Description:

The fish and invertebrate species selected for this reef guide to Southern Africa are generally the more common ones encountered along the east and south coast of southern Africa. Each species entry includes the most noteworthy descriptive features, habitat, depth range, diet and, where known, habits, distribution and abundance. The distribution of species includes a general geographical distribution and the distribution in southern Africa, East Africa and the Red Sea. Many of the species described in this book have a wider distribution and may also be encountered in the western Indian Ocean Islands, such as the Seychelles, the Comoros, Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar and the Maldives.

The guide offers 578 species of marine fish, 228 invertebrate species, including corals, nudibranchs, anemones, starfish, snails, crabs, lobsters, worms and shrimps, full-colour photos for easy identification, detailed introductions for each section, with concise descriptions of each species, illustrations to assist with the identification of fish families. While focusing on southern Africa, the book has relevance way beyond and is applicable also to the entire east coast of Africa, as well as the islands of the western Indian Ocean. It is indispensable for divers, snorkelers and rock-pool enthusiasts, as well as fishermen and marine aquarists.
