"Skin divers, here is the capital 'D' Definitive guide to all the fishes you're ever apt to see on reefs down to 60 meters."--John Balzar, Los Angeles Times "An excellent field guide to coral reef fishes anywhere in the world... [It] fills a niche for amateur and professional visitors to reefs, combining in one compact volume what has previously required several, usually expensive, works."--Naturalist "Scuba divers, naturalists, and anyone fascinated with the wonder of coral reef fishes will welcome this book with great enthusiasm."--Wildlife Activist "An excellent and handy reference source and would be an asset to any diver's library."--Doug Pemberton, Diver Magazine

Back cover copy

"I have used this book for identifying fishes I have seen underwater. It is one of the best for this purpose since it is handy and comprehensive, containing all likely coral reef fishes in the Caribbean and Indo-Pacific. Most other books contain only a subset. In addition, this guide provides clues for quick and proper identification."--Rainer Froese, Senior Scientist, International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), Philippines
