Biologist, author and underwater photographer, Stephen Fischnaller, grew up with a love for the biological world. He began scuba diving in 1979, and now shares the magic he discovered underwater in Northwest Shore Dives.
While assembling information for this book, the author recognized the importance of understanding current movement and predicting times of slack currents for safe and enjoyable Pacific Northwest diving. With the help of many volunteers, he spent considerable time in the water verifying slack current predictions and mapping current patterns.
