Marine Fish of the Channel Islands

This book covers all 216 known marine fish species recorded from the Channel Islands. Each fish has a separate illustrated entry which covers its biology, history, distribution, behaviour and ecology. Unexpected events and anecdotes relating to local fishing culture are included as is information on population trends and abundance. For those fish that are most popular with recreational anglers, capture techniques and bait preferences are given. All this is accompanied by several hundred colour illustrations, maps and photographs.

      Written with the naturalist, angler and ichthyologist in mind, this book puts a perspective on the scope and status of the fish species that live in one of Europe's most important but fragile regional maritime regions.
