This "V.I.D." Guide (Video ID) covers the incredible marine biodiversity of this fantastic corner of the South Pacific. The Marine Life of Fiji & Tonga is a comprehensive identification guide to 1272 animal and plant species — except that instead of being a book full of pictures, it's a video with gorgeous real-life footage of each species, and each of the 1739 video clips is labelled with the common and scientific names of each species.
Beautifully filmed and visually engaging, Marine Life of Fiji & Tonga contains pretty much every species you are likely to see, catch or hear about when counting butterflyfish in this part of the world. Three years and more than 3000 dives in the making, this is both an essential tool and exotic entertainment.
