddy Bear Crab and the Little Cuttle, who emits such perfect ink rings, and she tells of the sexlives of seahares and nudibranchs and the fatherly attitudes of seahorses and pipefish...but this is much more than an identification guide. This book will be an inspiration to anyone attracted to the sea - divers, snorkellers, fishermen, rock poolers and beach walkers, and to all who want to protect and nurture the natural heritage of the Channel Islands.' Lee Durrell, Honorary Director of the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust
