By John Christopher Fine
Drawing from his direct experience as a diver and naturalist, author John Fine gives a close-up look at the unique and varied organisms that inhabit the sea and often confront the diver/photographer. An inventory of ocean resources is followed by a description of environmental problems threatening the marine world.
