Format: Paperback
If the previous "Reef Fish Identification" edition (Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas) is an indicator of this book's quality, I'm all for it! I used to dive in the south Atlantic and used that edition exclusively (after checking out several others) because of the quality of photographs, information, and species coverage. I now dive the south Pacific and have not been satisfied with the current coverage. This book provides a great addition to the Tropical Pacific diver!

This book was recommended to me as a reference guide for an expedition that I will be participating on in the Seychelles Islands. It is excellent, easy to read and understand.

HASH(0x9829c750) out of 5 stars One of the best out there! July 10 2006
By Mr. Stuart N. Gow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book revolutionised fish ID in the tropical South Pacific when it first came out. We live and work in Fiji in the marine environment and have 4 of these on our shelf (for use of staff in the field as well as office)

The only drawback we find is the bizarre choice of common names. There are already a plethora of other books out there with common names fairly well established in Fiji by Lieske&Meyers. Seems to follow more of an Australian theme for these than the prevous Paul Humman books which use the American common names.

But overal a MUST for any diver who visits the Tropical Pacific. If you use it in conjunction with Lieske&Meyers then if you don;t find the fish you're looking at, prepare to be published!

HASH(0x9829c7a4) out of 5 stars Essential reef guide for the Asian Pacific region. Aug. 1 2006
By hupo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding fish ID manual for the Pacific and Indian ocean region. It beats out others books of a similar nature with the number of photos (6 on every page for a total of over 2,500 pics) and the helpful identification notes below each pic along with the average size of the fish, localised habitat(if any)and pictures of the juvenile fish alongside the adult as well distinguishing feature between male and female forms and arrows pointing to distinguishing marks between similar fish of the same species. Fish are easily found from a photo you took or memory, as it places them into 20 identification groups according to body shape. The pictures are not quite the same quality as The Asia Pacific Reef Guide by Helmut Debelius but they are good enough. Unlike most books of this type it is fish specific so does not include any pics of molluscs, crustaceans, cephalopods, nudibranches, corals or other denizens of the ocean. You have to go to his Reef Creatures ID book for that in the excellent 3 volume Reef Set. Great book, highly recommended.

HASH(0x9829cbdc) out of 5 stars Everything you would expect Sept. 10 2011
By R. T. Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Paul Humann is well known in the diving community as setting "the standard" in marine identification. I also understand that Gerald Allen is well known in the area as an "expert" of the tropical pacific waters. This book does not disappoint. I would recommend the Reef Creatures edition also, as this area is well known for its "critters" and anyone who dives in the area will want that also.

HASH(0x9829cbc4) out of 5 stars Reef Fish Identification for the fish watcher Oct. 31 2008
By Jeffrey Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fish watcher, which is to say that I keep careful track of the species of fish that I see on my trips. My wife and I are headed to Bali for a month. This guide was recommended to us. Reef fish of the Tropical Pacific pictures lots of species and covers a very large area. The pictures are fairly good for the purposes of identification. The ranges given for the fish are fairly helpful, but we find it difficult to interpret exactly when a species might occur in our area. Distribution maps would be an improvement. Having said that, this guide may be about the best available for areas of the tropical Pacific for which a specific guide does not exist. jeff

HASH(0x9829cf84) out of 5 stars Very nice book for fish lovers Jan. 8 2015
By Anilao diver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very nice book for fish lovers, I keep it on my desk to classify the fish I have photographed.
The book is well written and organized. The quality of the photos could be a bit better, but fish are really difficult to photograph, so the authors are to be congratulated for taking, gathering organizing and publishind these photos, it is a labor of love and much appreciated by us admirers of fish. Hopefully newer editions will include better digital photos and more species of these gorgerous fish.
