About the Author

Paul Naylor has been captivated by the animals that live around the coast of Britain since he first donned a mask and snorkel on the Norfolk coast nearly fifty years ago. Ever since then, he has spent as much time as possible underwater, watching them go about their busy lives. Paul is passionate about sharing the beauty and fascination of the animals with as wide an audience as possible, through books, articles, talks, films, social media and TV, appearing with his footage on the BBC's Coast, The One Show, Blue Planet UK and Countryfile. His photographs and video have been extensively used in campaigns for better protection and awareness of the UK's amazing but too often under-appreciated marine life. Paul has a doctorate in marine biology and is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

Reviews

'This book is recommended to anyone with an interest in marine life, from armchair naturalists and curious kids to university-level biologists and beyond. ...so much more than a species list - it's a guide to how we can search for them and at the same time understand their lives.' SCUBA MAGAZINE; '...well edited, incisive and highly informative. A treat to read and a joy to browse - the images alone could sustain a coffee-table art book.' DIVE MAGAZINE; 'I cannot recommend it highly enough, to marine biologists and non-marine biologists alike...' THE MARINE BIOLOGIST; '...includes even more stunning underwater photography and captivating text than its predecessors.' PMNHS BULLETIN; 'It is nothing less than a triumph: a gasp on every page...' THE TIMES on the 3rd edition (before the upgrade!)
