Like the first edition (1993), this modern edition contains: an in-depth introduction to the natural history of freshwater fishes and the southern African context; detailed species accounts, each with a full-colour illustration, distribution map and symbols indicating size and conservation status. A concise description covers identifying features, biology and ecology, conservation status and uses of each species. The only guide to African freshwater fishes, this book is of value and interest to all aquarists, anglers, convervationists, biologists and naturalists, amateur and otherwise. It fills a large gap in the natural history literature of Southern Africa.
