Learn the essentials of tropical fish with this useful and portable reference book.

The tremendous abundance of fish seen during a single scuba dive or snorkeling session in the tropics is just staggering. Indeed in some areas there are dozens of species inhabiting only one or two hectares of reef. But whether you get underwater, view marine life from the comfort of a glass-bottomed boat or just visit an aquarium, Handy Pocket Guide to Tropical Coral Reef Fishes provides an excellent introduction to 68 of the most commonly encountered tropical reef fishes.

Written by Dr. Gerald Allen, international authority on reef fishes, it features stunning color shots by some of the world's best underwater photographers.
