Coral reefs host an array of life so starling and vast that scientists continue to discover new species of fish in these tropical ecosystems. Self-contained yet sensitive to environmental change resulting from pollution, global climate shifts, overfishing, and unregulated tourism, coral reefs and their inhabitants fascinate marine biologists, conservationists, swimmers, and divers alike.

In over one hundred color photographs, Coral Fish depicts the variety of fish supported by coral reefs around the world. Biology and award-winning photographer Linda Pitkin describes the ways in which fish have adapted to their environment, detailing each group's behaviors as well as their sizes, shapes, and colors. In addition to providing an overview of coral reef formation and development, she also summarizes the threats to coral reef viability as well as steps toward conservation.
