The South Pacific has long been in need of a comprehensive guide to reef and shore fishes. Reef and Shore Fishes of the South Pacific covers the inshore fish fauna of New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, the southern Gilbert Islands (Kiribati), Tuvalu, Fiji, the Wallis Islands, Tonga, Samoa, American Samoa, the Tokelau Islands, the Phoenix Islands, the Cook Islands, the Austral Islands, Rapa, the Society Islands, the Tuamoto Archipelago, the Marquesas Islands, and the Pitcairn Islands.

It contains accounts of nearly 1,500 species of fishes, illustrated with more than 2,000 colour photographs, taken mostly underwater, (a few drab species are illustrated by only black and white photographs or drawings). Species accounts are headed by the English common name, the scientific name, the author or authors who described the fish, and the date of the description. This is followed by a concise list of the characteristics needed to identify the species, the total length it attains, its distribution, habitat, and in summary form what may be known of its biology. More than 600 references are given for those seeking more information on individual species. The introduction contains a two-page colour spread of the main external features of fishes. An extensive glossary of scientific terms precedes the index.
