While they remain confined to water, fishes in all their variety now exist in an extraordinarily diverse range of habitats. Magnificently illustrated with more than 200 spectacular color photographs and 150 original illustrations, diagrams, and maps, this indispensable encyclopedia reveals the fascinating world of fishes in an authoritative and stimulating way.

I am by no means a marine biologist. I don't particularly think that that is who this book is geared to. I'm just a high school student that has an interest in nature and the physical world. So why did I give it 5 stars? This book is extremely informative. I read it cover to cover and was incredibly surprised by my knowledge (or lack there of) over marine life. I loved this book. It's not really for people that do not appreciate learning as it is pretty wordy and I couldn't pronounce any of the scientific names of the fish. But it is appealing. My little brother enjoyed looking at it just for the pictures, as there are a lot of pictures, and I have to admit I found myself just looking at the pictures from time to time. I gave this book 5 stars because it came to quick and was in really good condition. It was super informative and I learned a lot. It far surpassed any hopes I had for it and I'm glad I spent the money!

This book was extremely helpful to me while I learned all about the fishes at the Aquarium of the Pacific. It is very concise and yet includes every order and family that I ever encountered during my studies. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
