Marine Fishes of South-East Asia: A Field Guide for Anglers and Divers by Gerry Allen,Roger and Ruse Jill Swainston



JILL RUSE was born in Western Australia and has nearly 25 years of experiece with wildlife illustration. The book has proven to be an indispensible reference, especially for anglers, divers, and aquarists.

Covers most of south and SE Asia. Very few book cover this subject. This book is illustrated with paintings of many different reef fish as well as fish interesting to anglers. The illustrations are beautiful and are organized by families and also include useful a bit of useful information about each species. I have other dive books which have great photographs that are beautiful to look at, but these illustrations more easily show differences in shape and coloration between related species.

This book contains nearly 2,000 hand-painted illustrations featuring 1,635 individual species. The paintings were completed over a 3-year period and are primarily based on photographs or color transparencies of either live fishes taken underwater or freshly caught specimens. In many cases preserved specimens at the Western Australian Museum have been consulted to ensure accuracy of detail and proportions. The end result is a colorful and highly comprehensive guide to the sea fishes of northern Australia and the adjacent Southeast Asian region.

Upon Swainston's return to Australia in 1996 he continued this work on marine environments. His focus became the integration of science and art in a manner that fostered both an appreciation of the extraordinary beauty of the subject and an understanding of its diversity and complexity. In 1999 he held successful solo exhibitions of his work in Sydney and Fremantle and has since held other successful exhibitions in France, USA and Australia.

Useless as eBook. The design is a detailed image of some fish on one page and the explanation on the facing page. This doesn't work in an eBook. After all I decided to buy the physical book. The eBook was a waist of money.

I bought this book in Indonesia and am very pleased with the quality.

I purchased this book because it was not easy to find for my family in Germany.
I ended up looking through it first because I was curious, and this is really wonderful and has a plethora of information, and illustrations for divers, fishers, or simply a marine enthusiast.
I would recommend it not only for hobby, but as a conversational piece- many people enjoyed looking through it and asking about the fish and reading up on the interesting facts.

The pictures are drown by an artist, can differ a little from what a diver can usually see, but sometimes significantly more than photos. Once defined, you can then google for the real photos to make sure you are right.
