This handy, fully illustrated guide is designed to help researchers and scientists identify squids and octopods found in the eastern North Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea, regions that have been difficult to sample because of their rough seas—and thus have been poorly known until now. Printed on waterproof paper, the book describes and illustrates forty-four species, with full scientific details and aids to identification.
