This is a repost of a story we first did back in fall 2008. Marine Depot would like for us to giveaway one copy of this book to remind you that they still sell this book for cheap and it is still the be-all, end-all atlas of marine fish, currently.
Although it’s been out for a few months we finally got our hands on a personal copy of Rudie Kuiter and Helmut Debelius’s seminal identification guide, World Atlas of Marine Fishes. You can tell by the new mandarin species and cracked out lemonpeel angel on the cover that this book is not recycling the same old material that TFH has been hawking on us for the last decade or two. The book is the same size as the familiar Burgess Atlas but with over 6000 new photographs to look at, we’ll have to spend a whole lot more time in that special porcelain place to even look at them all. The one annoying but inevitable consequence of this new work is these authors having a serious look at ‘taxonomic’ work to confuse us with all kinds of new ‘correct’ scientific names. In either case, the book sells for $120 at most online etailers but Marine Depot still has it on sale for $80 which is quite a bargain considering you’ll never be bored in the bathroom again. Follow the break for full rules on how you can win one of these simply by commenting.
