"I have used this book for identifying fishes I have seen underwater. It is one of the best for this purpose since it is handy and comprehensive, containing all likely coral reef fishes in the Caribbean and Indo-Pacific. Most other books contain only a subset. In addition, this guide provides clues for quick and proper identification."—Rainer Froese, Senior Scientist, International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), Philippines
