About this book

This book is an eye-opening celebration of the wonderful diversity of animals that live in British seas, and the colourful and fascinating ways they go about their lives. With 500 new photographs, the 4th edition is by far the largest revision of Great British Marine Animals to date and see the number of pages increase from 320 to 432, while the fourth edition features 930 colour photos, versus 600 previously.

The wonderful diversity of animals that live in British seas are colourful, beautiful and have an amazing range of intriguing lifestyles. Even those we think of as familiar show surprising ways of getting food, defending themselves, reproducing and interacting with one another. Sea anemones seize their prey with superbly armed tentacles, crabs hide away to shed their armour and grow, starfish pull open mussels and some fish change sex when the situation demands.

Great British Marine Animals uses high-quality underwater photographs to both aid identification of a wide range of common animals, and to give an insight into their lives. It is written for anyone who loves the sea, wildlife or exploring our coast.

Customer Reviews


Paul Naylor has been captivated by the animals that live around the coast of Britain since he first donned a mask and snorkel on the Norfolk coast nearly fifty years ago. Ever since then, he has spent as much time as possible underwater, watching them go about their busy lives. Paul is passionate about sharing the beauty and fascination of the animals with as wide an audience as possible, through books, articles, talks, films, social media and TV, appearing with his footage on the BBC’s Coast, The One Show, Blue Planet UK and Countryfile. His photographs and video have been extensively used in campaigns for better protection and awareness of the UK’s amazing but too often under-appreciated marine life. Paul has a doctorate in marine biology and is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

Media reviews

Reviews of earlier editions:

"It is nothing less than a triumph: a gasp on every page [...] "
The Times

" [...] Naylor's photographs disclose a world that is intensely colourful not only in the visual sense, but also because of the behaviour of its varied inhabitants."
The Independent

" [...] photography is of a high quality, and the book benefits from large, exceptionally clear species-identification pictures. Above all, the author's obvious love for the subject shines through on every page. [...] If I were to recommend a single species guide to UK divers, this would be the one"
DIVE magazine

"A magical book crammed with colourful photography [...] "
The Teacher

" [...] Photos are all excellent, essential reading for anyone who wants a bit more than a name for a sea creature"
BBC Wildlife Magazine

" [...] highly recommended to all with an interest in our native marine life."
