John Quinn (author, naturalist, artist and founding member of NANFA) has
made his personal cache of one of his native fishes books available through

Fishwatching: Your Complete Guide to the Underwater World!

From the back of the book:
Scuba diving near a coral reef is only one of myriad ways to observe fish
in a natural environment. Fishwatching may also involve snorkeling in
freshwater ponds and streams close to home, watching a school of bluefish
feed on crabs just off a mid-Atlantic beach, or getting close to a school
of migrating gray whales. John Quinns enthusiasm, spirited stories, and
vast knowledge will draw even the most inexperienced landlubber into the
beauty and mystery of fishwatching. The book is illustrated with over 100
of the authors drawings and a selection of color photographs.

A complete and practical guide, Fishwatching delves into:
 techniques and equipment needed for scuba diving, snorkeling, night
diving, underwater photography, and making your own "waterscope";
 fishwatching above the waves, with tips on chartering a boat, choosing
the best time to go, attracting wildlife, and even keeping a field
 safety concerns, including advice on moving in currents, avoiding
dangerous species, and staying comfortable in the water;
 the natural history of mammals, invertebrates and fish species found in
the fresh and saltwater habitats.

These books are brand new, paperback, 231 pages in length, and signed by
John Quinn. Original retail price was $18. Cost of the book to you
including Priority Mail shipping is just $14. A small amount of your
purchase price will go towards NANFA's operating costs and programs, so you
can feel good about buying this book!
