About this book

This is the only field guide to the common and distinctive reef, ocean and freshwater fish of the Seychelles islands. A summary of good diving and snorkelling sites in the islands is followed by brief descriptions of the fish and their habits. The main part of the book are the 24 full colour plates illustrating 163 different species. The second edition differs from the first by an improved layout which integrates the colour plates with the text.

By Clive 12 Sep 2015 Unconfirmed Purchase Written for Paperback

This is a small book covering a large subject.
The illustrations are all watercolours and many are poorly painted, making its use for identification difficult.
There are relatively few fish illustrated, e.g the book mentions 9 species of hawkfish but only illustrates one of them.
The Collins book is much more comprehensive but that can be too much information for anyone not already familiar with fish identification.
