A Life Among Fishes explores the life long passion of fisheries scientist and artist Christopher M. Dewees. The book features over 100 of his Japanese fish prints since 1969. Many of these are linked to stories about the journey. History and information about the art form are also described. The book presents Dewees' half century of printing fish and shellfish to full color. We follow his evolution from being exposed and fascinated to gyotaku as a graduate student to his status now as an internationally recognized master in the field. He documents his journey and growth by sharing fifty years of experiences and adventures. In recent years Dewees has done more writing, and these stories and poems are linked to his art.
