This phenomenally successful guide to the wealth and variety of fish in Australia's tropical waters - including the Great Barrier Reef - and south-east Asia has been updated and expanded. The book has sold more than 20,000 copies in its previous editions, and is an invaluable reference for divers and anglers, to both scientists and the lay person; to everyone with an interest in our remarkable tropical fish.
