"Marine Fishes of Arctic Canada represents an incredible resource, and its content is excellent. It is a must-have for anyone working on marine fishes in the Canadian Arctic."

Margaret F. Docker, Dept. of Biological Sciences, University of Manitoba:

"Brian W. Coad and James D. Reist have succeeded superbly in creating a most useful overview of the marine fishes in the Canadian Arctic, a treatise that will be most welcomed by ichthyologists, marine biologists, fisheries researchers, and marine biology students far beyond Canada."

Dr Jeffery M. Saarela, Director, Centre for Arctic Knowledge and Exploration, Canadian Museum of Nature:

"With Arctic biodiversity on land and in water under increasing threat due to the rapidly changing climate, up-to-date and accessible scientific information on Arctic life is critical. This book opens up the rich and diverse world of Canada’s Arctic marine fishes, and will no doubt reach broad audiences and become the standard source of general information on this important and fascinating – but little known – component of Canada’s Arctic marine fauna."
