A Collins Pocket Guide
This guide includes all fishes that are likely to be observed by anybody visiting or diving on the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific - including the Red Sea - and western Atlantic Oceans to a depth of 60m. 2074 species, over 2500 colour illustrations, with each species illustrated with every major form that is likely to be seen - male, females, immature or geographical varieties.
The text covers the important identification points, where the species is likely to be found on a reef and where it is found in the world, with an introduction to the habitat and how to identity fish in the wild. Important identification characteristics are also highlighted on every plate. This is the first book that enables divers and snorkelers to identify the inhabitants of coral reefs - wherever they are in the world.
