With 1,700 superb colour photographs of over 1,400 species, "Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest: A Photographic Encyclopedia of Invertebrates, Seaweeds and Selected Fishes" is the most comprehensive collection of photographs of Pacific Northwest marine life ever published. It is designed to allow the reader to recognize virtually any coastal organism that might be encountered from southern Alaska to southern Oregon--from sea lettuces and feather boa kelp through to the leopard ribbon worm, Pacific red octopus, spiny-thigh sea spider and gutless awning-clam. Each species is identified with photographs and includes a description with information on range, habitat, appearance and behaviour. Andy Lamb and Bernard Hanby have spent most of their lifetimes studying and recording Pacific Northwest marine life and have completed over 4,000 scuba dives between them. Some of the species included in this volume have never been featured in print before. Colour-coded for quick reference and including a glossary and full index, "Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest" is a must-have for serious biologists, scuba divers, beachcombers or anyone interested in marine life and beautiful underwater photography.

Andy Lamb is a marine naturalist who has worked as both Chief Collector and Education Coordinator at the Vancouver Aquarium,and as a fish culturist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada.He lives on Thetis Island, BC, where he runs a B&B with his wife Virginia.

Bernard P. Hanby is an avid amateur photographer and scuba diver. He is the recipient of the Vancouver Natural History Society's 2003 Davidson Award for Conservation and Education, and serves on the Conservation and Education Committee of the Vancouver Aquarium Marine SeaLife Science Centre. His photographs have appeared in numerous publications and are displayed in the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre (Sidney, BC) and the Alaska Sea Life Center. He lives in West Vancouver, BC.
