A REFERENCE FOR RESEARCHERS, DIVERS AND SNORKELLERS

With almost every fish, shark and ray likely to be seen by divers and snorkellers in the Maldives and Central/Western Indian Ocean,this reference book is the perfect guide to check on those mystery fishes seen during dives.

Illustrated with superb underwater photographs, with most photographs taken in the Maldives, the pages are packed with information relevant

to the Maldives marine environment. The species that vary in colour, or between sexes, are all illustrated with additional photographs.


The introduction explains the basics of fish science, behaviour and evolution and brief text for each species describes points of interest and differences between similar species. There are detailed drawings on fish-features, shapes

and colour patterns. To assist in identifying the family, small, diagnostic silhouettes from the contents page are distributed as thumbprints throughout the book. Fishes of the Maldives Indian Ocean is easy to use, and will hopefully encourage researchers, divers and snorkellers to take greater interest in the smaller species, as well as the large.
