The Perth Coast Fish Book is the most comprehensive fish identification guide ever produced for the coastal waters surrounding Western Australia's capital city - featuring over 1,000 colour photographs, and more than 500 descriptions of species found along the Perth Coast between Mandurah and Two Rocks.

This book represents years of research, diving and photography by authors Dr Glen Whisson and Alexandra Hoschke, and is a key resource for fishers wishing to identify their catch; divers and snorkellers working out what fish they observed; marine researchers and citizen scientists needing a detailed reference; and anyone interested in the wonderfully diverse marine environment that exists on Perth's doorstep.

The book also includes a verified list of all fish species ever recorded along the Perth Coast to a depth of 30m, highlighting species endemic to Western Australia, introduced species, those considered outside their normal historic ranges, and species thought to have recently expanded their ranges to the Perth Coast. This list was produced in collaboration with Dr Glenn Moore from the Western Australian Museum, and provides a comprehensive reference list for researchers, management authorities, and fish enthusiasts.
