Scientists at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa discover, describe and name new species of fishes. Much of their work is published in scientific journals, but commercial and recreational fishers, scientists and students need a reference where relevant information is gathered together.
First published in 1989, this authoritative guide is based on the world's biggest and most comprehensive collection of New Zealand fishes, held at Te Papa. The co-authors, who have published over 100 scientific papers on the subject, have combined efforts to make the results of these and other studies available to an international audience.
Now reissued due to high demand for a guide to all families of fishes, from rockpools to the deep ocean, this book provides a set of illustrated keys to assist the accurate identification of 1008 fish species in New Zealand's Exclusive Economic Zone. Each family is described, with line drawings and technical information, including distribution. Sixty-four color photographs are also included.
