This is the ultimate illustrative guide to the many amazing marine creatures in existence. From brightly colored Scarlet-and-gold star coral, seen along the shoreline of the Atlantic, to the Great White shark, master of the shallow seas, and from the fastest swimmer in the sea, the Pacific sailfish, to the Blue sea slug that catches a ride with passing jellyfish, our seas are teeming with life. As marine scientists begin to penetrate even the most inaccessible of ocean depths, there has never been a better time to learn about the bizarre and beautiful creatures that occupy our seas.

This stunning encyclopedia is a fascinating guide to more than 350 fish and sea creatures from around the world and from every marine habitat: seashore, coastline and estuary; shallow seas and coral reefs, open ocean and deep water. Representation is broad, featuring members of some of the most exciting and successful animal groups in the marine world, including sponges, corals, jelly animals, worms, crustaceans, molluscs, echinoderms, fish, reptiles and sea mammals. Read about the plate-like body armour of creatures that endure the crash of the incoming tide; the reefs that teem with colourful life; the communities that exist at the edge of the contents; and the formidable creatures that hunt in remote waters. Each profile is illustrated with a beautiful watercolour artwork plus a panel which contains a map to pinpoint distribution, and concise information on habitat type, size, breeding and feeding behaviour.

Few marine guides offer such a compelling, informative but ultimately accessible approach to this fascinating subject. With 350 colour artworks that emphasize the complex, intricate and diverse range of sea-life this extraordinary guide to the saltwater life of our planet offers a fascinating insight into the mysteries of the marine realm.
