This beautiful little field guide by leading marine scientists will help you identify and learn about the many plants and animals of the intertidal zone of northern New England and the Maritimes. Don’t go to the water’s edge without it!

Here's a beautifully illustrated little field guide that will help you identify and learn about the many plants and animals of our intertidal zone. Written for the Maine Sea Grant Program, it's a fact filled resource, arranged for easy identification, covering habitats, invertebrates, fishes, and marine plants and seaweeds.
