About this book

Language: English

Published simultaneously with the 4th edition of this work in Portuguese, this book is completely reformulated and updated. The author fills a fundamental gap in the knowledge of fish worldwide. This is the first large-scale work that allows the identification of more than 1,000 species of coastal marine fish along the Brazilian coast, from the Guianas to Argentina.

This work results from six decades of research efforts inside and outside water, visiting museums, fishing boats, reefs, libraries, rocky shores, aquaria, oceanic islands, mangroves, and beaches. It has benefited from fruitful discussions, stories, experiences, and opinions from scientists, and fishermen around the coast of Brazil and overseas in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
