Overview

This guide helps you understand the largest of all ecosystems, the open seas and oceans with a focus on Australia, New Guinea & New Zealand.

The book begins with an overview of oceanography, from the creation of storms and swells, to why the water is blue.

It then identifies the major groups of animals seen on the ocean surface, from bizarre sucker fish and flying fish, through to the glorious gliding sea-birds and the largest of all animals - the whales.

The book concludes with a look at the human exploration of our largest habitat - the open ocean.

My first trip after the virus is as Expedition leader in Tasmania with Coral Expeditions, followed by my role as biologist guest lecturer on the Great Barrier Reef. If you can't go travelling until everything settles down, then until then, here I am doing online guided walks for Noble Caledonia and online lectures for Silversea.
