About this book

This book is the second of two volumes that cover the entire fish fauna of the Gulf of Mexico. It includes the orders Scorpaeniformes, Perciformes, Pleuronectiformes, and Tetraodontiformes. Keys and descriptions are provided for the families, which are arranged phylogenetically, and for the species, which are arranged alphabetically, described (including distribution and life history), and distinguished from similar species. All but a few species are illustrated. The volume also includes a biogeographical synopsis of the fishes of the Gulf of Mexico.

From reviews of Volume 1: "[This] book is, by far, the best and most complete reference on Gulf of Mexico fishes to date. With the completion of a second volume, it will stand as the benchmark for this region for many years to come... This reference is a must for anyone working with Gulf of Mexico fishes." Quarterly Review of Biology "At long last, the definitive guide to the fishes of the Gulf of Mexico has arrived... It should be considered an essential addition to libraries at marine labs, natural history museums, fish collections, consulting firms, and any teaching or research facility or vessel where there is a need to identify fishes from the Gulf of Mexico. Without doubt, there will be many ichthyologists, fishery biologists, and other marine scientists and technicians eagerly awaiting the arrival of Volume 2." Copeia
