This guide for scuba divers features some of the most striking and beautiful marine invertebrates inhabiting shallow subtidal waters around the coast of New Zealand. The 155 species superbly photographed by Stephen Wing are commonly found at easily accessible depths, and range widely around the country. The accompanying text provides a succinct description of each animal to aid in identification. A general introduction explains invertebrate diversity and ecology.

Published in association with the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai, and the Ministry of Fisheries.
