  • World Atlas of Marine Fishes

    This is an invaluable reference book for the great variety of fishes found in the world's seas. As such, it is of value to all fish enthusiasts be they biogeographers and ichthyologists, divers and aquarists or fishermen.

    By Rudie H Kuiter and Helmut Debelius.

    With more than 6,000 photographs of marine fishes, this book sets a benchmark for their identification. It provides the greatest possible coverage and primarily aims to assist people interested in marine fishes and their scientific names or classification. Some 4,200 species are included. The photographs are carefully sized to clearly identify the fish.

    This World Atlas includes both tropical and temperate fishes that are found around inshore coral and rocky reefs, as well as pelagics that visit these waters. Most of the species occur on shallow reefs in tropical seas, with the greatest species diversity in the Southeast Asian regions.

    The larger families of fishes are introduced by a general summary of their distribution and habitat, the number of species in the family, notable facts on their behaviour and aquarium suitability. The smaller families are introduced in combined family groups. Sharks and rays that comprise numerous orders or families with just one, two or a few species are treated as single large groups. In the case of very large families like wrasses, damsels and gobies, separate introductions may be dedicated to each distinctive sub-family.

    Hardback, 720 pages, 21 x 28 cms.

  • 'Free Delivery' Until 6th November

    'Free Delivery'* offer applies to all orders and applies to our Standard UK Delivery services to a UK mainland address. (*applies to MOST*, NOT ALL UK mainland addresses) - *see exceptions - Delivery FAQs

    We use a combination of Royal Mail and Carrier services and usually say guesstimated delivery of 3-5 working days. Some bulkier, larger, or heavier parcels sent by mail may take longer. If your order is time critical we would recommended you upgrade your delivery service to the Priority Despatch/Next working day carrier service - for just £4.00 extra (signature required). However, please be aware we are unable to provide any timed delivery guarantees against delivery services operating outside our control. For further detailed information please see Delivery FAQs.

    Although we aim to despatch all orders promptly, during busy periods, eg: school holidays, Christmas, priority will be given to Upgraded Orders.

    Some areas of the Country (Scotland, Scottish Highlands & UK Islands), BFPO and Non-UK mainland addresses may still be charged, (as defined by the delivery services which vary from company to company and around the UK) this is because Carrier rates are higher and additional charges may also apply to some larger, bulkier or heavier orders. Apologies but a next working day service is not available to all areas of the UK (as defined by the delivery services which vary around the UK). See exceptions and further detailed information - Delivery FAQs.

    We reserve the right to collate multiple orders into one delivery if going to the same address. We are unable to split orders/deliveries if any one item in an order is not available from stock, indicated by 'Despatch due date / Awaiting stock / Stock expected'. So we would usually despatch an order once complete as/when all the items are available from stock to send as one parcel.

    For further detailed information please see Delivery FAQs.
