Britain's Freswater Fishes by Mark Everard is an essential book for anyone traveling to Britain and planning to fish its lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers:
Britain hosts a diversity of freshwater environments, from torrential hill streams and lowland rivers to lakes, reservoirs, ponds, canals, ditches, and upper reaches of estuaries. The book covers the 53 species of freshwater and brackish water fishes that are native or have been introduced and become naturalized.
This beautifully illustrated guide features high-quality in-the-water or on-the-bank photographs. Detailed species accounts describe the key identification features and provide information on status, size and weight, habitat, ecology, and conservation. Written in an accessible style, the book also contains introductory sections on fish biology, fish habitats, how to identify fishes, and conservation and legislation.
