The City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and taking every precaution for employees and the public. As a cautionary measure, we have decided to POSTPONE the Miller and Lea Book Release Party.

First and foremost, the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. In following Mayor Eric Garcetti’s directive, CMA will be closed to the public until further notice effective Friday, March 13, 2020.

We are sorry for any and all inconveniences and we plan to reschedule the book release party at a later date TBD!!

If you would like to purchase a book before the rescheduled book party, you can buy your copy at


We are pleased to present the newly updated second edition of the classic identification guide: MILLER AND LEA’S GUIDE TO THE COASTAL MARINE FISHES OF CALIFORNIA.

The new edition was revised and edited by Milton S. Love and our very own Julianne Kalman Passarelli, Education and Collections Curator for Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

This comprehensive identification guide encompasses all shallow water marine fishes within California waters. Keeping with tradition, this updated version preserves the layout, look, and feel of the original with over 200 additional species. In all, 753 species are described and 59 dichotomous keys are included, many with new figures and illustrations. A must have for all California fish enthusiasts!

Event Schedule

The event begins with a presentation by Milton and Julianne, followed by refreshments, appetizers, and a book signing.
