Announcing the publication of Reef Fish Behavior – Florida Caribbean Bahamas – 2nd Edition
Jacksonville, FL – November 1, 2019 – New World Publications announces a new, updated and enlarged 2nd edition of Reef Fish Behavior – Florida Caribbean Bahamas.
The new 448-page edition includes 588 photos, emphasizes reef fish life cycles, reproduction, cleaning symbiosis, colors & camouflage, senses and sound communications, marine wildlife management plus 16 fish family overviews.
Since the publication of the first edition exactly 20 years ago, notable advances in science have to lead to a greater understanding of reef fish behavior. DNA markers for tracking fish larvae have helped our understanding of larval transport and its crucial role in establishing and maintaining reef fish communities. Lab and field studies in the Pacific has revealed a more complex relationship between species in cleaning behavior. Scientific studies and local conservation efforts in the Cayman Islands and Belize have also yielded new information on grouper and snapper spawning aggregations.
Reef Fish Behavior presents an overview of what is presently known about the nature of reef fishes for recreational divers, underwater naturalists, photographers, and budding marine biologists. It is also meant to serve as a companion reference to Reef Fish Identification – Florida Caribbean Bahamas 4th edition.
The authors Ned and Anna DeLoach have traveled to 20 destinations in Florida, the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Caribbean to gather information for the book. The majority of their underwater time was spent in Bonaire photographing fish behavior daily for months at a time.
Paul Humann and Ned DeLoach, owners of New World Publications and founders of REEF (Reef Environmental Education Foundation), have photographed, authored and published more than a dozen field guides for marine life identification around the world.
