Description
By Rudie H Kuiter and Helmut Debelius.

This is an invaluable reference book for the great variety of fishes found in the world's seas. As such, it is of value to all fish enthusiasts be they biogeographers and ichthyologists, divers and aquarists or fishermen.

With more than 6,000 photographs of marine fishes, this book sets a benchmark for their identification. It provides the greatest possible coverage and primarily aims to assist people interested in marine fishes and their scientific names or classification. Some 4,200 species are included. The photographs are carefully sized to clearly identify the fish.

This World Atlas includes both tropical and temperate fishes that are found around inshore coral and rocky reefs, as well as pelagics that visit these waters. Most of the species occur on shallow reefs in tropical seas, with the greatest species diversity in the Southeast Asian regions.

The larger families of fishes are introduced by a general summary of their distribution and habitat, the number of species in the family, notable facts on their behaviour and aquarium suitability. The smaller families are introduced in combined family groups. Sharks and rays that comprise numerous orders or families with just one, two or a few species are treated as single large groups. In the case of very large families like wrasses, damsels and gobies, separate introductions may be dedicated to each distinctive sub-family.

DirDirect is a world-leading online dive shop run by Underwater Explorers based in Portland, Dorset, UK. Underwater Explorers is a dive centre with a striking difference. It was born out of the concept of "Hogarthian" diving, safe and streamlined equipment configuration, using the most robust products available for recreational and technical diving -- but at the same time, keeping it simple. It is based on the concept of "less is more" in diving and acts as an equipment outlet, training facility and source of sound advice.

Thank you for the excellent service and reasonable prices! I will highly recommend your store to my friends.
