PRINT RESOURCES; Books and articles

These are on the counter already for you.  Two especially helpful titles are.

Fishes of the Pacific Coast, by Gar Goodson is especially helpful – one copy fell apart and we laminated the pages for you to use as well 🙂

Probably More Than You Want To Know About the Fishes of the Pacific Coast, by Milton Love – this one is also very useful.

There are also some articles about specific topics like the Asian Clam, and Chinese Mitten Crab.
