Summary David Powell, pioneering aquarist and long-time curator at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, gives a highly personal view of the mind-boggling challenges that make modern aquariums possible. From the early techniques he devised to get fish into aquariums alive and healthy to his later exploratory dive to a depth of eleven hundred feet in a two-person submarine, Powell's action-packed narrative inspires laughter, wonder, and philosophical reflection. A Fascination for Fish also includes many stories about Powell's diving adventures in many remote and exotic locations around the world.
