Our seas are host to an extraordinary variety of plant and animal life, but much of it remains mysterious and great imagery is surprisingly hard to find. Alex Mustard is one of the world's leading underwater photographers and his images are so crisp and immediate that the animals seem to swim out of the water towards you. The text addresses the issue of change in the oceans along with tales of oceanography, marine life and human history in the seas and aims to help the reader to get to know the oceans, understand how marine animals live their lives and how they have, are and may well adapt to change.
'[An] arresting set of sea life portraits, each of which could easily stand alone as a character study... This isn't just a two-dimensional aquarium for your coffee table but a study of our oceans and seas, past and present and tentative future.' National Geographic Traveller
