The Book – on marine life of the Red Sea


ebook on the most common fish species in the Red Sea

ebook on the most common fish species in the Red Sea

We have published the Red Sea snorkeling guide. It contains description of more than 115 common fish species that you are very likely to encounter on your snorkeling trip along the reef at your hotel, or when participating on a snorkeling boat trip.

The book is not the classical systematical description of species, family by family, but guide you through the species most likely encountered on the sand, the top of the reef, in crevices and in the deeper/outer reef. Thus it should be more intuitive to find the name of the species that you met on your snorkeling trip.

We also have some supplemental material for the book readers on this website. You get free access to the material by using the QR codes in the book.

The Red Sea Snorkeling guide – covering Sharm, Hurghada and Marsa Alam coral reefs are for sale as ebooks (pdf) for only EUR 8.00 (+VAT) buy them through Gumroad.

If you have questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
