Le plsu beau lagon du monde - Book Through 500 photos all taken in New Caledonia by Pierre LABOUTE, the majority of which are underwater shots, the authors share their great knowledge and vast experience of the marine world. The reader is led from the coast to the outer slopes, passing through calm bays, lagoon environments, white sand banks and passes, but also the islets in the lagoon, wild far-off islands inhabited by birds and visited by turtles, volcanoes and finally into the great depths in search of archaic fauna. The reader discovers the most beautiful shellfish, the most amazing and strange behaviour. An index makes research easy.
