The Rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific

by Milton S. Love, Mary Yoklavich and Lyman Thorsteinson

Rockfish display a bewildering array of shapes, sizes and colors. These important marine fish often comprise more than 90% of all fishes living on a rocky outcrop. Yet intense fishing and changing ocean conditions have sharply reduced numbers of many species.

This book addresses all aspects of our current knowledge of their biology and ecology and includes hundreds of photographs, illustrations, historical anecdotes and maps. 

The first sentence: "We wrote this book because Rockfish are Cool."
