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.
