Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwest is written by a marine biologist Andy Lamb. Andy’s writing is supported by prize winning underwater photographer Phil Edgell’s photos and illustrations. Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwest identifies each fish by its common name and is illustrated with full-colour photographs and labeled sketches.
Special sections present catching tips for anglers and commercial fishermen; location hints for divers, beachcombers and pleasure boaters; and cooking ideas for seafood gourmets. The information included in these sections provides a brief but detailed description of each fish’s habitat, physical characteristics and behaviour–everything that a fisherman or an amateur naturalist needs to know!
An amazing tool for marine enthusiasts, freedive-harvesters and spearfishers alike!

Having local species knowledge of the creatures within the waters we explore and an understanding of the local environments we visit allows us a greater experience beneath the surface. Be it for freediving, snorkelling, spearfishing or scuba diving reasons, anyone can benefit from the knowledge in these books and field guides in supporting the enjoyment of your next underwater adventure.
As Freedive-Harvesters and Spearfishers it’s important to remember the importance and power that knowledge gives you. Knowing your target species. Knowing how to differentiate species. Understanding species life cycles and the relationships they have with the environments in which they live. All of these pieces of information are the base and foundation of the knowledge a true Sustainable and Ethical Harvester possesses.
