I have long been interested in the seas & seashore and wanted a book that would help me to identify some of the myriad of plants and animals that i have seen on and around our shores. Well this book fits the bill nicely !. perhaps not ideal for a complete beginner it is cetainly ideal for those who know a little about marine life. From the minute i picked it up I was fascinated and absorbed and my interest has been increased hugely by the insights gained from the book. It is helpful for identification of many many species of molluscs, worms, crustaceans,starfish etc etc, listing a huge number of species, not just the most common ones. It also gives a fascinating insight into the life cycles,habitats,breeding patterns and biology of an imense range of species.
The book will be useful for students and divers as well as those who simply have an interest in the sea life of Britain.
All in all a reccomended buy

4.0 out of 5 stars All you want to know about seashore, 10 Oct 2000
By A Customer
If you want to do marine biology, especially if you include field trips, even more especially if it's in the Aberystwyth area, this is an extremely useful book.
Students at Aber have been able to benefit from the knowledge of Fish and Fish for years, and here that knowledge is written down.
Filled with keys to help you recognise the species, which can all look very similar to the less informed (we students etc), and with plenty of info on habitat, major features, similarities shown to other species, even some information on specific life cycles.
Divided into phylogenetic order, this shows you seaweeds, sponges, worms of more types than anyone hopes to see, anemones, mollusc, anelids, and much more.
And if you own this, and happen to visit the Aberystwyth area, you could pop in the university and visit the authors (if they're not working)in the biology building!
