A Photographic Guide to Sea Fishes of New Zealand is the fourth New Zealand title in this internationally acclaimed series of compact, easy-to-use guides that covers much of the flora and fauna of Europe, Southern Africa, New Zealand and Australia. The fishes of New Zealand are part of the Indo-Pacific fish fauna, by far the richest in the world. This book covers many bony (or teleostean) reef fishes belonging to the Super Class PISCES, Class OSTEICHTHYES, and discusses their habits by day and night, their modes of life, diet and relation to their surroundings. Each fish is illustrated with at least one full colour photograph. There is also an authoritative section on Fish Design, as well as Classification.
