The first four editions of Marine Life of the North Atlantic would not be possible without the contributions of many kind people. They were patiently available for diving, editing, research, technical assistance, and generous gifts of time and resources.
For photography friends, diving buddies, and consultants, again I thank Harvey Petersiel, Fred Bavendam, and Fred Dion. I would like to thank the following underwater photographers who donated images for any of the previous editions. Most are long time diving friends who have contributed in many other ways to this project and to my life. They are: Steve Audet, Fred Bavendam, Jonathan Bird, the late Robert Boyle, Adam Geiger, Timur Kholodenko, Ryan King, Dr. Laurence Madin, David Norman, Richard Palanzi, Jerry Prezioso, Herb Segars, Alan Shepard, and David Whittemore. For all my friends in the diving industry, your contributions and support for the past editions are deeply appreciated.
For scientific information, identification, and expertise, I am indebted to the following people: Ted Maney, Dr. Laurence Madin, Dr. Alan Kuzirian, Dr. Larry G. Harris, Dr. John Costello, Paul Cannon, Brian Cassie, Jerry shine, and the late Dr. Ruth Turner. I am grateful for their generous support and suggestions.
Warm appreciation and thanks to Susan Haas for her explicit and user-friendly illustrations.
The late Robert Boyle of Under Sea Divers helped with reliable dive conditions and generous use of his photos. Tony Bliss, publisher of the 3rd and 4th editions, gave valuable suggestions and careful editing which greatly improved the quality of the book. Particular thanks to Dr. Larry Harris of University of New Hampshire for his enthusiasm in answering my endless, crazy questions.
For editing in earlier editions of the book, I continue to thank David Donavel, Dr. Charles Kellogg, and Anthony Constantino, And finally the quality of the text in this application is entirely due to the dedication, support, patience and love of my wife and editor, Candace.
Writing and photographing a book and now making this phone application has been an incredible journey. But it’s the journey, and the friends along the way, that are the best part of life, both above and under the sea. Thank you all.
Here you can find graphic explanations of how to use the app.
So, get yourself to the beach. Look carefully among the rocks and crevices. Watch the amazing show that nature provides. I can only hope that you find excitement and pleasure each time you visit and that Marine Life of the North Atlantic will add to your enjoyment.
