The text is fully sourced and maintains a clear, readable style for readers without specialised knowledge of crays. Environmental management , anatomy and identification are covered, a glossary of technical terms and an index are included. Diagrams and the excellent colour plates of live crays or habitats have been placed next to the relevant text. Some plates are the first published colour photographs of rare or poorly known species.
The cover is conspicuous for easy identification and laminated for hard wear; there is no dust jacket. The tough water-repellent cover enables the book to be used in field conditions with reduced risk of damage.
