About this book

This indispensible field guide the most comprehensive of its kind covers nearly 1,100 fish species from the tropical seas around Australia. Each has a photo and concise written account. The book summarises information on marine fishes living in tropical and subtropical Australian seas, including the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Sea, Ningaloo Reef, Lord Howe and Norfolk Islands.

The guide includes photographs in their natural habitats of all species likely to be observed by divers. Information presented includes results of surveys at over 1,500 sites undertaken by divers participating in the Reef Life Survey, and by the authors while cataloguing reef fish faunas around Australia and the wider Indo-Pacific region.

Most species have wide distributions across the tropical Indo-Pacific, many occurring from the Red Sea and Africa in the west to French Polynesia in the east and Japan in the north. The book will be a 'must-have' for divers, underwater naturalists and people going fishing in sites across this large area.
