This is the best Caribbean fish identification book I’ve found. The pictures are great and it includes pictures of juvenile fish too if they look different than the adult version. I also like that it tells you the likelihood of seeing the fish in different areas of the Caribbean (. common in Bahamas, rare in Puerto Rico). We live on St John, USVI and I use this book a lot. When someone describes a fish they saw I will find it in the book and show it to to them to confirm. This is a great addition to my other id books. Paul Humann takes wonderful pictures that help make identification easy! I was able to look up a different fish I saw in Grand Turk, it was an Indigo Hamlet! The book is arranged so you can find what your looking for without a lot of flipping around.

After many years of cruising and snorkeling at some of the best islands in the Western and Southern Caribbean, I was on the quest to find a good reef fish identification book. Hubby and I used a few fish ID cards, you know the plastic ones that you can carry around with you and at times squint really hard to see if there's any resemblance to the fish we had seen underwater.

This book was a wonderful find and has a wealth of information. The book is divided into twelve (12) identification groups (e.g. disc/ovals, silvery, sloping bodies/tapered heads, small ovals, heavy bodies/large lips, odd shaped swimmers, etc). There are many pictures provided and I enjoy seeing the differences between the juveniles or initial stage and the adult or terminal phase. Some of the plain looking juveniles turn into beautiful and colorful adults such as the Parrotfish.

The book also points out distinctive markings on the fish (line drawings) along with color pictures. Within each identification group, there are explanations along with descriptions of distinctive features, habitat and behavior, and reactions to divers. Again, a lot of information in this book and well worth the price.

The book is quite heavy to carry around, but I can see taking this with us and leaving it in our cabin/room and use as a reference at the end of our daily snorkel adventures. There is a lighter version of this book that I also purchased called the Snorkeling Guide to Marine Life (red cover) and about 80 pages in length. This one covers many of the common underwater marine life we've seen while snorkeling. I can see carrying this lighter version in my snorkel bag.

I highly recommend this Reef Fish book with over 500+ pages of beautiful pictures and surprisingly enought detail information to help identify the many underwater marine life. Enjoy!

This is the best Caribbean fish identification book I’ve found. The pictures are great and it includes pictures of juvenile fish too if they look different than the adult version. I also like that it tells you the likelihood of seeing the fish in different areas of the Caribbean (i.e common in Bahamas, rare in Puerto Rico). We live on St John, USVI and I use this book a lot. When someone describes a fish they saw I will find it in the book and show it to to them to confirm.

With the multitude of species that inhabit the carribean reefs, most divers can pick out triggerfish, cowfish, blennies, parrotfish, puffers, etc, but even fewer can really pinpoint the specific species. I, for one, am at a loss for any large silvery fish, which I tend to assume is "a type of jack". This book is extremely helpful for fish ID in that regard, grouping fishes by their body shape and position in the water. My only gripe is that I wish it was spiral bound so that the pages could be laid flat. This book is way too thick and the binding looks too fragile to smash down the pages flatly.

I'm a beginner - novice scuba diver and enjoy underwater photography. I really wanted something that wasn't overly complicated to help me identify various creatures when scuba diving in Jamaica. I bought the series of 3 (Reef Creatures, Coral and Fish) and these were precisely what I wanted. The first few pages have some drawn illustrations to guide you to which class you are looking for and go to that section where there are excellent color photos to help identify the species. Every species listed also has a short blurb to tell you specific identifying features (which can be helpful if the specimen you're identifying was a little varied from the photo), the prevalence in the area, normal dwelling areas (like in coral, near sponges, etc) to be even more specific to help you identify. I've already used this to help me id species from past photographs. They are very comprehensive and easy to use.

My only minor problem and is probably more my fault for not looking at the shipping weights, is that they are a tad heavier than expected. I'm going on another dive trip soon and plan on taking them with me and perusing them between dives and they will definitely require that I lighten my luggage. Together all 3 books (spiral bound with plastic cover) weigh about 5-6 lbs. Comparatively considering prices for other guides which usually had complaints of not being easy to use, no color photos, not enough info., I'm still very happy I bought these. I think the value for the money (purchased used - good to very good condition via Amazon), was more than excellent. Even knowing the weight, I would definitely buy again.

Saw this book in my local dive shop conference room. Was very impressed with the ease of use, yet very comprehensive in the content. My daughter and I use it when we dive in Florida to keep track of what we see. Keeps the dive alive long after we are on shore. I would buy again and recommend this item to friends and family.
