About this book

Hidden below the surface of the temperate Cornish seas is an amazing array of colourful marine life, whose diversity challenges that of a tropical reef. Indeed, many of our species are closely related to those in warm waters, for the Gulf Stream divides around the peninsula, bringing warmer, clearer waters that propagate a diversity of marine life not generally found elsewhere around the UK's coastline. A multitude of invertebrate species, including anemones, soft and stony corals, and even sea fans more common on coral reefs, paint the rocks with carptes of colour, and fish life is profuse, with shoals of bass and mackerel, wrasse, flatfish, blennies, scorpion fish, tope, sharks, and visitors from warmer, Southern waters. In summer we see trigger fish, sun fish, basking sharks, and even leatherback turtles.

In Beneath Cornish Seas, Mark Webster's stunning underwater photographs give an insight into the life in our rock pools, and below the waves. It will appeal to snorkellers, divers, underwater photographers and people with a passion for marine life and natural history, as well as anyone who is simply curious to know about life beneath the sea.
