From the Back Cover
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.

Snorkeller, scubadiver, marine aquarist - buy this book!
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.
