About Reef Fish Identification - Baja to Panama

Covering some 400 species, the authors (former co-editors of Ocean Realm magazine and co-founders of the Reef Environmental Education Foundation) present a guide that is designed to aid divers in the identification of fish found along the Pacific Ocean reefs off the coastline ranging from Baja, California to the Central American country of Panama. They have organized the material into identification groups that are based upon easily recognized features such as shape, swimming style, and color. Over 500 full color photographs of 400 species are included, often depicting the different life-phases of individual species. In addition to general descriptions and the photographs, entries provide information on size, depth range, abundance and distribution, habitat and behavior, and reactions to divers.

    Comments about New World Publications Reef Fish Identification - Baja to Panama:

    This guide helped identify fish that we saw on a trip to Costa Rica. These fish weren't in the Caribbean guides, nor were they in the Galapagos or Pacific Guides. Sure, there's some repeats, but hey - fish aren't supposed to stay in one geographic area, right?
