About this book

This authoritative guide is based on the world's biggest and most comprehensive collection of New Zealand fish, held at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. The co-authors - Te Papa's scientists - who have published over 100 scientific papers on the subject, have combined efforts to make the results of these and other studies available to an international audience.

First published in 1989, this book provides a set of illustrated keys to assist the accurate identification of 1008 fish species in New Zealand's Exclusive Economic Zone. Each family is described, with line drawings and technical information, including distribution.
