Fishes of the North Inlet Estuary, SC

A guide to their identification and ecology

Book CoverThis guide has been developed to help students, researchers, fishermen, and curious coastal observers identify and understand more about the fishes that occur in the estuarine and shallow ocean waters of the North Inlet and Winyah Bay areas of the South Carolina coast.

Illustrations and descriptions are provided for all of the common fishes and dozens of less common and rare species known to occur in the North Inlet estuary. Each of the 113 illustrated species accounts includes description, coloration, size, range, habitat, and similar species.  To date, 182 resident and transient fish species have been identified and likely more will be added in the future.  All species known to occur in North Inlet estuary are listed in the Appendix.

The 143 page guide is available as a PDF.  A limited number of printed copies will be available. Contact Dr. Dennis Allen to request a copy.
