100 Full Colour Plates

Hardback with dustjacket. 56 pages. 1972 reprint. Bookseller stamp, a name in ink and cellotape stains on the inside cover, but otherwise good second-hand condition.

The coastal waters around New Zealand abound in fish of a wide variety of species - some common, some comparatively rare, most of them eagerly sought after by commercial fishermen and by sporting anglers.

The common species are recognised at a glance, as all who have welcomed a snapper or cursed a hagfish will agree; but any waters can provide the occasional surprise, and a simple and reliable reference-book for identification is an essential part of every keen fisherman's tackle.

This book provides all the answers. It illustrates in colour every sea-fish likely to be taken in New Zealand waters. With each illustration goes the species' common, Maori, and scientific names, a list of habitats and salient characteristics, diet, and method of catching.

The pictures are beautiful indeed; they are also scientifically accurate, produced by an artist who is both a keen angler and an expert in painting to the exacting standards of biologists; the text is by the ichthyologist of the Dominion Museum, Wellington. This is a book to satisfy all salt-water fishermen of New Zealand.
