North Sea Fish and Their Remains
Kees Camphuysen and Peter Henderson
Price: £45.00 + postage
Published in September 2017, this book is based upon Peter Henderson's definitive Identification Guide to the Inshore Fish of the British Isles
(Pisces, 2015). It is a collaboration between Kees Camphuysen of the Royal Netherlands Institute of Sea Research (NIOZ
) and Peter Henderson of Pisces, and adds a huge amount of information on the remains of fish, such as otoliths and vertebrae.
Focussing on the fish of the North Sea, rather than the British Isles, makes this book relevant to all countries bordering the North Sea. It provides the definitive fish identification source for almost 150 fish species, with colour images and B/W illustrations of each species, and detailed information on ID, distribution, food, life history, ecology and more.
It is regarded as the most accessible work on fish remains, and is therefore invaluable to bioarchaeologists, ornithologists, and anyone else for whom fish remains provide insight into their work. It also serves, of course, as a more generalised fish identification guide for marine biologists, professional and amateur ecologists, and students.
