The Rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific
Pacific coast rockfish include some of the most colorful fish in the world. Unfortunately, a combination of factors has led to a crash in their population, in some cases to less than one percent of historic levels. Recent protections have gone into effect in hopes of recovering populations, although this will take considerable time. Many species live over 80 years and only breed during the last half of their life. This comprehensive, 400 page treatise contains hundreds of color photographs, graphs and charts along with a lively, engaging text. In addition to species identification, the entire history of this important group is reviewed, starting with early records and ending with a review of the current state of populations from southern California to Alaska.
