Overview

Underwater photographs and informative descriptions of over 240 species, including classification, evolution, and best locations to spot them.

"It's a guidebook and more. In addition to providing basic nuts and bolts information on Hawaiian fish likely to be encountered while prowling the reef, Hoover includes many tidbits culled from ancient Hawaiian stories and fishing lore and hints for aquarists. Hawaii's Fishes also includes chapters on the state's undersea environment, fish anatomy, and where to snorkel and dive." - Hawaii Tribune Herald, reviewed by Jim Witty

"This little book is bursting at the seams with good, solid information.... Some of the photos will leave you gasping in disbelief--surely no fish could be so vivid!" - Freshwater and Marine Aquarium; reviewed by Michelle Blanchard

"All in all, it's hard to imagine more useful information in such a small book, and useful to both residents and visitors alike.... The color printing is gorgeous. How Mutual Publishing can deliver this much color at the price is a mystery." - Maui News, reviewed by Harry Eagar

    very good reference source

    if you are a snorkeling or scuba enthusiast, you need to have this book. take an underwater camera then look up the fishes you've spotted. be sure to not only look at the pictures, but read the descriptions. the color variations are accounted for in the text. this book makes your underwater adventures much more meaningful and enjoyable.
