A Number of Sea Fish are Missing from this Book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great British Marine Animals (Paperback)
This book is good if you want to learn about a lot of our marine Animals but I was looking for a book which would help to identify sea fish as we have just taken up sea fishing and wanted to be able to identify what we catch. Some of our well known sea fish are missing from this book including whiting and more.It is a nice book but disappointed in it's content on fish. It is certainly not a book for Fish identification.

Would you be able to suggest an alternative book? I am very interested in scuba diving/fishing and would like to buy a guide to identify species in UK...
thanks for your contribution!

A field guide to the Marine Fishes of Wales by Paul Kay and Frances Diper is superb. Not just Wales but fish that you are likely to encounter all over the UK. Very comprehensive and clear. Shows you clear images and relates them to scuba interest, sport fishing interest and commercial fishing interests. There are a lot of fish out there and it shows you exactly how to go about working out what the one you have just found is. Also a very beautiful book.

There are hundreds of British fish, this book could not possibly include them all. This book is designed to introduce you to a whole range of underwater beasts so that you can connect to what you see when you are down there. If your passion is fish then what you want is: A field guide to the Marine Fishes of Wales by Paul Kay and Frances Diper. Although written about Wales the fish here are the ones to be found all over the UK. This book shows you all the main fish as well as few rarer ones with clear images and relates them to scuba interest, sport fishing interest and commercial fishing interests. It shows you exactly how to go about working out what the fish you have just found is. A very educational and beautiful book. It definitely includes whiting and shows you how to tell the difference from it's close relatives: pouting, haddock and pollock.
