This full-colour field guide complements a similar book on the economically important
sharks and rays of Indonesia. It is the result of a collaborative project between the
governments of the United States, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia, and is funded by
the National Science Foundation.
The first comprehensive reference on the sharks and rays of Borneo, it contains
everything you need to know about recognising and identifying the sharks, rays
and chimaeras caught and marketed in Indonesia. Its user-friendly layout contains
information on identifying features, size, distribution, local common names, habitat,
biology and conservation status of 118 species. It is an essential reference for all
shark and ray enthusiasts – including local fishers and consumers, fisheries and
conservation officers and scientists.
Released at the Sharks International conference in Cairns in June, 2010.
"This 12-author work, a collaboration between the US, Australian, Malaysian, and Indonesian governments, is as good and user-friendly a field guide as they come."
