This new edition closes the gap in species accounts. We found a number of species that seemed to continually confuse divers because of their variable colors and markings. For those species we added more pictures to show the variations.
About the Author
In the early 1970s, Paul Humann, then captain owner of the Caribbean's first live-aboard dive boat, Cayman Diver, experienced daily frustration when unable to answer his clients many questions about the host of fish they encountered on every dive. Paul began a crusade to photograph every species he encountered. After working on several projects with Ned DeLoach, the team collaborated to produce this book. In the years that followed the partners dedicated themselves to the endless pusit of capturing new species on film. The result is the 2002 release of the third edition Reef Fish Identification.
