Product Description

The largest, swiftest, highest-leaping, fastest-growing and most migratory fishes on the planet all live in the open ocean. Beautifully adapted to their world, they range from tiny drift fish and slow plankton-straining whale sharks to high-energy, streamlined predators such as tuna and marlin.

Fishes of the Open Ocean, from Julian Pepperell, one of Australia's best-known marine biologists and world authority on oceanic fishes, is the first book to describe these fishes and detail their biology and the complex, often fragile world in which they live.

This unique guide covers all major species including tuna, marlin, swordfish and pelagic sharks, as well as lesser-known ones such as flying fish, lancetfish, sunfish, pomfret, opah, louvar, fanfish and basking sharks.
