Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries 8, 105±112 (1998) Fishes of Chesapeake Bay E.O. Murdy, R.S. Birdsong and J.A. Musick Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington and London, 1997 ISBN 1-56098-638-7, £38.95 Cloth cover, acid-free paper, pp. xi 324, 2 tables, 302 ®gures (including 49 colour plates on 24 pages) Numerous keys My volume of Hildebrand and Schroeder's Fishes of the Chesapeake Bay, ®rst published in 1928, is suffering from its own longevity. Pages are yellow and many are starting to detach from the binding. The last reprint, a 1972 edition with taxonomic updates by Chesapeake Bay's distinguished ichthyologists, R.S. Birdsong and J.A. Musick, is out of print and increasingly dif®cult to acquire. The book has an opaque style for today's readers, including cumbersome digressions, minimal directions on taxonomy, anachro- nistic prose and layout, and small type. Although it has endured as the principal reference for nearly 70 years, my colleagues and I have eagerly awaited an up-to-date guide to Chesapeake Bay ®shes. Collaborating ichthyologists E.O. Murdy, R.S. Birdsong and J.A. Musick have produced a new and essential guide for students of Chesapeake Bay ®shes. The book provides a current and authoritative reference for 267 species known to occur in
