Explores over 160 fish species in Europe, from the primitive lamprey to the magnificent Atlantic salmon, & from the massive sturgeon to the tiny guppy. Explains the appearance, range, habitat, courtship, breeding, life-cycle & feeding behavior of each species. The specially commissioned artworks & beautiful full-color photos allow quick & easy identification. The book is organized by fish family. Closely related species are grouped together, so that minor differences in appearance of behavior can be easily recognized. Fish species that have been introduced from other parts of the world, or that are found only rarely, are linked to their more important cousins. Explores the conservation issues that threaten fish throughout Europe.
