Library Journal
Reaske offers soup-to-nuts (to have around your main seafood course) guides to catching clams, oysters, mussels, crabs, and lobsters. Each book presents details on the equipment needed, biological information, plus tips on preparing the fish and a few recipes. Any library near a coastline would do well to have these on hand.
