Some fish from Perhentian Islands

h The list of fish you'll find further is not representative of the fish from Perhentian islands:
- they are the ones I've noticed: the more colorful, the largest, the ones which are diurnal, the ones which live between 0 and 5 meters...,
-
the ones I was able to take a picture of,
- the ones I was able to identify !

More & better pictures are to come !

h For the identification I've used books and publications you'll find a list of in the blibliography.
The identification has been done from the photos so it's rather unsure.
I was not able to identify a number of bluish fish, mainly Labridae and Scaridae.

h The photos has been taken with a disposable camera and a MX10.

On each fish page there is a link to the corresponding page on the FishBase web site. There you'll find a description of the fish and information about classification, ecology, distribution, biology... It hapens that the connection with the FishBase site take some time, so don't be in a hurry and be patient, it's worth it !

h This classification is not very friendly, explanation will come !
