Field Guide to Seashells and Shellfish of the Pacific Northwest by Rick M. Harbo

Book Description

Ages 9 to 12 years. Next to collecting colourful pebbles, there are few more enjoyable ways to spend a relaxing afternoon than at the seashore collecting ornate seashells. But there is no need to fly away to some exotic tropical locale to begin the fun. If you are in the Pacific Northwest, you will find local beaches as rich in fascinating treasures as any place on earth -- or at least you will once you have this handy eight-fold guide to show you where to look and how to identify what you find. Those whose interest in shellfish is mainly gastronomic will also find this waterproof guide an essential tool. The most common clams, oysters and mussels are well-known, but which are safe to eat? Is there any truth in the old saying about months with the letter "R" in them? How long should a harvester wait after a bout of red tide? How do you tell a Manila clam from a butter clam? Where does the fabled geoduck lurk? Is there any foolproof method for catching the elusive razor clam? And what about the multitude of other shell-dwellers that populate our beaches -- do they all have names? The guide answers all these questions and more. Here for the first time is a pocket-sized, user-friendly guide to the most popular of all beach creatures, written and photographed by one of the region's most outstanding marine life experts.
