Product Description

From the Back Cover

A revised and updated edition of this popular guide to the fishes of the Indo-Pacific and the Western Atlantic Oceans, including many new species and ten brand-new plates.

Over 2,100 species are illustrated in all their major forms: male, female, immature or geographical varieties.

The guide 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 identify fish in the wild. Important identification characteristics are also highlighted on every plate.

This is the first book that enables divers and snorkellers to identify the inhabitants of coral reefs – wherever they are in the world.

Format: Paperback
Exellent guide to habitats, identification of tropical reef fishes! The size is quite handy (as handbooks should be!) and will fit perfect in any scubadiver, snorkellers bag "on the road", or in my case for the marine aquarium library. The illustrations are a work of art and covers a vast number of species >2.100. A short text introduction is followed by the illustrations including, male, female, juvenile, geographical varieties and important idenfication characteristics on each plate. Impressive!
Snorkeller, scubadiver, marine aquarist - buy this book!

A good ID book... the drawings are a bit dodgy in parts... If you're a diver you're probably better off finding an ID book with photographs of the animals in their surroundings because this helps identification no-end. On the other hand, Collins Pocket Guide: Coral Reef Fishes has a lot of background information and makes a nice addition to the Collins Pocket Guides collection. It also covers a large geographical range so if you're a bit of a globetrotter you'll find this book a good travel companion.

Format: Paperback
This book is packed full of colourful illustrations to help identify species. Each fish illustrated has accompanying brief text describing its physical characteristics and a couple of lines about its usual habitat and food when known.
The text sometimes seems a little too brief, but it still a great spotters book to take on a diving holiday. It is excellent for out doing your dive buddy when trying to identify the type of fish you have seen that will easily fit in to a dry corner of a dive bag.
