The common marine life of the transition waters and more exposed coasts of the Salish Sea are abundant and diverse: giant green anemones, amazing sea stars and thick kelp forests. This eight-fold field guide is a useful aid to coastal exploration from BC to Washington and beyond with over seventy colour photographs to help explorers identify the most common marine wildlife. The travel-friendly pocket guide is packed full of fascinating marine creatures that will capture the interest and imagination of anyone along the Outer Coast—visitor or resident, young or old.
