I know other, more "scientific" readers have panned the book for lack of supporting data, etc. but as a layperson I didn't notice anything missing. My appreciation for/understanding of this important family of fishes is significantly enhanced by this book. And I'll say it again: it's actually a good read, as long as you are nutty enough to purchase a large book devoted to a single variety of fish. Like me.
Buy it, I think you'll like it!
If you need more information on rockfish than what this volume provides, go look it up in a journal! That is what journals are for. This book does a great job in summing up the basic life history aspects and description of each species. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this is one heck of a beautiful book! The photos are good to great and the distribution maps are nicely done. In terms of overall layout, we can all learn much from this volume. BRAVO !!!!!

A casual glance through this book might impress, but it's really stuffed full of ego-fodder, some really nice art, and some OK summary information about Pacific rockfish species. Read morePublished on September 27, 2002
