The 138 brilliant illustrations by Elaine Heemstra on this poster depict the wonderful shapes, colors and varieties of marine fish found off the southern African coastline close inshore.

Approximately 16% of southern Africa’s coastal fish are endemic species found only in this region. There is often a great deal of color variation between individuals within a species, as well as change in color and body shape from juveniles to adults. Pattern and color differences also occur between males and females of the same species.

The names of all the fish illustrated on this poster are shown in English with their scientific names in Latin. Distribution areas are given together with the maximum size and weight attained for each species. Endemic species are indicated in blue. The status of fish species whose numbers are threatened or vulnerable or where their catch is prohibited or restricted are shown, Where there is a great difference in coloration between males and females of a particular species, both are illustrated. Juveniles of many species are also shown.
