Most illustrated books of fishes group the fishes into families, for example, cod or perch. Other books illustrate the fish and list them alphabetically under their common names.
This means to identify the fish, one needs to know something about its family background, or proceed to thumb right through the book. This handbook is different. All 240 species, common to Australian waters, listed here have been grouped into ten easy to follow sections.
