The Gulf has a unique diversity of sharks and rays, but for many years their correct identification has been problematic. This fully illustrated book - the first of its kind to focus on the Gulf - brings together the latest research and years of work by the authors to provide a clear and comprehensive guidebook. For each species known to occur in the Gulf, colour images, identification features, and notes on distribution, abundance, ecology and conservation status are provided. Images and information are also provided on those species from nearby sea areas that might turn up in Gulf fish markets. Sharks & Rays of the Arabian/Persian Gulf will be of interest to all those with an interest in the Gulf's marine environment or in marine wildlife such as divers, anglers, natural history enthusiasts, conservationists, research biologists and government fisheries staff.
