Eye of the Shoal: The Surprising Lives of Fishes (Peninsula)
Earth, seventy percent covered by water, is home to a multitude of strange ocean creatures, and dominant among them are the fishes. There are giants that live for centuries and thumb-sized tiddlers that survive only weeks; they can be pancake-flat or inflatable balloons; they can shout with colors or hide in plain sight, cheat and dance, remember and say sorry; some rarely budge while others travel the globe restlessly. In discussion of her most-recent book, Eye of the Shoal, Dr. Helen Scales will provide "A Fishwatcher's Guide to Life, the Oceans, and Everything." When not writing (or underwater), marine biologist Helen Scales teaches marine conservation at Cambridge University.
