World Atlas of Marine Fishes




With more than 6000 photographs of marine fishes this book sets a new benchmark for their identification. It provides the greatest possible coverage and is aimed primarily to assist people interested in marine fishes and their scientific names or classification.
Presented here are the fishes one is likely to see when diving or snorkeling in the sea, as well as those traded in the aquarium industry. Most species occur on shallow reefs in tropical seas, with the greatest species-diversity in Southeast Asian regions. This World Atlas includes both tropical and temperate fishes that are found in inshore coral and rocky reefs, as well as pelagics that visit these waters.

    If you buy only one book for fish identification then this has to be it!
