Product Description

From the Back Cover

COMPACT
EASY TO USE • HIGHLY ILLUSTRATED

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.

2 074 species, over 2 500 colour illustrations, with each species illustrated with every major form that is likely to be seen – male, female, 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 identify 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.

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 thorough, yet comprehensive guide to fish of the world for both beginners and the more competent! It's halped me recognise so many more fish and having great, accurate and colourful pictures makes itvery easy to browse through in five minutes, or read and study for hours!

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.

Very beautiful book with thousands of species clearly described with concise captions.
Probably quite difficult to use to identify species whilst actually diving or snorkeling, since the book isn't waterproof.
Recommend reading this either the night after snorkeling, or as a way to get excited before going.
Personally it reminds me of the beauty of life, open the pages and i'm transported to the Indian ocean reefs.
The colours are sublime and inspirational, so many varieties of form and pattern.. great gift for a creative person.
Perhaps would benefit from illustrations of habitats, and perhaps more maps.

There are good photo guides for various parts of the world but this book covers all tropical areas and diagnostic features are highlighted and helpful aspects such as size and behavioural tendencies. The colours are not always accurate. I take mine every time I go to the tropics. Its small size is a bonus on luggage restricted trips and its cheap enough to leave behind if you fond a worthy recipient.
