Additional Information

The South Pacific has long been in need of a comprehensive guide to reef and shore fishes. This volume covers the inshore fish fauna of New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, the southern Gilbert Islands (Kiribati), Tuvalu, Fiji, the Wallis Islands, Tonga, Samoa, American Samoa, the Tokelau Islands, the Phoenix Islands, the Cook Islands, the Austral Islands, Rapa, the Society Islands, the Tuamoto Archipelago, the Marquesas Islands, and the Pitcairn Islands. It contains accounts of nearly 1,500 species of fishes, illustrated with more than 2,000 color photographs, taken mostly underwater. (A few drab species are illustrated by only black and white photographs or drawings.)

Species accounts are headed by the English common name, the scientific name, the author or authors who described the fish, and the date of the description. This is followed by a concise list of the characteristics needed to identify the species, the total length it attains, its distribution, habitat, and in summary form what may be known of its biology. More than 600 references are given for those seeking more information on individual species. The introduction contains a two-page color spread of the main external features of fishes. An extensive glossary of scientific terms precedes the index.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Highly recommended. If you want detail and lots of color pictures for identification this is the book. The only drawback is it's big and heavy.
Familiar fish and startling discoveries are met side by side in this astonishing collection. With text by the expert and photographs by the best, this hard-cover book is a must-have.
I am a saltwater aquarist that is in love with the coral reef and the ocean. I absolutely treasure this book. The detail and time spent to create this is intense. What a magnificent piece of work! Before I go to work, I poor a cup a coffee and browse through the pages a little at a time and think how much I'd rather be tracking these intresting and intrensic species that the ocean has to offer.
