About this book

An exploration of the incredible delights to be found in the world's oceans. Visiting geographic extremities from the Caribbean to the East Pacific, Japan to the South and West Pacific, temperate and tropical Australia through to Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean, this book is a vibrantly illustrated feast of fish, coral and the wealth of exotic animal and plant life to be found in the depths - some of it shown with the aid of a microscopic lens. From aerial views to the depths of huge reefs; from the mid-ocean drifting to tropical lagoons this book is a fascinating photographic journey and includes examples taken during the day and night. This book breaks new ground, as a number of subjects that have never been recorded before are featured here for the first time.
