    As one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, the Mediterranean is rich in wildlife, including a wealth of wonders to be found under the sea. Many visitors are attracted by snorkelling and so, for the first time, this book provides an easy-to-use identification guide specifically aimed at holiday snorkellers. Here you can discover all those eye-catching species of fish and other marine life most likely to be encountered as you explore. Tips are provided on how to enjoy snorkelling and benefit from seeing as wide a range of species as possible. Although the book concentrates on shallow-water sea life, some of the denizens of deeper water are touched upon too.

    Presented in an informative yet readable manner, and richly illustrated throughout, this is the ideal guide for both the casual holiday snorkeller and those with a deeper interest in nature.
