Known as the Garden State, New Jersey could also be called the Fishing State. New Jersey boasts more than 6,000 miles of rivers and streams; 24,000 acres of public lakes, reservoirs and ponds; 420 square miles of open bay and estuary waters; and 120 miles of ocean coast — with nearly every gallon of water swimming with a remarkable variety of fish.

Using his more than 50 years of personal and academic observations, Glenn R. Piehler has written the perfect guidebook for new and proficient anglers, as well as students of fisheries science.

Piehler begins with the taxonomic origins and classification of almost 100 species of fresh and saltwater sport fishes described in the book, as well as “a number of creatures you might unwittingly hook into . . . with just enough technical jargon and information on the general biology of fishes to make the remaining chapters more winning,” he  writes. “In each case I have tried to capture the essence of each species or group of species—what they look like, how big they get, where they came from, what kind of waterbodies they live in, what they do for a living, generally how and when they may be caught, how they’ve fared over the years and are doing today, and where you can get more specific information about some of them.”

Exit Here for Fish examines the factors affecting the distribution and abundance of fish, probing the controversies surrounding preservation efforts, and the apportionment of fish among sport and commercial interests. Piehler looks at the seldom-examined history of fisheries and laws dealing with their management, habitats, and water quality. Finally, he lists a host of activities readers can enjoy, such as fish tagging and volunteering for the Wildlife Conservation Corps, to help preserve and protect the fun of fishing.

From the Back Cover:

Known as the Garden State, New Jersey could also be called the Fishing State. New Jersey boasts more than 6000 miles of rivers and streams; 24,000 acres of public lakes, reservoirs and ponds; and 120 miles of ocean coast-with every square mile of water teeming with a remarkable variety of fish.

Glenn R. Piehler begins with the taxonomic origins and classification of almost one hundred species of fresh and saltwater sport fishes described in the book. "In each case," he writes, "I have tried to capture the essence of each species or group of species-what they look like, how big they get, what kind of waterbodies they live in, what they do for a living, generally how and when they may be caught, how they've fared over the years, and where you can get more specific information about some of them."

Exit Here for Fish! examines the factors affecting the distribution and abundance of fish, probing the controversies surrounding preservation efforts, and the apportionment of fish among sport and commercial interests.

Using his more than fifty years of personal and academic observations, Piehler has written an invaluable guidebook for novice and veteran anglers as well as students of fisheries science.
