Overview

From Richard Ellis, America's foremost painter and chronicler of undersea life, comes Big Fish, a natural history of the largest fish on Earth. Blending art and science with historical, cultural, and personal stories, Ellis illustrates the giants of the sea, incorporating anecdotes, archival images, and photos related to legendary catches and discoveries. Along the way, we meet big-game fishermen like Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, as well as naturalists and explorers. We also meet all manner of tuna, from bluefin and yellowfin to albacore and bigeye; billfish, from marlins to the mighty swordfish; and sharks, from the long-extinct Megamouth to the very much extant great white. Perfect for all those enchanted by the mysteries of the deep, Big Fish illuminates natural history with wit, charm, artistry, and humor
