About The Reef Set: Reef Fish, Reef Creature and Reef Coral

Reef Fish Identification "3rd Edition"

The standard fish ID reference for underwater naturalists and marine scientists since 1989 just got better!

The enlarged 3rd edition has grown by 20 percent including the addition of more than 100 exciting new fish species. The scientifically up-dated text now boasts 825 classic marine life photographs of 600 common and rare reef fish species. The easy to use, quick-reference format designed for divers makes it a snap to identify the myriad fishes that inhabit the waters of Florida, the Caribbean, Bahamas and now Brazil!

Featuring a new durable, cloth-stitched flexi-binding that folds flat for easy use and water-repellent plastic covers.(512 pages 6" x 9" water resistant plastic covers)

Reef Creature Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas "2nd Edition"

The book that has been relied on for a decade to identify the weird and wonderful crabs, lobsters, shrimps, jellies, sponges, tunicates and mollusks that inhabit the reefs is now 30 percent larger!

Our 2nd edition includes 220 new photos of beautiful shells, outrageously camouflaged crabs, a superb collection of exquisite nudibranchs and the most outrageous octopus ever discovered in the Caribbean!

The scientifically up-dated text, illustrated with more than 660 fascinating photos, is the most comprehensive and beautiful visual ID reference published for marine invertebrates of the Florida Caribbean and Bahamas region. (448 pages 6" x 9" water resistant plastic covers)

Reef Coral Identification "2nd Edition"

You know the fishes and can identify the reef critters, but what about the animals that actually form a coral reef? Existing in an abundance of colors and intriguing shapes, these animals are worth a closer look. 530 classic photographs of living specimens and the most current scientific classifications help identify virtually every species of stony coral, gorgonian, fire coral and black coral inhabiting the tropical western Atlantic.

The new 2nd edition includes a comprehensive photo-essay of coral diseases and predation and a photo gallery on coral reproduction. If you want to know more about marine plants, we've got them, too; an appendix with descriptions and photos of 100 species of marine plants is included. Improved cloth-stitched flexi-binding with plastic covers allows book to lie flat. (288 pages 6" x 9" water repellent plastic covers)

        This is a great reference set. Being a new diver, I still encounter lot of fish I've never seen before or an umfaimilar with their various phases. So far, I have been able to find every fish I had a question about in these books. They have great photos and detailed facts about fish, coral, creatures etc. Definately worth the money!

        Comments about New World Publications The Reef Set: Reef Fish, Reef Creature and Reef Coral (3 Volumes):

        The books are well made but heavy. I probably will not take them on trips requiring air travel due to the weight added to a checked bag and too heavy to take all 3 in my carry on.

        While you can't take it with you on a dive, it's great for use after the dive to identify what you saw during the dive. Usually this involves reviewing the images on your digital camera.

        The books are set up so you look for general shapes and descriptions to find the appropriate sections in which to look for your particular fish, coral or "critter."
