About this book

Language: Japanese

In this book, more than 80 species of fish are listed in three parts: freshwater, seawater, and deep sea. They are introduced with powerful illustrations and a number of photographs that show the ecology. The feature of this book are the ultra-realistic illustrations that have been carefully reproduced in every detail. Especially on the double-page spreads, the boldly arranged illustrations are impressive. Also, the included photos are the best ones collected from all over the world. It shows off the skill and way of life of fish.

The book features a large number of freshwater fish from each region. Rivers and lakes around the world are home to monster fish that have the necessary abilities to survive in their habitat. The first half of this book covers various regions such as the Americas, Oceania, and Japan, and includes the giant Alligator Gar, which is an exotic species in Japan, the cannibalistic piranha from the Amazon, and Silurus biwaensis of Lake Biwa.

In the shallow seas, we introduce monster fish that have evolved to survive in the open sea, such as the giant basking shark, the barracuda with its sharp fangs, and the giant mud skipper that roams the land. The deep sea, which exceeds 200 m in depth, is a world of deep-sea fish with special abilities that are different from other places. Deep-sea fish with mysterious appearances and abilities are waiting for readers, such as the big anglerfish that freely manipulates a shining fishing rod and shinkai kusauo that can live even at a depth of 8000 m with its bumpy body.
