Victoria's Galaxiid fishesVictoria's Galaxiid Fishes

Rudie Kuiter

Galaxiid fishes are of Gondwana origin and well represented in Victoria. In this highly photographic book, all known members are described and illustrated with multiple images, with many apparently new species described here for the first time.

Drawing on thirty years worth of photographs, this book has been written with a clear sense of urgency due to the rapid decline of many species in recent years.

With nearly all natural habitats destroyed and predatory trout recklessly introduced, many species are critically endangered and surviving in headwaters of river basins as highly localised small populations in forested habitats. This book serves to make people aware of these special fishes living in our forests.
