This guidebook is illustrated with over 1,800 underwater photographs, and presents nearly 1,200 species of fish encountered while diving in the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea, from the surface down to depths of 60 metres.

Designed to make it easier to recognize fish in their natural environment, the guidebook supplies information about the morphology, biology and ecology of the species and enables the reader to discover the extraordinary biodiversity characterizing ichtyological fauna in this region.

A reference work for those keen on the subsea world, especially divers, it will also interest a wide range of readers who are simply curious about nature and its treasures.
