Jacksonville, FL – November 1, 2015 – New World Publications announces a new, updated and enlarged 2nd edition of Reef Fish Identification – Tropical Pacific (first released in 2003). The book features more than 200 additional species, hundreds of improved photos, scientific name changes and range extensions. The popular field guide contains the most current and comprehensive information available for divers, naturalists and aquarists chronicling marine fishes ranging from Thailand to Tahiti.

The new edition includes 2,000 species with 2,500 photographs of fishes in their natural habitat. The user-friendly guide groups species in 20 color-coded identification groups based on similar physical or behavioral characteristics. Multiple photographs for many species show variations in color and markings, life cycle phases and gender. Accompanying species accounts include common and scientific names, family, size, visual descriptions, geographical ranges and distinctive characteristics, making the visual identification of a particular species easier than ever before.

The four author/photographers are among the best in the business. Dr. Gerald Allen, from Perth Australia, has authored more than 30 books and 300 scientific articles. The retired Senior Curator of Fishes worked at the Western Australian Museum for 25 years. Dr. Allen’s authoritative expertise is augmented with images from three of the best-known underwater photographers in the world. Roger Steene, a lifelong resident of Cairns, Australian and the author of many of the most beautiful undersea books ever published, has been on the cutting edge of marine photography for 50 years. Paul Humann and Ned DeLoach, owners of New World Publications and founders of REEF (Reef Environmental Education Foundation), have photographed, authored and published more than a dozen field guides for marine life around the world.
