"A Field Guide to Coastal Fishes will become my 'go-to' reference book. This book is a 'must have' item for anyone who works with or has an interest in fish, fishing, and the marine environment.  After seeing this book, I've discovered I need two copies: one for my office and one for my boat!"

Comprehensive and compact, "Maine to Texas" is a 448-page guide with 1,079 full color illustrations and descriptions of over 1,006 marine and brackish water species. Its new companion, "Alaska to California," fills 374 pages with over 950 illustrations of almost 700 coastal species.

These are the first field guides of their kind to be entirely illustrated in full color. Illustrations are large and meticulously researched. Descriptions are concise, accurate, and provide information about features, habitat, and biology. 

Noted marine science illustrator Kells and ichthyologist Carpenter (biological sciences, Old Dominion U., Norfolk, VA) provide an up-to-date identification guide to the fishes that inhabit the marine and brackish waters of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Following an introductory overview of the evolution, classification, and features of fishes, and a section describing 76 families, well-illustrated species accounts describe the biology, ecology, and behavior of 937 species from Atlantic hagfish to semi-tropical sharks. The guide includes a color map, glossary, and additional resources.
