Description:

"In Fishes of the Texas Laguna Madre, longtime angler and fish biologist David A. McKee taps into a lifetime of fishing and studying the lagoon to give us an expert's guide to this big, salty estuary and the fish that live there." "This book covers the natural history of the "Mother Lagoon" and provides information on common names, characteristics, life histories, ecological ranges, and feeding and reproduction habits distinctive of the fish species found in this hypersaline environment. For some species, and especially the "Big 5" coastal sportfish (spotted seatrout, red drum, black drum, sheepshead, and southern flounder), McKee offers additional notes on angling techniques, personal observations, record catches, and regulations." "McKee also raises important conservation issues for boaters and anglers to keep in mind while enjoying the special environment of this unusual ecosystem." "Visitor contact information (including the location of boat docks, boat ramps, and piers) rounds out the text, along with three maps. Excellent black-and-white drawings of the fish, the majority by the late Henry "Hank" Compton, are featured throughout." "Fishes of the Texas Laguna Madre is for novices and "lagunatics" alike. It will be an invaluable guide for anglers and naturalists; canoers, kayakers, and boaters; students and teachers of fishery science; and anyone who lives near or has an interest in this unique and expansive body of water."--BOOK JACKET.
