2nd Edition, entirely revised, of CIESM Atlas of Exotic Fishes !

This richly illustrated 365-page volume - fruit of many years of work and exchanges by our international team of ichthyologists - covers 188 exotic fishes, of which 107 were not present at the time of our first edition 20 years ago.

It documents, with the back-up of hundreds of maps and references, a biological world that is changing in front of our eyes at a crazy, unprecedented rate in the Mediterranean Sea. It is also unique in presenting 88 additional fish species that have been too often (mistakenly) listed as exotic. All in all a must-read for all those interested in the fate of our seas.       ORDER NOW
