In Sharks, Skates, and Rays of the Gulf of Mexico, fascinating rarities and all the commonly sighted species await the naturalist, fisher, outdoor enthusiast, or beach-goer. This guidebook covers almost all the sharks and rays that cruise Gulf waters from the abundant, shallow-dwelling finetooth shark and the frightening electric ray to the deep-dwelling goblin fish.
Color photography, line drawings, and easily understood keys developed exclusively for this book help the reader with quick identification. In addition to general information on reproduction, sensory systems, feeding, and other aspects of marine biology, there is practical information on how to reduce the risk of shark attack, how to prevent and treat stingray wounds, and how to catch, handle, and release a shark safely.
Personal and anecdotal information gathered from twenty-five years of shark research as well as significant facts and figures make Glenn R. Parson's book the ideal companion for anyone scouting the Gulf for its most exciting denizens.
Glenn R. Parsons is a professor of biology at the University of Mississippi.
