5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide for reef fish of the Caribbean, 8 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
I visit family in St. Croix (US Virgin Islands) yearly, and I have looked at a number of books in order to learn the names of the numerous fish I see when I'm snorkeling or diving. This one makes identification easy, with beautiful pictures and the all-important "Distinctive Features" sections, which give you tips on how to distinguish one fish from the next. Make no mistake: this book is the easiest to use and the most comprehensive one I've seen. I'm online to buy the other two books (Reef Coral and Reef Creatures).

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any diver visiting the Bahamas, 25 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
As a SCUBA INSTRUCTOR this book is the best I've seen for fish identification. It gives many pointers on how to distinguish between fish. If your looking for a book to take on a trip make no mistake this is your best choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars None Better, 2 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
I've never found an identifcation book of Caribbean fish that can hold a match to this book. If there's a better book, I would love to know about it. I highly recommend this book to any diver travelling to the Caribbean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best book on Marine Fishes to day, 8 Feb. 2001
By 
Johannes (Stockholm, Sweden) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
I am owning a lot of books about tropical fishes,but no one is as beautifull and usefull as this one. It is almost too good to have five stars!It contains almost 7,00 photograhs and 494 species,of which about 350 are pictured,the remaining ones are similar to the pictured and are only given a description. Many of the species here I have not found in any other book. And if you buy this book,you will be like you`ve taken a drug - your life will be the fishes. Fishes are my great passion in the life and this book is a must-have for any diver,aquarist,fish lover,or biologist. The only thing which isn`t perfect is that there stands nothing about the behaviour of the fishes - but instead they have made a separate book for that (Reef Fish Behaviour). Overall,I am a great lover of marine life,and especially caribbean reef fishes. When I first received it for christmas,I was so happy that I cannot describe it. Now I own the entire trilogy and they are very enjoyable to read and look at over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have reference if you dive/snorkel or take u/w photos, 29 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
This is the first book I purchased after getting certified (I now have the whole series...Fish ID, Coral ID, Creature ID!). Enables you not only to identify the fish you see, but to find the ones that camoflauge themselves! Also very informative regarding fish behavior and filled with excellent photos. Highly recommend!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fish identification book for divers in the Carribean, 10 Oct. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas (Plastic Comb)
The book is very good when you are interested in the fishes you see during diving in the Carribean. Use the 'How to use this book'chapter first to fully utilize the possiblities of the book, otherwise the beautiful yellow fish remains the beautiful yellow fish. It is a pitty you can not take it with you underwater.
