If you walk along the beach, you will almost always see ashore there. Shells, crabs, seaweeds, starfish, and more are washed ashore daily. Basisgids Strandvondsten is a handy guide in which the species names of these organisms can be found. Because who knows that the black elongated pads are the egg hairstyles of rays? Who recognizes the sea clit, the gray sea finger, the smooth porcelain crab or the zipper? Once you have become acquainted with this beach world, you will get lost!
The guide describes more than 230 species. Each of the species has several photos and a short description. To make comparisons easier, similar species have been placed together. Anyone who wants to actively search for finds will also find tips for this in this basic guide. Apart from the sandy beaches, there is of course often something to be found on piers, harbor heads and breakwaters. And what about the mud flats and salt marshes in Zeeland and the Wadden area? You can also use Basisgids Strandvondsten in those places.
Basisgids Strandvondsten is a perfect guide for anyone who likes to walk along the beach and wants to know what is washing up. Both the novice jutter and the experienced beach lover can get along with it.
