Product Overview

The only comprehensive field guide to the Chesapeakes fishes, this book is an indispensable resource for both anglers and students of the Bay. Vivid illustrations by Val Kells complement the expertise of researchers Edward O. Murdy and John A. Musick. They describe fishes that inhabit waters ranging from low-salinity estuaries to the point where the Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Key features of this field guide include
full-color illustrations of more than 200 species
text that is presented adjacent to illustrations for easy reference
detailed descriptions of physical characteristics, range, occurrence in the Bay, reproduction, diet, and statistics from fisheries research
spot illustrations that highlight critical features of certain fish
illustrations of juveniles when they look different from adults
appendices that include identification keys

Formatted as a compact field guide for students, scientists, researchers, and fishermen, Field Guide to Fishes of the Chesapeake Bay should be a standard passenger on any boat that plies the Chesapeakes waters.
