"Finally! A truly comprehensive and well-illustrated field guide to the fishes of the Chesapeake Bay is available."(Wendy Gilbert Mariner Chesapeake)
"Director of the National Science Foundation office in Tokyo, Murdy and Musick catalogue fish... in the largest of US estuaries... The information is oriented towards fishing, and the excellent drawings by marine science illustrator Val Kells are not fanciful in-habitat creations, but aids for identifying the species of the fish in the bottom of the boat."(Reference and Research Book News)
"The only comprehensive field guide to the Chesapeake's fishes, this book is an indispensable resource for both anglers and students of the Bay."(Northeastern Naturalist)
"[Kells] is meticulous in her detail that makes her final product scientifically accurate so that her images can be used by scientist and the public alike. Anyone with an interest in the Chesapeake Bay and its fishes will find her work invaluable as a resource."(Marine Environmental Research Corporation)
"Field Guide to the Fishes of the Chesapeake Bay will enrich the time anyone spends on the waters of the Chesapeake... The science is solid as it should be from two veteran ichythologists, but it also carries an engaging human touch that brings each species to life."(John Page Williams Chesapeake Bay Magazine)
"Overall, a very useful guide to fish of this region."(Choice)

"The authors accomplished what they set out to do and did it well. Those with an interest in fishes of the Chesapeake region should buy the book: they won’t be sorry."(Willliam D. Anderson, Jr. Copeia)
"Field Guide to Fishes of the Chesapeake Bay will enrich the time anyone spends on the waters of the Chesapeake, from the freshwater head of tide on the rivers to the salty Virginia Capes and the Atlantic. The science is solid, as it should be from two veteran Bay ichthyologists, but it also carries an engaging human touch that brings each species to life through brief but informative paragraphs on where and how often it turns up in the Chesapeake, what it eats, and why it is important ecologically, commercially, and recreationally. This field guide will certainly find a place on my skiff."(John Page Williams, Senior Naturalist, Chesapeake Bay Foundation)

My only argument is the book covers fishes not really native to the Chesapeake proper.
Its coverage is greater than just the Bay, and includes a good portion of the huge area which is the Chesapeakes watershed.
That said it is a great Guide for the entire Chesapeake watershed.
