Not until you actually see it and go through it, do you realize what a terrific book Dr. Bob Shipp put out...It's a must for every angler, nature lover or person who just wants to know what is swimming in the Gulf. -- Mobile Press Register, April 30, l986

The only popular volume by a marine scientist which is devoted to the fishes of the entire Gulf of Mexico. Scientifically accurate, but popularly oriented; the book blends anecdotes with authenticity, modern underwater photography with illustrations from the archives of the Smithsonian Institution. The book will allow the reader to identify what they catch ( it has been adopted by the U.S. coast guard and National Marine Fisheries Service for their enforcement officers) as well as gain knowledge about distribution, life histories, and world records. -- Book Description
