This new title in New Holland’s award-winning Green Guides series investigates the ever-popular subject of Australia’s sea fishes, which include familiar species such as the anemonefishes, parrotfishes, wrasses, sharks and many more. It contains fact panels covering interesting aspects of the subject, including what these fishes eat, where they live, how they reproduce, and why certain species pack a very poisonous punch, with some of the strongest toxins known in the animal kingdom. The many beautiful images are taken from the author’s own collection, which has been built up over many decades.
