Summary
Seventy per cent of the earth's surface is covered by water and reigning supreme among its creatures are the fish. Their mesmerizing and complex lives remain largely unseen, hidden beneath the waterline, out of sight and out of mind. Scales helps readers fathom the depths and watch these animals going about the glorious business of being fish. She inspires readers to think again about these animals and the seas they inhabit, and to go out and appreciate the wonders of fish.-- adapted from jacket
