About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

Hong Kong Reef Fish Photo Guide is a handy guide for divers, snorkelers, and nature lovers. It helps readers to identify the marine fishes of Hong Kong which could be encountered in diving hotspots in local waters. In addition, it provides information on the status, distribution, biology and ecology of the species. This book contains descriptions and underwater photos of over 270 marine fishes (some 80% of 350 species of reef fish in Hong Kong) occurring in local waters, and includes 14 new fish records to Hong Kong. Hong Kong Reef Fish Photo Guide aims to help readers to understand the diversity of Hong Kong marine fishes in greater depth and to develop an appreciation for our marine environment.

In general, identification guides of fishes present species according to the phylogeny of fish families, or in other words, the species accounts are arranged according to the taxonomic relationship among the fish families. In this case, the most evolutionarily primitive species such as sharks and rays come first, and the most highly evolved such as puffers and porcupinefishes last. However, for the benefit of target readers of this book, who may not have in-depth knowledge in fish phylogeny, but would like to quickly retrieve identification and information of a particular species, fish families are arranged alphabetically according to the most conventional English common name of that fish family in this book. Angelfishes and boxfishes are illustrated in the early section, whilst velvetfishes and wrasses come later. For Hong Kong Reef Fish Photo Guide, the common name of each fish family is selected according to FishBase.
