Book - Find the Fish (first edition)


This eye-spy style book is the "Where's Waldo" of the fish world! 

It is soft-cover and features 11 searches for fish of the northeast Pacific Ocean. Each search is spread across two pages to be 17" wide by 11" high (43 cm x 28 cm). 

All photos were taken by The Marine Detective around NE Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The book also includes sketches of the fish species by Andy Lamb of Coastal Fishes of the Pacific Northwest.

In addition to being fun, the book is intended to add to the knowledge of just how diverse and colourful life is in these cold, dark waters. Text provides background on the images and invites children to look for other species in addition to the featured fish.

Aimed at children ages 5 to 10 and the adults who love them!
