From the Author:

This comprehensive guide to Hawaii's marine vertebrate animals is based on my bestselling book Hawaii's Fishes, a Guide for Snorkelers and Divers. Although Hawaii's Fishes remains in print and continues to satisfy the basic needs of fish watchers in the Islands, I have long wanted to create a larger, more complete reference for the serious underwater naturalist. There is so much more to say! Almost daily I get questions from readers who are seeing species not included in the original book, or who want information on marine mammals, or strange fish behaviors they have observed.



To satisfy these advanced snorkelers and divers--and those who want to be--I have added over a hundred rare and unusual fish species to the original book (for a total of 386--far more than any other popular guide), plus hundreds of extra photos showing all kinds of color variations and interesting behaviors, fascinating first-hand accounts of encounters with marine ani­mals, new chapters on Hawai`i's whales, dolphins, seals, sea turtles and sea snakes, and a wealth of information on how all these animals eat, live, and reproduce.

From the Back Cover:

The Ultimate Guide to Hawaiian Reef Fishes, Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Whales, and Seals features more pictures, more stories, and more species than any other softcover field guide. Clear underwater photos and scientifically up-to-date descriptions make it easy and fun to identify 386 Hawaiian reef and shore fishes. The ten whale, dolphin, and turtle species seen most often in Hawai`i are included too. Indispensible for snorkelers, divers, teachers, students, and anyone else interested in the sea, this is the ultimate identification book for Hawaiian marine vertebrate animals.
But there's more. It is also a gold mine of behavioral information, legends, trivia, and fun facts. Have you ever wondered why spinner dolphins spin? Or how manta rays mate? (see pages 373 and 235) What does it feel like to be stung by a lionfish? (see page 250) Or attacked by a shark! (see page 267) Do you know the smartest fish on the reef? Or why eels tie themselves in knots? (see pages 114 and 196)

Crammed with stories, picture galleries, sidebars, and 965 full-color photographs, this book takes the concept of a fish identification guide to a whole new level. Enjoy!
