About this book

The rocky reefs that ring New Zealand's coastline provide some of our most stunning natural 'landscapes'. From the vertical walls and caves of the Poor Knights Islands to the unlimited visibility and bizarre life forms under the sea ice of Antarctica, our coastal waters support an astounding array of marine organisms.

The Living Reef is the most significant insight into this remarkable undersea world to be published for 30 years. The Living Reef is composed of 32 chapters which focus on key species of fish, animal and plant life, while also profiling our most important marine ecosystems, from the Kermadec Islands to Fiordland and Antarctica. Supporting the text is the most impressive collection of New Zealand underwater photography ever gathered together in a book.
