The 344 species described in this guide are most likely encountered by recreational anglers and divers, although many are also targeted by professional fishermen. All the species are illustrated in colour as close to as they would appear freshly caught or alive underwater. Illustrations are arranged by family.
The text gives information on numbers, preferred habitat and where on the south-west coast they are likely to be found.
