Britain hosts a diversity of freshwater environments, from torrential hill streams and lowland rivers to lakes and reservoirs, ponds and canals, and ditches and estuaries. Britain's Freshwater Fishes covers more than 50 species of freshwater and brackish fish found in these waters. This beautifully illustrated guide features in-the-hand and in-the-water photographs throughout, and accessible and informative overviews of topics such as fish biology and life cycles. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features, with information on status, size and weight, habitat, ecology, and conservation. The book also includes a glossary and suggestions for further reading.

This easy-to-use field guide will be invaluable to anyone interested in Britain's freshwater fish life, from naturalists and academics to students and anglers.

  • Covers all of Britain's freshwater fishes
  • Features beautiful photos throughout
  • Includes detailed information on more than 50 species, the places they inhabit, and their roles in Britain's ecosystems
  • Attractively designed and easy to use


"Mark Everard has added to his already impressive tally of books with his latest release, Britain's Freshwater Fishes. Measuring in at 144 pages featuring 53 species and fully illustrated, it's a full-blown encyclopedia of fishy facts. . . . All in all we are impressed--it's perfect for any angler who wants to know more about fish."--Angler's Mail

"It is a beautiful photographic ID guide. . . . Attractively designed and easy to use."--Dan Kinney, Farming Life

"This book encourages fish-watching explicitly and also through providing the information to make it fun. I like it a lot."--Mark Avery blog

"[T]his book lives up to the billing: it tells you everything the non-angler could reasonably want to know, concisely and with authority. It is in most respects the concise fish book we have been waiting for."--Peter Marren, British Wildlife

"As an in-depth reference book on native fish species, this one's hard to beat. As a comprehensive guide to our native fish species, Britain's Freshwater Fishes is spot on."

"Whether angler or naturalist, this book should be on your bookshelves."--Highland News

"[A]n ideal source of background information for those fly anglers keen to broaden their customary range from time to time and flyfish for coarse fish, or for anyone simply wanting a broader appreciation of our rivers."--Jeffrey Prest, Trout Fisherman

"This well illustrated guide features high quality in-the-water or on-the bank photos throughout. . . . Written in an accessible style, the book also contains introductory sections on fish biology, fish habitats and how to identify fishes, plus conservation and legislation."--Wildlife

"I was immediately attracted to this book because it has an air of quality about it. . . . This book fills a gap and is highly recommended."--Bryan Sage, Country-Side
