A New Travel-Friendly Fish ID Book for Caribbean Dive TripsToday's airline weight restrictions not only limit the amount of dive gear and cameras you can pack for overseas trips, but also those valuable prized marine life identification books. And with spotty Internet access overseas, it's not like you can look a critter of or fish up easily online. For the divers who still want a book in their hands postdive to look up the fishes they encounter, Paul Humann and Ned DeLoach are offering the travel edition of Reef Fish Identification: Caribbean, Bahamas, South Florida. It's lightweight enough to thrown in your carry-on but rugged enough to withstand frequent saltwater washings on board.

The Travel Edition is the companion to the classic reference Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean and Bahamas. The 132-page, spiral-bound travel book details 281 fish species with 560 brilliant identification photographs in a six- by nine-inch format. Durable, waterproof and tear-proof PVC covers allow for a quick, wet-handed search of species, including their common, scientific and family names, descriptions, identification markings, preferred habitat and the animal's range. Where necessary, multiple photographs display juveniles as well as common color phases.

The list price is $30. Go to and click on "Books" to buy it at Amazon, and our cut of the proceeds goes toward saving the reefs.
