This photographic and descriptive guide to the fish species that inhabit the North Atlantic and Mediterranean is unique in its emphasis on the appearance of marine fish in their natural habitats. It expands and recasts the Lythgoes' highly regarded first edition published two decades ago. In particular, all of the more than 200 color photographs are new, and most are accompanied by line drawings that emphasize distinctive traits. The fish are arranged by class, family, and species, and succinct descriptions give detailed information about anatomy, distribution, food, and breeding habits. Most of the photographs were taken underwater, providing valuable information on how the fish swims in nature, its true colors and pattern, and whether or not it is camouflaged against its natural background. The geographical area covered in the book includes the Atlantic coastal waters of the United States and Canada north of Chesapeake Bay; the Mediterranean; and from Gibraltar north to the Arctic, including all the coasts of Europe. John Lythgoe, a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, is an expert on the appearance and color of fish underwater. The section of the book on the gobies, a group of fish that are as difficult to study as they are interesting, has been contributed by Peter J. Miller. Gillian Lythgoe is a diver, photographer, and the future and managing director of Planet Earth Pictures, whose collection covers a wide range of natural history and environmental subjects.

What kind of dory have you caught? At what depth and where on the continental shelf are trevally most likely to be caught? What other fish are these most likely to be confused with? This book is the result of research and observation of fishes most commonly caught (and sometimes confused) by commercial and recreational fishers. Jorge Hirt-Chabbert provides a user-friendly guide that makes the process of identifying your catch simple. Visual clues are the paramount guide to naming your fish, with technical information about the species kept to a minimum. Each entry includes facts that will enhance your knowledge of a species such as spawning times, average length and weight, and physical features unique to a species. Fish Species of New Zealand is a book for all fishers, whether beginner or expert. It can be used as a guide to a focused species catch, or as a reference to find out what's been caught while fishing from a dinghy.

Fate and Impact of Microplastics in Marine Ecosystems: From the Coastline to the Open Sea brings together highlights from the conference proceedings for MICRO 2016: Fate and Impact of Microplastics in Marine Ecosystems: From the Coastline to the Open Sea. While the presence of microplastics in ecosystems has been reported in the scientific literature since the 1970’s, many pressing questions regarding their impacts remain unresolved. This short format title draws from the shared scientific and technical material and summarizes the current research and future outlook. Includes a range of topics, from macro- to microplastics Presents data from source to sink, including occurrence and distribution of microplastics in freshwater bodies, coastal zones, and the open ocean Presents the impacts of microplastics on marine life as well as microplastics as vectors of biological and chemical contaminants Provides important analysis on solutions and next steps

The current review intends to provide an overview of existing, state-of-the-art fish identification tools including those at the initial stages of development and to show their potential for providing the right solution in different real-life situations. The content of this review is based on the results and recommendations of the FAO/UVIGO Workshop on "Fish Identification Tools for Fishery Biodiversity and Fisheries Assessments". It is expected that the review will help fisheries managers, environmental administrators and other end users to select the best available species identification tools for their purposes. The experts involved in this review also hope that it will help renew the public interest in taxonomy and promote the need for taxonomic research including user-friendly species identification tools
