For more than twenty years, readers of The New York Times have looked forward to the Science Times section every Tuesday as one of the few national forums for high-quality science writing.
The New York Times Book of Fish collects the newspaper's best articles on fish and other creatures of the sea, exploring the biology and environments of aquatic life from the oceans' deepest reaches to lakes and rivers throughout the world. Subjects covered include new discoveries in the evolution of fish; the remarkable variety of species that live at the cold, lightless bottom of the sea; the parasites and environment loss that endanger rainbow trout and other freshwater gamefish; the impact of commercial fishing on ocean foodfish populations; the monogamous habits of African cichlid species; and much more.
