Shells and Shellfish of the Pacific Northwest
Paperback - English

Shells and Shellfish of the Pacific Northwest is the indispensable guide for beachcombers, seashell collectors, divers or anyone who wants to know more about the shells and shellfish found along the saltwater beaches and intertidal areas of the Pacific Northwest. Everyone from weekend adventurers to serious collectors will love this book

This comprehensive field guide introduces more than 250 species of mollusks - clams, oysters, scallops, chitons and more - whose range extends from Alaska to B.C. to Washington, Oregon and California. Rick Harbo has included detailed descriptions and colour photos of familiar species like the mussel as well as more obscure ones like the checkered hairysnail and the gutless awning clam. Shells and Shellfish of the Pacific Northwest is also packed with information on places to find shells, the importance of shells in Native art and culture, and guidelines on edibility and conservation. A special full-colour section on identifying clams by their siphons or shows is a first for shell guidebooks.

Discover the rich, varied marine life of the Pacific Northwest with this fascinating, easy-to-follow book. Don't go to the beach without it
