SALTWATER GAME FISH OF NORTH AMERICA. By Herbert A. Schaffner.
1989 1st edition. Square 4to (260 x 261mm). Pp144. Colour photographs and marlin, shark, and tuna are a few of the hard-fighting, elusive game fish that lure eager anglers across the continent, from the open seas of the North Atlantic to the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. No matter where the angler travels in pursuit of game fish, what differentiates the successful from the merely enthusiastic angler is knowledge. The best sport fishermen are also amateur icthyologists with an unquenchable curiosity about the feeding, mating, migrating, spawning, and territorial habits of their prey. [This book] ...contains all of the relevant facts about every popular game fish from barracuda to wahoo. A separate listing for each fish describes in detail the behavior and characteristics that anglers need to know, including range, color, size, and spawning period. In addition, each entry covers the unique species characteristics the anglers need to identify a fish, including fin location, gill and scale counts, and jaw and tooth configuration... Lavishly illustrated with beautiful paintings and photographs, and packed with all the information an angler requires to be successful in the pursuit of his or her chosen fish".
