Reef Fish Identification - Travel Edition - Caribbean Bahamas South Florida.
Jacksonville, FL - September 1, 2011 – Today’s airline weight restrictions not only limit the amount of underwater gear and cameras divers carry to exotic destinations, but also their prized marine life identification books. The digital age is upon us, but divers still want a book in their hands when they return from a dive to look up the fishes they encounter underwater. Reef Fish Identification – Travel Edition – Caribbean Bahamas South Florida satisfies a need in the market for a portable, lightweight field guide rugged enough for luggage, gear bag and boat.
Our new Travel Edition is a companion to the classic Reef Fish Identification – Florida Caribbean and Bahamas – the divers’ standard reference for more than 20 years. The comprehensive, 132-page Travel Edition details 281 fish species with 560 brilliant identification photographs in a 6” x 9” format. At ¾ of a pound it is readily portable, yet packed with plenty of information for even the most advanced fishwatchers. Durable waterproof and tear-proof PVC covers combined with a sturdy plastic comb binding allow a quick wet-handed search for your favorite fishes.
Now divers can leave their larger reference book safely at home and rely on their new Travel Edition for information on each species including their common, scientific and family names, descriptions, identification markings, preferred habitat and the animal’s range. Where necessary, multiple photographs display juveniles as well as common color phases.
