Fishes of the New Zealand Region
by Wade Doak

With 122 color illustrations, maps and diagrams

From the Coral Sea north-east of Australia, currents flow down the coast and across the Tasman, sweeping past the northern tip of New Zealand and along the east coast of the North Island. In waters unexcelled for clarity anywhere in the world, Wade Doak has made a remarkable photographic record of fishes found off the New Zealand coast. He has accompanied it with a text, based on underwater research by himself and the new school of diving marine biologists, that gives the reader a fresh awareness of the complex and fascinating lives of the fishes. The photograph of the hapuku, reproduced on the cover was taken at a depth of 180 feet ; others during exploration by night and day, in settings that varied from shallow estuaries to the fairy-like grottos of remote reefs.

"Wade Doak combines the achievements of both amateur and scientist. This is an important scientific work for the many facts it so memorably records, and the fishes whose habits it describes and illustrates."
