5.0 out of 5 stars absolute must Aug. 27 2010
The ultimate reference for snorkeling and diving the Caribbean. Weights an absolute ton but allowed us to name everything (contrary to some of the others diver's guide books!) It is well organized in sections that regroup fishes with similar features or behavior (bottom dwellers vs swimmers, odd shaped vs oval, lips, color etc) so it is very easy to narrow down ID. The schematic drawings that points out specific distinguishing features to look for are great, if you cannot come to a positive identification from memory, at least you know what to look for on your next dive! All the information you want is there : expected depth, size, behavior, reaction to divers as well as description and pictures of juveniles. Coral and Creature books offer the same perfect balance between easy use and rigorous information. A must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reef Set Feb. 5 2010
This set of books has already proven invaluable in identifying the fish I photographed on my first efforts with underwater photography. The layoout is very logical, progressing from the shape of fish to identifying features for the family and then details of different species and stages of growth. The pictures in the book are also helpful as well as colourful. I also used the coral and reef creatures volumes, although not as much and they were as much a joy and eddification as the reef fish volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best set available April 21 2002
If there is one set of reef identification books to own then this one is it. A set of three of the best books available, it contains Reef Fish Identification, Reef Creature Identification and Reef Coral Identification. Throughout the Florida, Caribbean and Bahamas areas there are no better books available. Each fish, creature, coral, grass or algae has it's own full color picture along with a line drawing that points out the defining characteristics of that particular species. With a plastic cover and the pages treated to resist water, it can be taken to the beach or onto the boat without much concern about the water damaging the book.
Each entry has complete information on the fish, creature or coral from size, depth, range and habitat to the level of concern that a diver should have for their safety around it. If you snorkel, dive or just have an interest in identification of the various things that you find on a reef then this set will give you everything you need to identify anything you find. Highly recommended.

While diving and snorkeling, in Jamaica, for a Marine Biology class, this set of books helped me work out the identification of many critters we were looking for and at.

Because of the colour prints, descriptions and layout of the books, I was able to find the most difficult of species we were trying to learn about in a very short period of time. I recommend this set to aument the Eugene H. Kaplan's (Peterson Field Guides) books on " Coral Reefs" and the "Southeastern and Caribbean Seashores."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Reef Set Feb. 20 2002
By A Customer
We have used the Reef Identification series for years and this new update is a great addition -- many more fish are identified. The writeups about each fish are very detailed and explain behaviours and various color shadings well. The photos are excellent, and we have always been impressed by the amount of work and care that have gone into the series. This is the first time we have had the Reef Coral book and are as pleased with it as with the quality of the other two books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin! Oct. 28 2003
By A Customer
I'm sorry that Vincent in Singapore didn't find these books useful, but they don't pretend to be books for those wanting to keep fish in small tanks - they are terrific field identification guides (as per the titles), with excellent photos and details of colour variations, locations, etc. Beautifully presented, and very comprehensive. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars You must have this book! Dec 8 2001
If you need information on Carribean Reef Creatures/Fish/Coral, this is the only book you need.
As an underwater photographer, I am constantly using my set to identify fish and corals. There is no other set of books like this. Now, Paul, when are you doing a Pacific Set????

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for Caribbean ID
Very comprehensive ID collection covering fish and invertebrates. A must have for anyone looking to ID creatures from the Caribbean.

As a marine aquarium hobbyist I was disappointed with this set of books. It doesn't tell you much on the behaviour and characteristic of the fishes, invertebrates and corals. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly complete; a diver's encyclopedia.
We met the trilogy in Little Cayman this year. We could identify everything we saw: coral, fish and creatures. It was our #1 priority for our next dive trip.
