1 Maitland, P.S. & R.N. Campbell Freshwater Fishes of the British Isles
0007308507 / 9780007308507 New
(1992), 2009 reprint. 26cm. Pp.368. 21 colour photos, 2 colour plates, 150 b/w illustrations. Hardbound.

An in-depth look at the 55 species of fish that inhabit the fresh waters of Britain and Ireland. These include famous members of the salmon family, such as the Atlantic Salmon and the Brown Trout, and the obscure whitefish, species of which are confined to just a few lakes.

Freshwater Fishes of the British Isles gives a comprehensive overview of the life cycle of fish, as well as details on diet, behaviour and ecology. The book also contains the most up to date identification key to both the families and individual species of fish, allowing every species of freshwater fish to be conclusively identified.

As well as detailed descriptions of each family, there are also seven chapters on more general subjects, including fish conservation and the future of the fish fauna in Britain.

Price: 65.00 GBP
2 Maitland, P.S Keys to the Freshwater Fish of Britain and Ireland, with Notes on their Distribution and Ecology
0900386711 / 9780900386718 New
2004. 25cm. Pp.248. 48 colour photos, figures, maps. Paperback.

Revised edition, enlarged and updated. Fifty-seven species are recognised in a checklist for Britain and Ireland, several new.

Additionally, Sterlet, Siberian Sturgeon, Grass Carp, Channel Catfish and Brown Bullhead are also included in the keys to species (though not illustrated) because they may be encountered in fresh and estuarine waters within the British Isles.

All species in the checklist are illustrated by line drawings accompanying the relevant key couplets. Accurate identification is assisted by additional text in a new section summarising important external features of each species, their general body size, habitat, reproduction, food, distribution, and use for angling and fisheries.

In addition to the keys for identifying 23 families and 62 species of adult fish, keys to family level are also provided for identifying the eggs and post-larval stages, and the scales of adult fish; the scales are illustrated with photographs and line drawings emphasising the most important diagnostic features.

Price: 34.75 GBP
