"Indeed, this is one of the best crayfish-oriented books this reviewer has ever read. While the book will appeal most to crayfish enthusiasts, it actually has a much broader value; anyone interested in managing aquatic species in general should find the book's lessons quite valuable. This reviewer had originally planned to give this book away after reviewing it, but now it occupies a valued space on his bookshelf. Highly recommended."
