Sections on each major taxonomic group - e.g. starfishes, crustaceans and molluscs - describe in plain language each animal's morphology, habitat, abundance, distribution, depth range and commercial importance, and introduce and scientific literature. More than 2500 illustrations include colour photos by New Zealand's best underwater photographers, and hundreds of line drawings for extra anatomical detail.
