A Photographic Guide to Freshwater Fishes of New Zealand by Stella McQueen is a highly illustrated guide to more than 60 species, complete with distribution maps. The book is a school compact size which makes it ideal to take with you as a travelling companion when going on fishing trips.
The comprehensive text describes the identification features.
This book includes all freshwater fishes, both introduced and native fishes, with useful identification charts at the back of the book for bullies and whitebait (diadromous galaxiids). Rod Morris has gone to great lengths to capture the very best images and numerous colour photographs through the book will assist in identifying the male and female of the species, and the subtle differences between related fishes.
