Practical, easy-to-use and authoritative, A Guide to the Common Sea Fishes of Southern Africa is the culmination of years of preparation and in-the-field experience. Here, more than 280 of the fishes most likely to be seen or caught in the coastal waters of southern Africa are presented in a manner that will make this book an invaluable companion to anyone with an interest in fish or fishing, angler and biologist alike. Each entry species entry includes: a full-colour photograph of the fish together with its scientific and common names; a detailed description; notes on natural history, incorporating many little-known and interesting aspects of fish behaviour; distribution maps showing both local and world ranges; details of catch restrictions and, where appropriate, angling and spearfishing records.
