About this book

A Field Guide to the Fishes of Kuching Rivers introduces the non-taxonomic reader to the variety of fish species in the mostly estuarine rivers running through the city of Kuching. Many of the species are illustrated with some of the most stunning photography yet seen in any fish guide.

One hundred and two species are described with detailed information on the appearance, habitat and distribution. These species range from freshwater species that can tolerate low salinity levels to marine species that visit freshwater. A Field Guide to the Fishes of Kuching Rivers covers the species most likely to be seen, and provides characteristics to enable identification without the use of a microscope or anatomy dissection.

In addition, the introductory chapters give a brief review of Sarawak and Kuching, before providing a general outline of fish habitats, biology and ecology. A Field Guide to the Fishes of Kuching Rivers will be of interest to fish biologists, anglers, biology students and anyone interested in tropical estuarine biology or with an interest in the natural history of Borneo and Asia.
