Reviews | Table of Contents

Expanded and updated to include an additional 44 species, this is a handy guide to those fishes that are likely to be observed by anybody visiting or diving on the coral reefs of the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific to a depth of sixty meters. Accessible to amateur marine life enthusiasts, this book is the first comprehensive guide of its kind. It enables the reader to quickly identify 2,118 species of fish and includes over 2,500 color illustrations depicting the major forms of each species--male, female, immature, or geographical varieties. The text proceeds according to region, depicting each species and its varieties, and offering information on its geographic range and where on the coral reef itself the fish may be found. Important identification characteristics are highlighted on every color plate.

Review:

"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

Endorsement:

"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
