'Luminous Sea' by Richard Salas
Luminous Sea is the third and final installment of an epic trilogy. Richard Salas has once again outdone himself. This book documents an extended study of life in the oceans of the Pacific Northwest. Below the austere coastal landscapes of Washington, Canada, and Alaska, there is another world. In the bitterly cold, nutrient-dense water, water that would kill an unprotected human in fifteen minutes, there is a diverse explosion of life.
