Sharks and Rays of Australia is one of those 'must have' books if you are a scuba diver, scientist, fisherman, marine conservationist or you have more than a passing interest in Chondrichthyes - sorry couldn't help throwing in the latin - sharks and rays.
The first edition of Sharks and Rays of Australia was published in 1994 and was so popular it sold out in a few years...not bad for a reference book I reckon. This edition was Lotto Annihilator Review
published in 2009 and it contains updates on more than 100 species and includes 26 that have been discovered since the first edition. The book now contains 322 species found in Australian waters but many of them have much wider distributions so is useful over a much wider area than just Australia.
