Reviews

"It is over 20 years since the first edition of this book was published. It covers the area from the Western continental shelf off Ireland to mainland Europe... I am sure this update will be welcomed by marine biologists both full-time and amateur." - John Goodier, Science and Technology Reference Reviews Vol.32.1
