This waterproof book contains photos and descriptions of more than 400 marine species covering the eastern Bering Sea, central Aleutian Islands, western and central Gulf of Alaska and waters north of Norton Sound and in southeastern Alaska.
Susan C. Byersdorfer and Leslie J. Watson have studied Alaska wildlife for several decades.
This fully illustrated book is a comprehensive field guide to more than four hundred marine species found in Alaska waters. Its primary geographic range is the Bering Sea, central Aleutian Islands, and the western and central Gulf of Alaska, but it also includes waters north of Norton Sound and those of southeastern Alaska. Designed for use in the field--as its waterproof binding and paper attest--it will be indispensable for fishermen, teachers, and conservation officials.--Ian Paulsen, "Guardian"
