Cruise the coast while powerful birds like gannets and fullers keep you company and with luck, dolphins will leap in your bow wave. This book should find a place on every sailor's cabin shelf, in every cruise passenger's day bag and every cliffwalker's backpack pins.

    Our marine resources provide something for anyone interested in saltwater fishing, clamming or crabbing. Stretching from Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook to Cape May and Delaware Bay, New Jersey's 83 miles of bayshores and miles of Atlantic coastline provide unparalleled opportunities for enjoying our marine resources. Study Helps Offshore Energy Development Minimize Wildlife Impacts Novem Braving rain, snow and ice, researchers caught and tagged three diving bird species that use the federal waters in the mid-Atlantic during winter and migration.

    This identification guide uses plates of composite photos to help you identify offshore marine wildlife—‘things you see at sea,’ be they whales, birds, dolphins, turtles, sharks, or flyingfish. Short accounts distill the essence of identification—wildlife views at sea can be brief, and the less time you spend reading a book the better. At Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge on northern Hatteras Island, birdwatchers are treated to a spectacular array of over species of migrating birds. Platforms and dike trails dot the refuge, offering prime viewing of raptors, owls, snow geese, herons, and many rare birds.
