I highly recommend this book for those who would like an accessible overview of Marine Sciences.

I'm using this book as a learning and reference tool as part of my continuing education as a citizen scientist (I'm a Puget Sound Beach Watcher). Over all, I am pleased with my purchased.

Castro's Marine biology is a lovely introductory book on the subject. Biology is a descriptive science, and this book is equally descriptive - although it's a textbook, it flows smoothly as a novel. It's liberally peppered with illustrations and photos, which makes for a great reading experience. I'm no biologist, but for reading and learning from this book, one doesn't have to be. An interest in the workings of the deep blue ocean is enough.

This was a very intresting book..all my life i loved marine life like how a fished breath, how a fish moved, or how a fish i wanted to be in the fishes brain for one day to see how it was...i learned alot from this book!
Castro's Marine Biology was a good introductory to marine biology. This was my text for Marine Biology at University. It was very detailed and the pictures were amazingly lovely. It is also an easy read, chapter by chapter book.
A very good introductory textbook about marine biology. Beautiful pictures and easy text.
