About the Author

While growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Greg Jwnsen developed an avid interest in marine biology and a particular fascination with crabs and shrimps. Since completing his doctoral dissertation on porcelain crabs, he has worked as a biologist at the University of Washington School of Fisheries and taught classes in crustacean biology and ichthyology at the University of Washington and Western Washington University. He has authored numerous articles in technical journals on various aspects of crab and shrimp biology, including such topics as reproductive cycles, larval settlement, and intertidal zonation, along with descriptions of new species. A diver since 1974, he first tried underwater photography in 1978 and now finds it difficult to enter the water without a camera in his hands.

Format: Paperback
This is a valuable reference for anyone who lived and eats from the Pacific North West Marine environment. The descriptions are consise and well written. The colour plates are clear and make identification fairly easy.
It is well organized and will probably be on my Christmas shopping list for a few select friends.

Format: Paperback
I knew Greg when I was a grad student at Western Washington U. while he was still writing this book and photographing subjects. I had many lengthy conversations with him then and would consider him an authority on west coast crustaceans. Now I work at the Humboldt State U. Marine Lab and frequently use his book as a reference (when students aren't borrowing it!). It is easy to use and more up-to-date with the latest taxonomic changes than many other books on the subject.

My son and I used this volume to design flies to catch flounder and sea perch. Both were successful.

This is an excellent source of information for such activities.

A book on marine crustaceans, rather incomplete, needs more illustrations. It barely slices it, and
I am giving my copy away to diver friends.
