Synopsis

Explore, discover and identify every known species of New Zealand fish in this encyclopaedic and beautifully illustrated guide. The Fishes of New Zealand represents the culmination of decades of collecting and taxonomic research by scientists based at New Zealand’s national museum, Te Papa, in collaboration with specialists worldwide. It reveals the history, diversity, and biogeography of the region’s rich freshwater and ocean life across New Zealand’s vast aquatic environments. Comprising thorough and accessible descriptions of each of the more than 1250 species found in New Zealand waters, this essential four-volume book introduces many newly discovered and identified specimens, and over 140 species new to the area. Each species features diagnostic, taxonomic, distribution and biological detail, accompanied by richly produced photographs, maps, and illustrations. This landmark publication is an indispensable reference for researchers, conservationists, professional and recreational fishers, and anyone interested in the unique aquatic biodiversity of Aotearoa New Zealand.
