The Great Lakes are home to an impressive variety of fishes. The Guide to Great Lakes Fishes describes 62 of the region's most commonly found species, from giants like the Lake Sturgeon to minnows and shiners. Beautiful color illustrations accompany color photographs and line drawings to highlight distinguishing characteristics of each fish.
Each profile includes quick facts about distribution, diet, behavior and conservation status. Informative essays on the natural history, adaptations, and characteristics of Great Lakes fishes are also covered, as well as detailed diagrams of the aquatic habitats and food chains within the Lakes.
This is a must-have guide for every angler, fishery or wildlife professional, and conservationist. And it’s waterproof!
