Product description

This volume is a comprehensive treatment of the fish of one of the world's richest biotic provinces. The thousand or so species included in the book are divided into 102 family sections. The families are arranged following the traditional system of phylogeny. Each family is introduced with information on food habits, reproduction and distribution. Most are illustrated with colour underwater photographs, making virtually every fish encountered by anglers, divers and beach walkers easily and quickly identifiable.

Review quote

"A tour-de-force; an identification guide which is attractive to the amateur diver on reefs, yet extremely useful to the specialist ichthyologist."
