HASH(0x9c16060c) out of 5 stars Excellent text 8 Sept. 2009
By Sleepypenguin45 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had the very fortunate opportunity to take Dr. Moyle's ichthyology class at UC Davis. We used this book as our text. The book was very helpful, and well explained. Moyle and Cech go into a great amount of detail in this text, and yet convey it in a straightforward and understandable way.

HASH(0x9cac08a0) out of 5 stars There is more out there 2 Jan. 2013
By Dr. Fish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent text for upper-division fisheries and wildlife students. It is nicely organized to include the most important topics and with clear graphics to support the narrative. However, its cost and level of detail are more suited as a reference book for those entering the profession. I might suggest "Fishes of the Columbia Basin" by D.D. Dauble, which is an easier, yet informative, read for undergraduate fisheries student or armchair fisheries naturalist from the West Coast. Alternatively, Fish An Enthusiast Guide by Moyle might be suitable for the general fish person seeking more detail on the topic. Both books are available as paperback in the $15-20 range last time I checked.

HASH(0x9c291414) out of 5 stars Difficult to read, but packed with information 18 Jun. 2012
By Ari W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For someone who just got through Biology 1 and 2, I get bogged down with the technical language used in this book (that cannot be found in the index). Once I get past that aspect, it is filled with in-depth information. As a visual learner, I feel that this book could use some more pictures. This would be a great book if you plan on going into aquatic Biology as a major or for graduate school, but the average student could lose focus and interest quickly.

HASH(0x9c170990) out of 5 stars Great book 2 Mar. 2005
By Pedro Jácome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is really a great text book that covers everything from anatomy, behaviour and fish senses, passing through each fish order, until reach valiable aspects of fish comprehension, like zoogeography and aquatic ecology. Because it's scientific writing, the book is fullfilled with graphics and diagrams, so in the beginning the unaware reader should feel such level of difficulty, but it doesnt compromises at all the inner knowledge the book wants to pass.

Sure an awesome title!
HASH(0x9c29160c) out of 5 stars great alternative to the $200 original 3 Dec. 2015
By Aaron Brooksby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
great alternative to the $200 original. Love the paperback. Good quality print. Its just on Chinese paper. Super thin, kind of like a cheap bible paper. But its great! One star off because the info in the book isn't actually that great. Good, but other books are much more informative.
