More Information
This guide is the only complete reference to the sharks, rays, and chimaeras found in California's waters--from the intertidal zone to 500 miles offshore.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"Ebert has herein assembled an enormous body of knowledge about California's 43 shark species ranging from shark and human behavior to taxonomic minutiae, along with up-to-date explanations of their ecology, status and fisheries. More importantly, his Herculean effort includes the often-overlooked 25 species of skates, rays and chimaeras. That, along with the fine illustrations of Mat Squillante, should answer any question that a student, diver, natural history buff, or recreational or commercial fisher might ask."
--John E. McCosker, coauthor of Great White Shark

"The timing of this publication is ideal given the status of some of California's elasmobranch populations and the need for a deeper understanding of their biology, ecology, and fishery management. The book is a comprehensive treatment--if one wants to find out the latest information on any species of shark or ray off California, this is the place to go. An outstanding work!"
--Gregor M. Cailliet, Professor, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, and Director, Pacific Shark Research Center
