    SOLD OUT!
    The print run of 500 books has been sold out! It took about 9 years to do so, and I'd like to thank all those who have bought the book, and I hope it has come in handy! There will be no second print-run, as the book needs updating with new species - I haven't started on that, and do not forsee doing this for a while - so, if you need a local fish guide, please consider the Field Guide to the Marine Animals above.

  • Nudibranchs of the Cape Peninsula and False Bay by Guido Zsilavecz
    Available at R135.00 exclusive of postage and packaging. Click on the menu on the left for more details. Please contact sales@surg.co.za to order your copy!
  • Cape Peninsula Identification Slate
    This waterproof slate covers 50 species often seen on dives, allowing for quick identification during the dive. Please contact sales@surg.co.za to order your copy!

The following book is published by Struik-Nature, and is available from all major South African book stores and on-line stores:
