About this book

There are five groups of these little known Gastropods that spend their entire lives on or near the surface of the ocean. This book, based on 15 years study, gives a full account of their biology and ecology, and contains photos of many that have never been photographed alive in their natural environment before.

"Pelagic Snails has always been one of the most valued books in my collection."
– Sea Slug Forum
