Description

Finally, a fish identification book specifically for Hawai‘i’s young fishermen, snorkelers, future marine biologists, and kids simply curious about all the colorful fishes in Hawai‘i. Over 40 of the most popular fishes likely to be seen while out fishing or snorkeling in Hawai‘i’s waters are presented. Each fish is illustrated in a fun, colorful way to help the reader remember its English and/or Hawaiian name. Accompanying each illustration is a photograph by noted experts John Hoover and Keoki Stender, along with a description and fun fact sure to surprise even those who thought they knew everything about Hawai‘i’s fishes—including native Hawaiian uses.

A must-have reference for any young child curious about Hawai‘i’s fishes! Look for Wilfred Toki’s other books Moku and the He‘e of Waimea and Hana and the Honu.
