The Rock Pool Fishes of New Zealand
By Chris Paulin & Clive Roberts

This is the first comprehensive guide book to the most accessible fishes of New Zealand fishes of the rocky shore. The narrow intertidal zone provides a highly specialised habitat for over eighty species of fish and nearly two-thirds of these are unique-to New Zealand. Many intertidal fishes have been difficult to identify and some have only been discovered and named recently. This book provides detailed information on identification and distribution, an a summary of the life history and biology of all intertidal fish species and is the culmination of many years work by Museum of New Zealand scientists and other researchers.

Each species is superbly illustrated by Helen Casey, with colour photographs of live specimens provided by renowned wildlife photographers Paddy Ryan and Malcolm Francis. Chris Paulin and Clive Roberts have called on the resources of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa to produce a book that will be invaluable to all who have an interest in the sea shore, including those in the fishing industry, scientists, students and amateur naturalists young and old.
