Fiji Reef Fish

The Reef Finder book by Russell Kelly

A large, bright, attractive general use guide that is great for all snorkellers, divers and glass bottom boat passengers to help them find out what type of thing they are seeing – it is colourful and fun, easy to use, and a fantastic addition to a resort library, kids club, or activities centre.

As recommended a Fijian Resort activities coordinator: “I am going through the first few pages and I am really impressed, amazed with the amount of work and effort to be able to put the information and the photos together.

“Great detailed information for our Staff and our Guests. Will recommend these books to other Dive Shops and Resorts. Really great work”

Cost AUD$ 68.95 / US$ 43.38 (plus shipping from USA or Australia to Fiji AU$ 170, and any taxes)

Reef Finder – searchable smartguide to reef life

The Coral Finder 2022 book by Russell Kelly

A guide to hard corals; an aid to scientific identification of coral species in great detail. Probably of more interest to divers than to general reef viewers, but still an interesting addition to a library or resource centre.

“The Indo Pacific Coral Finder delivers easy genus level coral ID anywhere between the Red Sea and Easter Island.Over 1730 images & expanded genus coverage. Updated as of March 2022.”
