A Treasury of New Zealand Fishes
by David H. Graham

"This profusely illustrated volume is the life-work of a scientific observer and investigator, and it is at the same time a fascinating book to read. Fishermen will agree that the subject provides endless pleasure by the fireside as well as in practice, and Mr. Graham's work is pre-eminently a fireside book.
The author provides a wealth of information and anecdote which have come from the personal experience of a man who was in love with the hobby that became his profession. This book is The Compleat Angler for which New Zealand enthusiasts have long been waiting and, like that famous classic, it is a treasury of scientific observation and information in addition to the entertainment which is afforded in its pages.
Every fish mentioned in the book is illustrated, and there are over 150 plates from photographs and line drawings."

"This book is full of interesting observations made by the author particularly during his work early last century when he was appointed biologist to the Marine Fisheries Investigation Station, Portobello, in Otago Harbour.
