About this poster

The 138 illustrations by Elaine Heemstra on this poster depict the wonderful shapes, colours and varieties of marine fishes found off the southern African coastline in estuaries and intertidal and sub-tidal zones or close inshore.

The names of all the fishes illustrated on this poster are shown in English with their scientific name in Latin. Distribution areas are given together with the maximum size and weight attained in a species. Endemic species are indicated in blue. The status of fish species whose numbers are threatened or vulnerable or where their catch is prohibited or restricted are shown, Where there is a great difference in colouration between males and females of a particular species, both are illustrated. Juveniles of many species are also shown.

Among the fish families illustrated on this poster are: catfish, clinid, emperor, fingerfin, flathead, flounder, grunter, kingfish, kob, moony, moray, mullet, parrotfish pompano, ponyfish, pursemouth, rockcod, rockskipper, seabream, sole, steenbras, and stumpnose.
