4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference manual
An excellent and concise reference guide for those wishing to identify the marine life while diving or snorkeling. Finding your sightings is made easy, as the guide covers only the fish you will encounter in the Maldives. It's was much quicker and more accurate to identify what you had seen compared to other field guides, which may cover a much wider range of fish but...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sharks are fishes
When planning our travel to Maldives I browsed the marine life guides available. In front of other guides covering all marine life (including shells, slugs and so on) I decided to buy this more specific one because I thought it would include nearly all fishes in the islands. But, to my surprise, I could not find anything about sharks or rays. The book is nice, handy and...

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential guide for 'fish-spotting' in the Maldives, 7 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Photo Guide to Fishes of the Maldives (Atoll Editions) (Paperback)
A very easy to use, accurate, photographic guide allowing rapid identification of all reef fishes seen whilst snorkeling or diving. The photographs are very true to life, unlike many other guides. The information given is useful without being excessive. If you're thinking of snorkeling or diving in the Maldives then buy it!

A much needed accesory after seeing so many varied fish ammong the reefs. Proved very accurate in most cases. Definately worth the investment. Cost upwards of 40 dollars if bruoght at resort

4.0 out of 5 stars Used by the dive centres in the Maldives!, 31 Oct. 2003

This review is from: Photo Guide to Fishes of the Maldives (Atoll Editions) (Paperback)
A great book, lovely photo's and good descriptions. Its a real shame it doesn't cover Sharks, Rays and other things found under water in the Maldives! Great book to take with you on holiday but frustrating that it doesn't cover all marine life. So remember to buy a shark and Ray book aswell... (A ploy to make you spend more money perhaps!?)

5.0 out of 5 stars just a superb resource, 31 May 2010

This review is from: Photo Guide to Fishes of the Maldives (Atoll Editions) (Paperback)
An awesome book that proves an invaluable resource if you are thinking of diving or snorkelling in the Maldives. Stunning photography and adequate description make this a must have. Please note that the book does not include sharks or rays - I'm not clear why that is. Nonethe less, the best book available for fish in the maldives in my opinion, by far.

Considering this book was second hand we were surprised by how new it looked. It's now out of print so this was the only way to get it for our trip to the Maldives.
