The best field guide to the region and the only one containing all of the newly described species and current taxonomy. Combining Kells' outstanding illustrations with the expertise of both Baldwin and Rocha, who have spent decades studying the fishes of this region, this is an excellent book for amateur enthusiasts, anglers, teachers, aquarium hobbyists, and scientists.

A Field Guide to Coastal Fishes complements the authors' previous texts, making this book the ideal companion for those whose travel includes the wide geographic range that the text covers. The writing style is accessible to all readers. This book will have value for many years to come.
