The rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific.

The rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific. Milton S. Love.
The rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific.

Berkeley: University of California Press, 2002. Quarto, paperback, colour photographs, black and white photographs, text illustrations, maps.

From sleek shortbelly rockfish that resemble mackerels to heavy-bodied cowcod, the rockfishes display a bewildering array of shapes, sizes and colors. Some of most important marine fishes on the Pacific Coast of the United States, rockfishes often comprise more than 90% of all fishes living on a rocky outcrop. Yet intense fishing and changing ocean conditions have sharply reduced the numbers of many species. Populations of some species are below 10% of their unfished levels. The Rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific is the most comprehensive book ever written on this marvelously diverse group of fishes.
