    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    INTRODUCTION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I never wrote a FAQ before this one (and was never tempted to), but Endless
    Ocean grabbed me like no other game, there was no FAQ already and I had some
    time on my hands. The research and writing gave me an excuse to play the game
    a lot. Bigbadwolf got there first though, and his Sealife FAQ and Salvaged
    Items FAQ are still the best-written and easiest to follow.
    
    The Gamefaqs board has been a joy, from the group of European pioneers in
    Nov 2007, through the influx of Americans in Jan 2008 when we went through the
    process of discovery all over again and the steady stream of new players since.
    It's a good place to go for detailed help - don't be scared to join in, it is
    a friendly board and accustomed to new faces.
    
    Many people have contributed to this FAQ - not least those stalwarts who have
    fed me innumerable details about the North American release so this could be a
    properly international FAQ. In a way, everyone who ever asked a question on
    Gamefaqs contributed - because the answer (if I know it) got in here somewhere.
    
    I have tried very hard to avoid giving help where it may not be wanted - so
    sections 3, 5-6, and 9-12 go into progressively more detail. I have so far
    drawn the line at telling readers exactly where to find fish except where they
    are essential to the plot or unlockable. That would be a spoiler too far,
    though I do go a bit beyond the in-game hints.
    
    Don't be surprised if the game takes a long time, it is strangely compelling,
    and the four people I know of who have completed it were all in excess of 200
    hours.
    
    I hope you enjoy this guide. I did.

    UPDATE:
    
    Now that section 16 (Online play) is done, this FAQ is finally complete enough
    for me to promote it to version 1.0.
    
    Oh, and if you didn't notice, I've put a set of maps up on gamefaqs too.
    
    Eagle-eyed regulars will notice there are still some holes: there's plenty more
    could be done on fish behaviour, there are more corals to identify and there is
    that tantalisingly empty section 18 for which I have secret plans. I'm going to
    take my time with those three and enjoy the scenery on the way. Don't expect
    them to be finished any time soon!

    UPDATE:
    
    Three years on, it's pretty clear I won't get much more done on this. I've 
    corrected a lot of Spanish misspellings which Magu_Tapah brough to my
    attention and made a few minor changes. This will have to be the final version.
    
    It's been a pleasure all the way through folks, nice knowing you.

    Intended users
    --------------
    
    Sections 2-4    are really for new players getting into the game, and are
                    as spoiler-free as possible. 
    
    Sections 5-6    provide detailed step-by-step guides to the main plot and the
                    missions. Mostly for people who get stuck and need help.
    
    Sections 7-14   are detailed reference material mainly in support of the plot
                    and missions and the quests for fish and for treasures. Really
                    intended for looking things up rather than reading through. 
    
    Sections 15-17  are supplementary material for enthusiasts and for those who 
                    play online
    
    
    Releases and languages
    ----------------------
    
    Primary         The FAQ is wholly based on the European (English) release, from
                    which all in-game text and names are taken, unless explicitly
                    otherwise.
    
    North America   Both EU and NA English names are given in the walkthrough and
                    reference sections (EU first). NA in-game text is given with
                    the EU text where I have been able to lay my hands on it and
                    where there are interesting differences in content or style.
    
                    Depths and creature sizes are given in both metres and feet. 
    
    Other languages In the reference sections the names of all locations, objects,
                    creatures, treasures, hairstyles and diving gear are given also
                    in French, German, Spanish and Italian. Same goes for the
                    headings of any emails essential to the story.
    
                    These translations are taken from the EU release and may differ
                    from the NA French and Spanish translations.
    
    
    Searching with ctrl-F
    ---------------------
    
                 *  If you are not familiar with how to do this, there are two
                    ways:
    
                    First, you can hold Ctrl and press F to bring up a search box,
                    type in what you want to search for and click 'Find Next' or
                    hit Enter.
    
                    Second, if you are looking at a bit of text you want to search
                    for, highlight that text with the mouse then, while holding
                    down Ctrl, press C (to copy the text), then F (brings up the
                    search box), then V (paste the text in the box) then hit Enter.
    
    In particular, you can search for: 
    
    FAQ sections    by the [section number] from the contents list
    
    Creatures       by common name (in any language)
                    by scientific name (latin name)
                    by position in Guide to Marine Life/Encyclopedia: 
    
                       - where <P41/2> means the second creature on page 41 reading
                         the left-hand page first
    
    Items           by name (in any language)
                    by fragment name (EU English only)
                    by position in the blue Item Box/Footlocker:
    
                       - where <S5/3> means the third item on frame 5 of the item
                         locker
    
    Locations       by name (in any language)
    
                 *  As the five different maps in the game share grid references it
                    does *not* make sense to search for locations except by name
    
    
    Precise locators
    ----------------
    
    References to locations are to the grid on the in-game maps, and include:
    
                  - the map (whether the Main map, Abyss, Ruins, Caves or Wrecks)
                  - the general area (for example, Coral Forest)
                  - the grid reference
                  - the precise location within the square measured in tenths from
                    the bottom left corner - so (3,7) is 3/10 across and 7/10 up
                  - the depth in metres and in feet
                  - a short description
    
    For example the Dolphin Medal is at:
    
      Main Map/Blue Hall(Blue Holes) (L2(8,2),18m,59ft) on top of a plate coral  
     
    There are no precise locators for fish except where they are essential to the
    plot or unlockable. They move around a lot and too much information might
    spoil the game.
    
    
    Text markings
    -------------
                    
    "double quotes" indicates in-game text, which is from the EU (English) version
                    unless otherwise annotated. In-game text has been used wherever
                    possible for descriptive information.
    
                    Of course, all names of characters, locations, creatures and
                    treasures are in-game text as well.
    
    'single quotes' are my own, usually names for unnamed areas
    
    (?)             marks something that is unclear or unconfirmed or speculative
                    except in section 17, where pretty well everything is
                    necessarily speculative
    
    (reference)     marks a reference to an external source. Where it follows a
                    block of indented text, that text is taken from or paraphrased
                    from that source 
    
     *              next to a paragraph indicates something optional, usually
                    either a minor feature or 'trick' in the game, or additional
                    help where people have had difficulties, or something to notice
                    in passing    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    [2] OVERVIEW 
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    You are a new scuba diving Marine Correspondent somewhere in the South Pacific.
    As your companion Catherine points out, this involves little actual work and a
    great deal of swimming around and enjoying yourself getting to know the local
    sea life and oceanography.
    
    From your boat, the Gabbiano, you explore the sea around the island of Manaurai
    (Manoa Lai) which contains hidden caves, ancient ruins, deep waters and a
    sunken ship as well as an extraordinary variety of creatures and many treasures
    you can salvage. 
    
    You can take clients on guided dives, act as photographer for a local
    journalist and find and train several species of dolphin. There is also a
    huge aquarium which you can stock with creatures and swim in.
    
    You help Catherine to fulfil her search for a legendary creature, and take on
    her task of cataloguing and befriending the sea life.
    
    In the course of this, you unlock new equipment, new areas, new creatures and
    new treasures.
    
    The sea changes by day and by night, and uncovers fresh experiences with the
    passing of the months and seasons.
    
    Endless Ocean is an open-ended exploring game, and much of the fun is in
    finding things for yourself. There are no battles, health bars, bosses or
    enemies. You cannot kill or be killed and the only princess in it is entirely
    mythical. 
    
    People who have been diving in life say this gives a reasonably realistic
    impression of the experience. The fish are real fish: their common and
    scientific names, appearance, behaviour, information given about them and where
    you find them are accurate within the reasonable limits of putting them in a
    game.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    [3] PLOT/GAMEPLAY HINTS
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
       Your main guides in the game are Catherine, the marks she makes on the map
       and the emails that you get. If you are stuck the first thing you should do
       is talk to Catherine. Check the map and emails as well in case you have
       missed something.
    
    
    1) I can't explore any more, it won't let me swim any further
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    
       You cannot swim outside the circle on the map which is centred on where you
       dived in. To go outside this you must move the boat and dive from somewhere
       else.
    
       You can move the boat to nearly anywhere on the map, you are not restricted
       to the marked diving sites. 
    
       If you cannot yet move the boat it is a bit early in the game to go
       exploring on your own. Do what Catherine and Alfred tell you for a few more
       dives and you will soon get hold of the keys to the boat.
    
     * The boat will not go on land, in the deep ocean, anywhere that is too
       shallow for it to park or where the access is too narrow for it to get
       through. If you want to go to a place like this, park the boat nearby and
       swim to it.
    
    
    2) I am stuck and Catherine won't talk to me
    -----------------------------------------------
    
       If Catherine won't talk or tells you to leave her alone for a while, hanging
       around the boat or advancing the time will not help. Go for a swim instead.
    
       When you return to the boat usually either Catherine will talk, or there
       will be a helpful email.
    
       If you are still stuck, check your map. If you find a red cross on it - take
       your boat there and dive.
    
    
    3) Catherine won't let me out of the Lagoon, she says I have a job to do first
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       You have just been told how to make friends with fish. Try making friends
       with one. There are plenty around.  
    
    
    4) I am meant to find something unusual at Blue Hall(Blue Holes), but I can't
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       Make sure you are inside the Blue Hall, not on top of it. Swim down through a
       nearby hole if necessary. 
    
       Look around for a shining light on a coral. Investigate.
    
    
    5) My cursor turned yellow/I can see a shiny thing/what are these cartoon fish?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       When the cursor dot turns yellow it just means you are close enough to the
       background to zoom in with "+" to get a closer look. You'll see sand, or a 
       close-up of coral/rock/ship's side etc etc.
    
       When it turns yellow AND rumbles, there's a creature that you can focus on
       with "A".
    
       When it turns yellow AND goes beep there is, very close to you, a little
       coloured glow of cartoon "dream fish". Point at that and zoom in with "+" 
       when it is glowing and you will get a close-up view that includes fish or
       treasure.
    
       The other sort of glow is a bright white glint that can be seen some way off
       - even when the cursor isn't yellow. When you get close to it and the cursor
       does turn yellow you will find one of the ordinary fishy glows, but one that
       definitely has treasure underneath it.
    
       This sounds complicated, but you soon get the hang of it. 
    
    
    6) I found a place that I can't get into ...
    --------------------------------------------
    
       There are three places you can find by exploring but not get into until you
       have acquired a new skill or equipment or some other help. You will not be
       able to get into these areas until they have been unlocked.
    
       They can only be unlocked by following Catherine's guidance through the
       plot.
    
    
    7) I can't find the ... (area off the main map)
    -----------------------------------------------
    
       Four of the five off-map areas are unlocked in the course of the story. At
       the appropriate stage there will be a red cross marked on the map, move the
       boat there, dive, and look around.
    
       If you get an email about a new area but there is no cross on the map you
       need to talk to Catherine; she will mark the map for you.
    
       The fifth area is unlocked when you have explored a certain amount of the
       main map. You will receive an email about it at that point. There is no
       value in looking for it sooner and it is not essential to progressing the
       plot.
    
       Sometimes people have difficulty re-visiting places they have already found
       once. Assuming you know where to dive (they are marked on the map) this is
       almost always because the entrances to two areas are south of the diving
       spot, but when you initially dive from the boat you start facing north. 
    
       Stay in the same position and turn to face south, then swim, and things
       should start looking familiar. 
    
    
    8) Catherine keeps sending me back to the same area
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
       You need to explore more. The plot will move forward at the latest when you
       have found all the 'rooms' (or in one case all of the something-else) in the
       area, and Catherine will prompt you to return to the boat when you have done
       this. 
    
       There is also a 'trigger' event that will move the plot forward if you find
       it. If you still get stuck, check your map or look in the Locations section
       of this FAQ.
    
       If you have 'triggered' completion of an area, Catherine will send you back
       to complete your exploring after the end of the main plot. 
    
    
    9) Catherine wants me to find a ... (creature). I can't find it.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
       Catherine has told you its name and the map reference. Of the four creatures
       you need to find, two appear automatically when you swim to the red cross on
       the map and one you have met earlier in the game, so you should know where
       it is. The other one is harder to find.
    
       You need to dive deeper and approach the red cross from the north near the
       sea bed. Swim through the archway.
    
       If you are still stuck, check out the Sea Life Directory in this FAQ. 
    
    
    10) The ... (fish/bird/creature) won't be friends with me ...
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    
       Most creatures will respond to stroking or prodding. Whales and dolphins
       also respond to whistles. A few will respond only to feeding, and some
       particularly recalcitrant species especially in very deep waters are fond of
       the underwater pen - scribble near them.
    
       When using the pen, remember to click "OK" to complete your writing. If you
       don't, the fish will not be able to see it and will not respond.
    
       To find more information (get more ticks) for a creature you need to make
       friends with it on a different day either in a different location or after
       having gone away and done something else. 
    
    
    11) The ... (dolphin) won't be my partner, I've tried everything ...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       You need two pieces of information on a dolphin for it to be your partner.
    
       Come back on another day and try again.
     
    
    12) When are the different seasons?
    ----------------------------------
    
       - Summer starts 1st June 
       - Autumn/Fall starts 1st September
       - Winter starts 1st December
       - Spring starts 1st March
    
       The notice board on the side of the cabin shows you the in-game date.
    
       You start the game on 1st July, partway through summer.
    
    
    13) How do I get new clothes/hairstyles/gear?
    --------------------------------------------
    
       Some clothes and hairstyles come from finding specific treasures.
    
       Other hairstyles are rewards for photography missions.
    
       Other diving suits and gear are rewards for guided dive missions.
    
       Fins and air tanks are a bit more complicated than that, but still come as
       rewards for missions.
    
    
    13) How do I find treasures?
    ---------------------------
    
       Some treasures are always in the same place. They give off a bright white
       shine that can be seen from some way off - and even through objects. Just
       keep an eye open for this when you are exploring and you will find them.
    
       The rest of the treasures can appear nearly anywhere under a fishy glow. And
       so far nobody knows what it is that makes them appear.
    
       You may want to check out section 12 of this FAQ for more hints. 
    
    
    14) I can't find the ... (fish) 
    -------------------------------
    
       Bear in mind that the best and most fun way to find fish is to trip
       over them by accident while you are exploring. Don't forget to look at night
       and under glows and at different depths.
    
       Until you are down to the last handful to find it is probably not worth
       going in search of a particular creature, as enough of them are seasonal or
       rare that you may be setting yourself too difficult a task.
    
       But check out the detailed sections of this FAQ for more clues if you want.
    
    
    15) Catherine won't let me dive at night
    ----------------------------------------
    
       You can still dive at night if you accept a guided dive request at
       night-time. Your client will lend you a spare lamp.
    
       To get your own lamp, you need to follow Catherine's instructions about the
       dolphin.

    [4] CONTROLS
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    This section details the usual controls for moving around and interacting with
    creatures, treasures and the environment. Other controls are given in the
    detailed sections, so for:
    
       - Camera controls    see Missions/Photography (6.2)
       - Items on the boat  see Locations/Gabbiano   (9.1)
       - Aquarium controls  see Locations/Aquarium   (9.3)
     
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [4.1] TOOLS MENU
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    You will use this often for diving, surfacing and using extra equipment. It
    also contains options for changing game settings. The tools menu is available
    on the boat and underwater, but not when inside the cabin.
    
    
    Open the Tools menu with D-pad (left, right or down)
    
         The menu shows at the bottom of the screen
    
    
    Select option with D-pad (left or right) 
    
         The menu rotates to show the options (some start off locked, but they all
         get unlocked early in the game)
    
         Press (A) to select the one currently at the top
                  
         The options are:
    
         - Dive/Return to boat
         - Food      - to feed underwater creatures or dolphins in training
         - Pen       - to write underwater
         - Camera    - to take photos
         - Whistle   - use the whistle
         - Options   - (see below)
    
         Options that are not available are greyed-out.
    
    Close menu with D-pad (down)
    
    
    Tools/Options
    -------------
    
    Displays a screen with buttons to change the game settings. Click on a button
    with (A) to change that option
    
    
    Change Controller type:
    
         - Normal: (default) restricts the vertical angles you can face
                   This keeps you mostly the right way up.
    
         - Expert: no restriction - you can turn somersaults and swim
                   upside-down. This is likely to be very disorienting for
                   beginners, but it adds a new dimension for experienced
                   players and can be very useful for taking interesting
                   photographs.
    
    
    Compass Display:
    
         - Display: (default) shows compass at the top left of the screen
    
         - Do not display: turns off the compass. This may be useful for:
    
                   - Taking photographs or screen grabs
                   - Playing hide-and-seek in online multiplayer
                   - Adding the thrill of getting hopelessly lost
    
    
    Tool icon display:
    
         - Display: (default) shows the selected tool icon at bottom right
    
         - Do not display: does not display the selected tool icon 
                   This may be useful for taking photographs or screen
                   grabs
    
    
    MP3 playback:
    
         - turn MP3 background music on or off (see section 8.2 for details)
    
    
    Cursor brightness:
    
         - adjust brightness of the cursor (default 100%)
    
    
    Sound settings:
    
         - adjust volumes of music and sound effects (default 100%)
    
    
    Return to default:
    
         - returns all settings to the default
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [4.2] BASIC DIVING
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To dive from the boat
    ---------------------
    
       Open the Tools menu and select "Dive"
    
       - Choose a partner to dive with or "go alone"
    
     * Spin Trick: In some locations you can get the diver to spin by pressing (A)
       as the diver gets to the bottom of the loading screen 
    
    
    Select Music
    ------------
    
       While you are diving down from the boat or through into an off-map area you
       will see a loading screen. The bar at the bottom of the screen shows the
       selected music track (either an in-game track or one from your SD card).
    
       - Use D-pad (left or right) on the loading screen to select a track to play
    
     * See section 8.2 for more about using music from an SD card.  
    
    
    Compass display
    ---------------
    
       The compass at the top left of the screen shows:
       
       - the direction you are facing (compass)
       - the direction of the boat relative to you (flag icon)
       - your vertical posture (yellow marker: at the top=up, bottom=down)
    
       If you move close to the edge of the dive area or open the Tools menu, the
       display expands to show:
    
       - Your depth in metres (or feet)
       - air gauge (after 60 minutes real time you will be returned to the boat)
    
     * Compass Help: Some people have a bit of difficulty using the compass. It
       works just like a compass in real life in that 'N' always points to the
       north, which in the game is always the top of the map. The direction you are
       facing is the one at the top of the compass face where the little arrow
       is. You will get the hang of it eventually. 
    
    Map
    ---
    
       Press (1) to open the map
    
       - the flag icon shows where you dived in
       - the boat icon shows the current location of the boat
       - the red arrow shows your current location and direction
       - animated red dots show the route you have taken 
    
       Press (2) to zoom in/out
    
    
       Press (1) or (B) to close the map
    
    
    Underwater controls
    -------------------
                 
    Posture:      Point the remote in the direction you want to face or swim
    
    Swim:         by holding (B)
    
            *     While swimming (but not in auto-swim) you can execute a spin-roll
                  by pointing to the left (or right) of the screen and then quickly
                  pointing to the other side. It takes a bit of practice to get it
                  just right. This only works in third-person viewpoint.
    
    Auto-swim:    press (-) once to swim continuously, press any button to cancel
    
            *     Lazy Swimming Trick: While using auto-swim, if you cover the end
                  of the wii-remote with your hand and point it away from the
                  screen, your diver will keep going as if you were still pointing
                  in the same place. This can be used for swimming in pointless
                  circles, swimming long distances to uncover the map, or making a
                  cup of coffee when diving into very deep places.
    
    Viewpoint:    press (2) to toggle third-person/first-person viewpoint
    
            *     In first-person you are closer to the action, but it is less easy
                  to gauge the scale of things as there is nothing to compare them
                  with. So everything in the game looks a bit smaller than it is.
                  The diver's body (behind you) is affected by the environment, so
                  you may experience what look like camera problems if an unseen
                  fish runs into you.
    
            *     In third-person you are further from the action and have a better
                  sense of scale, you can also scan through a wider area so this
                  might help with hunting down treasures and small creatures. But
                  the experience is not quite so immersive, for example kelp and
                  soft corals bend out of the way when the camera, not the diver,
                  goes through them. 
    
    
    Surfacing:   "When near the surface, use (A) to look out of the water. In this
                  mode, use the pointer to look around."
    
    Quick turn:  "When underwater, flick the Wii remote to do an about-turn. Useful
                  when you want to change direction quickly"
    
            *     For this, flick the Wii remote vertically. If you flick
                  horizontally you may find you execute a spin roll instead.  
    
    Tools menu:   to drop food, take pictures, use the whistle or pen
    
    
    Food
    ----
    
       Open the Tools menu and select "Food"
    
       You have a maximum of 10 handfuls of food to use on each dive (a counter
       shows at the bottom right of the screen)
    
       Press (A) to drop a handful of food. If you are focussed on a creature, it
       will drop near the creature. If not, it will drop where your cursor is
       pointing.
    
       Some creatures have a good sense of smell and will be attracted to food from
       a distance. Some like their food but not when it is placed directly in front
       of them.
    
       Press (B) to exit.
          
    
    The underwater pen
    ------------------
    
       Open the Tools menu and select "Pen"
    
       Select a colour and draw in the water by holding (A) and
       moving the Wii-remote
    
       - there is a limited amount of ink
       - point at "OK" and press (A) to confirm, the drawing will not stay there
         unless you do
    
       Select the eraser to rub out what you have done.
    
       The drawing will stay there for the duration of the dive. It can be useful
       for
    
       - marking searched areas
       - communicating with others during a multiplayer dive
       - befriending some fish
    
     * If you do lots of drawing during the dive, early ones may disappear if you
       have run over the ink limit. 
    
    
    Return to boat:
    --------------
    
       Open the Tools menu and select "Return to boat"
    
       The map will display showing 
    
       - where you have dived
       - the maximum depth you reached
       - the horizontal distance travelled in kilometres or miles
       - the length of time the dive took
       - the number of new species you have identified
      
       Any new areas of the map you have visited will be uncovered. Including
       adjacent areas of the land or the deep ocean.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [4.3] CREATURES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Most of these controls apply both underwater and on deck.
    
    
    Focus
    -----
    
       Point to a creature with the remote. If the cursor turns yellow and ripples
       (you get a rumble as well) you are close enough to focus on the creature.
    
       Press (A) to focus on it
    
       - you automatically follow its movements when focused
       - brings up the creature's Details bar at the bottom of the screen
       
       Press (+) to zoom in, (-) to zoom out
    
       Press (B) to unfocus
    
    
    Creature details
    ----------------
    
       The Details bar shows at the bottom of the screen when you are focused on a
       creature. It displays "???" if you have not yet identified the creature, and
       otherwise shows its name.
    
       Point at the Details bar and press (A) to show creature details you have
       learnt
    
       - scroll up and down with D-pad
       - click the numbered buttons at the left to show each paragraph
       - paragraphs are available only when you have found enough about the
         creature
    
       To find more about a creature you need to successfully interact with it on
       different days. 
    
       Dolphins have two sets of creature details, one set for species details, and
       one for details of this specific dolphin as a diving partner.
    
    
    Getting to know the creature
    ----------------------------
    
       You get to know ('befriend') a creature by successfully interacting with it.
    
       To interact with the creature when focused on it
       
       - "Pat" (stroke/rub/pet) - hold (A) and shake the remote
       - "Nudge"(tap/prod/poke) - press (A)
    
          A little hand icon will show you the action on screen. 
    
       Also, if you are underwater, you can
    
       - Feed                - Tools/"Food", then press (A) to feed
       - Underwater pen      - Tools/"Pen" and draw near the creature
       - Whistle             - Tools/"Whistle" (effective with dolphins and whales) 
     
         You do not have to be focused on the creature for these to work.
       
       When you have successfully interacted with a creature it will give off small
       sparkles and a 'gloop' noise. A new paragraph of information will be
       unlocked if available and if this is the first time today you have
       interacted with it.
    
       The first time you successfully interact with a creature its picture and
       details will appear in the Guide to Marine Life/Encyclopedia.
    
       Different creatures respond to different actions: most creatures will
       respond to stroking or prodding. Whales and dolphins - and sometimes other
       creatures - also respond to the whistle. A few will respond only to feeding,
       and some particularly recalcitrant species especially in vary deep waters
       are fond of the underwater pen - scribble near them. 
    
     * If you interact with a creature enough, it may give off large sparkles and
       follow you around. Fish that are this friendly can coax identification out
       of other creatures near them.
    
    
    Other actions

    ===============================================================================
    
    [5] WALKTHROUGH
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    The game is not linear. From early on you are free to go anywhere and do
    anything you like on the main map and to take on missions. Things may happen in
    different orders depending on how much exploring you do and what you find. 
    
    But the plot is important for unlocking areas and creatures. 
    
    This walkthrough is intended to cover the *bare minimum* you need to do to move
    the plot forward while receiving all the storyline elements.
    
    NOTES:   If at any point an email does not arrive or Catherine fails to respond,
             just take a swim. Usually this will be enough to move things forward.
    
             In the interests of brevity, the walkthrough does not (mostly) go into
             the exact details of where to find particular locations, creatures and
             treasures. If you are stuck on these, look them up in the reference
             sections of the FAQ:
    
                Section  9 - locations
                Section 11 - creatures
                Section 12 - treasures
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [5.1] WALKTHROUGH - Basic Training
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    1) Start of game
    ----------------
    
       After picking your character's name, gender, hairstyle/colour and depth of
       suntan, you are thrust into a shallow lagoon.
       
       - taught basic controls of posture and swimming 
       - taught how to return to the boat
    
       Back on the boat you meet your companion Catherine Sunday.
    
       - taught how to walk and activate items
       - unlocked save, rest, and email functions in the cabin
    
     * When the end of the day comes, as you cannot yet dive at night, use the
       clock to rest until morning

       Dive from the boat 
    
       - taught how to focus on, view detail of and pat, nudge and feed fish
    
       Swim west towards the red cross on the map
    
       - you see a dolphin, but it swims away
    
       Back on board there is a penguin on the foredeck
      
       - taught how to focus on, view detail of, pat and nudge creatures on deck
       - unlocked Guide to Marine Life (Marine Biology Encyclopedia),

    3) Email from Alfred "Mysterious Manaurai"
    ------------------------------------------
    
                  (NA) "Following Up"
                  (FR) "Manauraï, la mysterieuse"

                  (ES) "Manaurai Misterioso"
                  (IT) "I misteri di Manaurai"
    
       Alfred suggests you look for rare or unusual items in Blue Hall(Blue Holes).
       Talk to Catherine.
    
       Go to the red cross on the map (either move the boat or just swim there),
       and you will find a bright shine on a piece of coral. Go and look at it.
    
       - taught how to look in detail and to pick up objects
       - collected the Dolphin Medal
       - attracted the dolphin to you
    
     * Notice the fishy glow that you saw above the medal. When you see this in the
       game there is something to see underneath it (either fish or treasure). Not
       all treasures shine brightly like the Dolphin Medal did.
    
     * Now that you have done this, these little glows appear all over the map
       every time you dive.
    
       Click on the dolphin to continue.
    
       - it swims off towards the Lagoon
     
       Back on board
    
       - unlocked blue Item Box (Footlocker) on the rear deck for storing items.
    
    
    4) Find the Dolphin
    -------------------
       
       Catherine directs you to the Lagoon. Go to the red cross on the map, 
       click on the dolphin and lead it west to safety.
    
       Back on board
    
       - unlocked sea whistle and ramp
       
       Catherine suggests you use the ramp at the back of the boat to greet your
       new partner. You don't have much of an option here, as your ability to dive
       is greyed-out.
    
       - taught how to train your partner
    
       - unlocks the night diving equipment the next time you go on deck at night
    
     * If you don't go on deck at night straight away, Catherine will prompt you
       to do so after the Caves and before the Abyss
    
    
    5) Dive with the dolphin
    ------------------------
    
       Talk to Catherine and she will suggest you practice diving with your
       partner. Give it a try.
    
       - learnt diving with partner
    
     * If you don't do this, the plot will not move forward properly. Catherine
       will keep nagging until you do it and things will sort themselves out
       eventually.
       
    
    5) Email from Aubrey "Diving Guide: Request"

       you a present
    
       - unlocked the underwater pen. 
    
     * Although the email does not set a time limit for accepting this dive
       request, after a delay of seven days you will not be able to dive until you
       have completed it 
    
    
    
     * Now you have all the equipment and training you need to explore the main
       map, find and befriend the inhabitants and find treasure. 
    
     * Take some time to read the noticeboard on the side of the cabin.

    1) Catherine panics about stocking the Aquarium
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    Conditions: you must have dived with the dolphin
    
       If you have not already identified ten species, do so now and Catherine will
       enlist your help. Take the boat to the red cross on the map and dive in. 
    
       - unlocks Aquarium

                  (IT) "La grotta della leggendaria sirena"
    
    Conditions: you must have dived with the dolphin
    
       Catherine will explain to you about cave diving and mark the map. Go there
       and swim through the tunnel to the south-east.
    
       - unlocked Great Aqua Cave ('Caves')
    
       Explore the Caves as much as you like. Catherine will prompt you to return
       to the boat when you have visited the Caves twice, and have found all the
       named rooms, and have recovered a particular treasure. 
    
     * The plot will still move forward if you don't, but some things will happen
       in a different sequence and Catherine will prompt you later to return to
       finish your exploring.
    
    
    4) Catherine mentions the deep crevasse at G6
    ---------------------------------------------
    
    Conditions: you must at least have entered the Caves for the first time
    
       Move the boat to the red cross on the map and dive straight down in the
       daytime.
    
       - You can't go that deep yet!
     
       Back on board an email from Alfred offers a deep diving mix which Catherine
       gives to you. 
    
       - unlocked Abyss
    
       Dive straight down into the Abyss and explore as much as you like. Catherine
       will tell you that you have finished when you have visited the Abyss twice
       and have found all four caves. You need to dive at night to complete this -
       Catherine will prompt you if needed.
    
     * The plot will still move forward if you don't, so long as you have visited
       the bottom of the Abyss and have visited at night, but some things will
       happen in a different sequence and Catherine will prompt you later to return
       to finish your exploring.
    
    
    5) Email from Alfred "Whale Shark Migration"

                  (IT) "La rotte dello squalo balena"
    
    Conditions: you must at least have visited the bottom of the Abyss and dived at
                night in the Abyss.
    
       Catherine will mark the map for Marige Atoll (Mo'ia Atoll). Move the boat to
       the red cross and dive in the daytime. Click on the Whale shark.
    
       - Unlocks Ruins of Marige Atoll ('Ruins')
    
       Explore the Ruins as much as you like. Catherine will prompt you to return
       to the boat when you have visited the Ruins twice and have found all the
       engraved stones.
    
       If you return to the boat before then, the story will not move forward until
       you have broken through the roof where the bubbles are coming out. You will
       come across this in the course of exploring.
    
     * When you have done that, and caught up with your emails, Catherine will stop
       talking to you. At this point it may be easier to abandon the Ruins and
       carry on with the rest of the plot. You can come back to them later. 
    
    
    6) Email from Douglas "Ghost Ship"
    ----------------------------------
    
                  (NA) "Yoinks! It’s a g-g-ghost ship!"

                  (DE) "Gerücht um Geisterschiff"
                  (ES) "¿Un barco pirata?"
                  (IT) "Nave fantasma"
    
    Conditions: You must have uncovered 60% of the main map by exploring *and* have
                entered the Caves for the first time. There are no further plot
                dependencies, so this can happen at nearly any time.
    
                The 60% of the main map includes the green land areas and the dark
                blue deep ocean areas. To uncover these you need to work your way
                around the edges.
    
      - unlocked Pirate Ship
    
      As the Pirate Ship moves around the map, it can be hard to find. You have
      four approaches:
    
       - find it by accident
       - thorough exploring just below the surface, which is virtually impossible
       - swim to the surface and look around. The ship can be seen a long way off
       - find all parts of the Pirate's Compass, which tells you which squares it
         can be found on 
    
     * Or look up the Pirate's Compass in section 12 of this FAQ to find the answer
    
       When you find the Pirate Ship, swim in to the large hole near the port bow.
    
       - unlocks Ocean's Graveyard (Ship's Rest)
    
       Explore the Ocean's Graveyard (Ship's Rest) as much as you like.
    
    
    7) Find the Shark's Tooth Necklace
    ----------------------------------
    
       Once you have found this, and unlocked the Ocean's Graveyard (Ship's Rest),
       dive in the Ocean's Graveyard (Ship's Rest) at night. 
    
       Swim around enough and you should get a cutscene. If you don't, try this:
    
       Swim through the first large pipe at the north of the sunken ship, keeping
       to the top of the pipe and aiming for the kink at the top right at 
       (H3(0,5),28.5m,93ft).
    
       - unlocked Magu Tapah

                entered the Ruins for the first time. There are no further plot
                dependencies, so this can happen at nearly any time.
    
                The 90% of the main map includes the green land areas and the dark
                blue deep ocean areas. To uncover these you need to work your way
                around the edges.
    
       The email suggests praying before a human face (crag shaped like a human
       face).
    
       Go to the Stone Heads in the Ruins to find the Life Beads (Jewel of Life).
       When you next go to the Ocean's Graveyard (Ship's Rest) in daytime:
    
       - unlocked Orca

    [5.3] STORY - the Whale Trail
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    1) Email from Alfred "Equipment Request"

    Conditions: Breaking the roof in the Ruins
    
       Catherine is moody and talking about her 'purpose in life'. After you have
       read this email, she will stop talking to you.
    
    
    2) Email from Douglas "Find the Green Garden"
    ---------------------------------------------
    
                  (NA) "Kat & the Green Garden"
                  (FR) "Cherche le Jardin Marin!"

                  (ES) "Encuentra el Jardin
                  (IT) "Cerca nel Giardano di Smeraldo"
    
    Conditions: Catherine stops talking to you
    
       Douglas suggests going to the Green Garden. Move the boat to the red cross
       on the map and dive. You will see a shine near a clam shell - go and collect
       the object and return to the boat.
    
       - collected Patrick's pocket watch 
       - unlocked Catherine's purpose in life
    
       From here on, Catherine will direct you on her search.
    
     * this is the one time in the game where someone other than Catherine marks
       the map. The cross appears directly you read Douglas's email, but you have
       to remember to look at the map yourself
    
    
    3) Catherine directs you to the Abyss
    -------------------------------------
    
       Dive down to the Graveyard (Whalebone Chasm) with your dolphin and you will
       find a sample that proves the White Mother exists.
    
     * Catherine will prompt you if you dive without a dolphin
    
    
    4) Catherine directs you to find information about whales
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    
    Conditions: only for whales that you have not already found and identified
    
       Catherine will direct you to any whales you have not already found with red
       crosses on the map. In each case, you need to gather some information on the
       whale. By this stage you know where at least one whale is, and two of them
       unlock automatically when you get to the red cross on the map.
    
       If you have difficulty finding the humpback whale, swim south through the
       archway directly beneath the red cross to trigger the cutscene. 
    
       If there are any whales you have found but not identified (by befriending
       them) Catherine will tell you to find some information about them, but will
       not give you further directions.
    
    
    5) Place the sensors
    --------------------
    
    Condition: wait a day after identifying all the whales.
    
       Catherine will ask you to place five whale sensors in specific places.
       Follow her directions to place the sensors.
    
       If you find Catherine's directions confusing, or have opted not to get them,
       here is where to place the sensors:
    
       - (D2(3,2),8m,26ft) on ball coral in the cutting
       - (H7(4,2),38m,125ft) at the southeast corner of the crevasse
       - (E4(3,7),24m,79ft) on table coral over a precipice
       - (G5(0,4),38m,125ft) on a clamshell (have your whistle handy just in case)
       - (D8(3,0),28m,92ft) behind Atoll deep on a barrel sponge
    
       When you have placed all the sensors, go for a swim. 
    
       An email will arrive directing you to one of the sensors. Take the boat to
       the red cross on the map and swim to where you placed the sensor.
    
       - unlocks White Mother(Ancient Mother)
    
       Swim to the White Mother(Ancient Mother) and click on her with (A)
    
       - unlocks game credits
       - email from Leonard D "treasure trove" prompting you to search for treasures
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [5.4] STORY - loose ends
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Catherine will encourage you to explore areas you have not got to yet.
    
    
    1) Named diving sites
    ---------------------
    
       If there are diving sites you have not already found, Catherine will direct
       you to:  
    
    - "an interesting beach to the east" - Sunshine Beach at M5 
    
    - "a magnificent spot to the west of Coral Forest" - Triple Steps at J2 
    
    - "a large rocky reef after descending Triple Steps" - Rock Land(Rock Bluff) H4
    
    - "a small inlet to the South ..." - the Secret Lake at J9
    
    - "a uniquely-shaped reef to the west" - Knives Reef(Comb Reef) at D5.
    
    
    2) Off-Map areas
    ----------------
    
       If you have not fully explored them, Catherine will direct you to  
    
    - "More to find in the caves ..."
    
       find all named rooms in the Caves and recover the mermaid's treasure
    
    - "more to find in the Abyss, take a look at the fossil near the wall"
    
       find all four caves in the Abyss and find a coelacanth
    
    - "need to check the ruins again ..."
    
       find all stones in the Ruins
    
     * this will unlock the "White Dolphin" email if you have not received it yet
    
    
    If you have not yet uncovered enough of the map to find the ghost ship:
    
    - "uncover more of the map, I'm sure you'll find something"
    
    
    3) On your own
    --------------
    
       You are now on your own. Catherine ceases to be of any help.
    
       There are plenty of fish and treasures to find, missions to do, seasons to
       experience.
    
       Have fun!

    [6] MISSIONS
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Catherine's memo:
    
      "There are two kinds of offer; diving guide and photo request. You can 
       accept these offers any time you like."
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [6.1] MISSIONS - GUIDED DIVES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Summary
    -------
    
       You guide a client on a dive, showing them creatures they want to see.
       Guided dives help you to explore the ocean and let you show off your
       knowledge. Good performance is rewarded by additional diving suits and
       equipment.
    
    
    Requests and results
    --------------------
    
       Dives are part of the service provided by your employer. They are requested
       by email from Aubrey. There is a time limit of seven in-game days to accept
       the request. Each email tells you the name of the client and the area they
       wish to dive in.
    
       If you accept a request the dive takes place immediately after you have
       selected the area to dive in. So if you particularly want to dive by day or
       by night, set the clock first. You do not have to choose the area that the
       client has requested to dive in, but you cannot take a client into off-map
       areas.
    
       You may accept guided dives at night even before you get your night-diving
       equipment. The client will lend you a spare lamp.
    
       On completion each dive is graded:
    
       - (EU) from A-E, where A is the best
       - (NA) from one to five stars, where five stars is the best  
    
       After each dive you will receive:
    
       - an email from Aubrey giving your grade and commenting on your performance
       - a thank-you email from the client if you have performed well
       - possibly extra diving gear from Alfred if you have performed well
    
    
    Objective
    ---------
    
       To impress the client. You should show them the fish they want to see, and a
       variety of others.
    
    
    Grading
    -------
    
       The grade you get depends on how happy your client is, which depends on
    
       - the length of the dive
       - which creatures they are shown
       - how much information you give them about the creatures they see
    
       EU grades are from E to A, NA from one to five stars. You will get a grade:
    
       E (*)     - if you dive and come straight back up without seeing any fish
    
       D (**)    - if you show at least one fish, one the client did not request
    
       C (***)   - if you show the fish the client requested,
                               OR a fish they have a personal preference for,
                               OR enough other fish,
                               OR you stay down for 10 minutes 
                   Catherine will tell you the client is "suitably impressed"
                                                    (NA) "pretty happy"
    
       B (****)  - if the client reacts with positive comments during the dive
    
       A (*****) - if you show the fish the client requested, 
                               AND a fish they have a personal preference for,
                               OR enough other fish
                   Catherine will tell you the client is "absolutely thrilled"
                                                    (NA) "thrilled"
       
      
       Each client has particular preferences for fish they like to see, (see the
       People section of this FAQ for details).
    
       Low grades will attract some pretty sharp criticism from Aubrey, even if the
       client is relatively polite about it.
    
    
    Hints
    -----
    
       Pay attention to what the client says about their preferences. See the
       People section for details of each client.
    
       Do not lose contact with your client, it upsets them. They cannot follow
       you if they cannot see you. So take care they are with you if you dive
       through holes or turn sharp corners. To find them again - look for their
       bubbles. So long as you find them again your grade should not be affected.
    
       If the client expresses frustration at not being able to find the fish they
       asked to see, this may be a clue. Stop and look around - often you will find
       that there is one close by. If they do this repeatedly you might find that
       the fish has been following close behind you all the time.
    
    
    Catherine's memos from the noticeboard:
    ---------------------------------------
    
      "As a diving guide, it's your job to show the client what they want to see.
       Try to point out other interesting things too."
    
      "During a dive, try to give the client some facts about what they are
       seeing. A knowledgeable guide is a good guide."
    
          (open up the information about fish that you show the client and page
           through it)
    
      "To earn the reputation of a good guide, you must really understand the
       client. Pay attention to their reactions."
    
          (learn each client's preferences)
    
      "If the client loses sight of you, I'll let you know, then you should
       regroup as soon as you can. Your reputation is at stake!"
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [6.2] MISSIONS - PHOTOGRAPHY
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Summary
    -------
    
       Photography is a little sideline you have with the journalist Douglas.
       Photography missions encourage you to know where to find fish and to get
       close enough for a good shot. 
    
    
    Requests and results
    --------------------
    
       Photographs are requested by Douglas with a time limit of seven in-game days
       to respond. Each email identifies the species required and also, in the 
       heading, the type of creature it is:
    
       - Close-Up Photo       - will be hidden under a glow
       - Small fish photo     - of small fish
       - Medium Fish Photo    - of medium fish
       - Large Fish Photo     - of large fish
       - School of Fish Photo - of a school of fish
       - Marine Animal Photo  - of creatures that may appear on deck
    
       You do not need to accept the request in advance. You have seven days to
       find and photograph the creature and reply to the email attaching a
       photograph.
    
       On completion each picture is graded 
    
       - (EU) from A-E, where A is the best
       - (NA) no grade given, but verbal feedback from Douglas  
    
       After each dive you will receive:
    
       - an email from Douglas giving your grade and where appropriate attaching
         the published version of your photograph
    
    
    Objective
    ---------
    
       To impress the editor you should photograph the requested creature so that
       it is large and in the centre of the screen. 
    
    
    Grading and feedback
    --------------------
    
       The grading criteria are not entirely clear (and the grade letters are not
       used in the NA release), but:
    
       E ("pretty bad")  - completely missed the point: wrong fish, aquarium photo
       D ("not bad")     - not too bad but doesn't get published
       C ("pretty good") - published in a magazine article ...
       B ("really good") - published as a double-page spread ...
       A ("AMAZING!")    - published as a magazine cover ...
    
       You will get a grade E if you try to use a picture taken in the Aquarium.
       The editors know that you are cheating!
         
    
    Hints
    -----
    
       Be patient.
    
       Know your creatures and where to find them.
    
       Keep the best pictures that you took - the request may come up again. 
    
       Do not over-excite other fish nearby, they may get in the way.
    
       Take pictures in advance of rare creatures. There is no ban on re-using old
       photos.
    
       Take the sort of picture you are asked for. For example, some small fish can
       be found swimming in the open or under glows. A "Close-up" picture must be
       taken under a glow, a "Small fish" photo must be taken in open water.
    
       If you really can't find the creature and you want to get rid of the
       request, you do not have to wait seven days. Send a photo of something else
       instead and put up with the bad grade.
    
       You normally - nearly always - get requests only for fish that you have
       already identified yourself. To give yourself the best chance of success,
       don't be in too much of a hurry to identify fish you won't be able to find
       again easily (or if you do, keep a photo of them handy).
    
       Do it like a professional. Take lots of pictures than select the best later.
    
    
    Close-up photos: You need to find a spot where the creature is large and in the
                     centre of the screen, or can be persuaded to move there. This
                     may not be where you usually find the creature (for example, 
                     the young Harlequin Sweetlips is quite common in the Caves,
                     but for a really good close-up you might want to look near the
                     Secret Lake).
    
                     Many creatures can be persuaded to move by tapping them. But
                     don't try this with sea slugs or frogfish on vertical surfaces
                     as they will fall off.
    
                     It can help to drop some food to tempt them.
    
                     Sometimes you need to be a bit more devious. For example,
                     Firefish tend to swim way off centre, and vanish into their
                     hole when tapped - but be patient, and you can get a good shot
                     just as they come back out of the hole.
    
    Small fish:      It can be very difficult to get close enough for a good photo.
    
                     Fish are less active at night, and less able to run away in
                     enclosed spaces, but the best approach is to persuade the fish
                     to follow you, then swim away, take out your camera and 
                     patiently wait for it to fill the frame. You can move the
                     camera to track it, but do *not* use (A) to 'focus' on it, as
                     this will move you back from the fish.
    
    Medium fish:     Unless they swim faster than you do, it is fairly easy to get
                     a good shot by focussing on the fish with (A). But you'll get
                     a better one by getting ahead of the fish and letting it swim
                     towards you.
    
    Large Fish:      It doesn't seem to be necessary to get the whole fish in shot,
                     but again it is easier to get ahead of them and let them swim
                     forward to fill the frame. 
    
    School of Fish:  You do not need to get the whole school in the photo. You can
                     get a good shot if you get right in among the fish. Feeding
                     can help slow them down, or keep them fixed to the same place
                     for a short while. For fast-swimming shoals it is easiest to
                     position yourself somewhere on their path.
    
    Marine Animal:   You are a bit restricted in the shots you can take on deck.
                     Headshots work well for large creatures, and it may be worth
                     waiting (or prodding them) until they do something interesting.
    
                     Remember that penguins, sea lions, seals and diving birds can
                     also be found in the ocean, where you can get more interesting 
                     shots.   
     
    
    Camera Controls
    ---------------
    
       Open the tools menu with D-pad (left, right or down)
     
       - use D-pad (left or right) to select Camera
       - press (A)
    
       Use (+) and (-) to zoom in and out
    
       Press (A) to take a picture
    
       Press (2) to adjust the camera settings
    
       - select a fixed or floating focus box
    
         by default the focus box is fixed at the centre of the screen. A floating
         box allows you to set the focus on off-centre objects. 
      
       - change the aperture and F-stop
    
         the default f8 gives the greatest depth-of-field (more things in focus) but
         the smallest aperture (less light gets into the camera)
    
         other settings will let you experiment with blurry backgrounds/foregrounds
         and perhaps with better night shots
    
         Focusing on a creature with (A) will put you at the right distance to keep
         it in focus on all settings (?)  
    
       These options are worth experimenting with, but do not seem essential to
       getting good grades in the photography missions.

    [7] PEOPLE AND PLACES
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [7.1] PEOPLE - IN THE STORY
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The people you encounter, whether in person or otherwise, through the game's
    storyline. All character notes are based on or extrapolated from in-game text.
    
    
    Catherine Sunday (Katherine Sunday)
    -----------------------------------
    
       Your companion on the Gabbiano: a moody marine correspondent with a wickedly 
       dry sense of humour. Catherine is your instructor and guide as she gently
       prods you through the story line. She cannot swim and wears a lifejacket at
       all times, but she can read Latin. 
    
       Her father was European and her mother from Paoul (Pelago). She has recently
       returned to Paoul after twenty years in Europe.
    
       (NA) The North American Katherine has the same insecurities, but covers them
       a flow of lively, if slightly nervous, off-the-wall banter.
    
    
    Patrick Sunday 
    --------------
    
       Catherine's late father, who died in search of the white whale. You never 
       encounter Patrick, but you do find his watch and help his daughter.
    
    
    Alfred Tollman (Alfred Thorman)
    -------------------------------
    
       Alfred is the closest thing you have to a boss. Will occasionally ask you to
       do things, reward you for your performance and forward your mail.
    
       He seems fairly easy-going most of the time, but does keep a close eye on
       expenditure. He is well-connected with research institutes.
    
    
    Aubrey Tollman (Aubrey Thorman)
    -------------------------------
    
       Presumably some relation to Alfred.
    
       Aubrey organises guided dives on behalf of the foundation. He will email you
       when a client wants to dive, and again to report the grading of your dive.
       He clearly tells Alfred what you are doing, as you occasionally get rewarded
       for your performance.
    
       Aubrey is fiercely defensive of the reputation of the organisation (or
       perhaps of his own position in it) and gets snappy if you do not perform
       well.
    
    
    Douglas Ribona (Douglas Banner)
    -------------------------------
    
       A childhood friend of Catherine's, he is now a freelance journalist based in
       Kayah who offers you a job taking underwater photographs. He is also an
       expert on the local mythology.
    
       From Catherine's comments after you find the Picture Frame he appears to
       have a second job in hair-care products.
    
       Douglas is remarkably relaxed about life, tremendously supportive of
       Catherine and friendly to you. No matter how bad your photographs are, he 
       never criticizes. Despite your short acquaintance, he readily uses the
       familiar form of address (in the German translation).
    
    
    Unknown Sender (404 ERROR Sender Unknown)
    -----------------------------------------
    
       The author of spooky and threatening anonymous emails when you discover
       pieces of the Intriguing Idol (Deity Idol). 
    
       Claims to have some connection with ancient curses, and certainly seems to 
       know somehow what you have been doing. May not be entirely sane.
    
    
    Prof. Gregorio Mueller (Gregor Mueller)
    ---------------------------------------
    
       Professor of Archaeology at M University/Pelago University. An expert in
       deciphering long-lost languages from tiny fragments of stone, which he can
       then teach to novices in ten minutes flat.
    
       Remarkable.
    
    
    Leonard D.
    ----------
    
       An 'oceanic researcher' who suggests you look for "rich pickings" in the
       sea. This is a clear hint to look for treasures, though his motives are as
       unclear as his credentials.
    
    
    Norisuke Takahishi 
    ------------------
    
       Japanese ethnologist and expert in ancient vases who buys you a new
       swimsuit.
    
    
    The Paoul Jewellers (Pelago Natural History Museum)
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
       Local jewellery experts who offer to buy coral at a large price from
       Catherine. All you get is a diving suit.
    
       (In the NA version Katherine states that the coral could be sold for a lot
       of money, but that we should donate it to a museum instead.)
    
    
    Nikolai Komodo
    --------------
    
       Curator at the Kayah National Museum. A fossil expert who rewards you with a
       diving suit. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [7.2] PEOPLE - GUIDED DIVE CLIENTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The people you take on dives. Their particular preferences are important in
    achieving good grades.
    
    
    Mike Oldman (Will Gayne)
    ------------------------
    
       Grey hair and neat beard. Has been involved with the Global Marine
       Foundation (Marianas Foundation) in the past. He is some sort of
       engineer/inventor who came up with the pen that writes on water. The sort of
       man who has "urgent business".
    
       Married to Anna, who can't swim and isn't remotely interested, which Mike
       finds hard to believe.
    
       Preferences: Likes really big creatures.
    
                    Try him with whales and manta rays, but for some reason he is
                    also tremendously impressed with the Dwarf sawfish.  
                    
    
    
    Yoko Tsuyuki (Yoko Kagura)
    --------------------------
    
       A researcher from Japan, mainly studying animal habitation according to 
       topography. She has straight dark hair and a blue and black suit. Spends
       only one night at a time on the island, so presumably jets in especially to
       see you.
    
       Preferences: "more a fan of large fish than small ones", "I'm a real fan of
                     sharks"
    
                     So big sharks are a good idea.
    
    
    Raymond Berjoux (Victor Durand)
    -------------------------------
    
       A schoolteacher from France with short dark hair and designer stubble. He
       keeps fish at home and has children. Seems to be an experienced diver.
    
       Preferences: likes shoals of fish, as they remind him of children
    
                    Powder blue tang, Pyramid butterflyfish and Bigeye trevally
                    are among his favourites. 
    
    
    Sofia Marini (Pia Marini)
    -------------------------
    
       Ash-blonde with a pink diving suit. A "quite famous" catwalk model from
       Italy who watches too much television.
    
       Preferences: Small fish, as they are cute and elegant; "rare species"
    
                    Anything as small as or smaller than a Bicolour parrotfish will
                    do.  
    
    
    Marina Horta (Carina Ortez)
    ---------------------------
    
       Short dark hair, red and white suit, works as a designer in Spain mainly
       designing diving suits and gloves. Writes chatty emails.
    
       Preferences: Brightly coloured fish
    
                    Best of all, the Mandarinfish/Green Mandarin Goby
    
    
    Michael Lachs (Michael Schoff)
    ------------------------------
    
       Short brown hair. A veterinary surgeon from Germany specialising in the
       treatment of marine animals. 
    
       Michael is unlucky in love: "every time a woman leaves me I head straight
       for the Manaurai Sea". Given the frequency of his visits it might be
       suggested he should stick to penguins.
    
       Preferences: penguins, dolphins and whales

    Republic of Paoul/Pelago Commonwealth

                  (DE) Paoul
                  (ES) Paoul
                  (IT) Baoru
    
       A country of the south Pacific islands, this seems to be loosely based on
       the real Republic of Palau in the western Caroline Islands of Micronesia,
       some 500 miles (800 km) east of the Philippines and 2000 miles (3200 km)
       south of Tokyo.
    
       Palau is something of a haven for scuba divers:
    
          In 1989 Palau was ranked and listed by CEDAM International as the ranking
          Number 1 Underwater Wonder of the World out of the seven underwater
          wonders.
    
          Tourist activity focuses on scuba diving and snorkeling in the islands'
          rich marine environment, including the Floating Garden Islands to the
          west of Koror and the Rock Islands to the south.
          (Wikipedia)
    
       Particular places in and background of Palau feature strongly in the game,
       as do some of the local legends:
    
          The biodiversity of Palau is reflected in Palauan legends, which show a
          close relationship between the Palauans and the many creatures that
          inhabit their land. In the legends, often humans transform into animals,
          such as when a Palauan mother clutching her child turned into a dugong to
          explain the start of this marine mammal, and the theme of transformation
          is very strong. 
          (http://fishnfins.com/Palau.html)
    
       Some of the game locations are closely based on places in Palau for example,
       the Great Drop-Off (the Big Drop-off in real life) and the Blue Holes.

       This city is the capital of Paoul/Pelago. Unlike its real-life counterpart
       of Koror it is large enough to support a giant aquarium, a university
       and a national museum.

       coral reefs.

    [8.2] MUSIC - playing MP3 from SD card
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You can play your own MP3 tracks from an SD card instead of the in-game music.
    
    
    Preparing an SD card
    --------------------
    
       You will need an SD card, there is no need for a special one or a
       particularly big one.
    
       Copy your MP3 tracks onto the card - it doesn't matter if they are inside
       folders or not. It is a good idea to make the file names recognisable, as
       they will show up in the game.
    
       Flip open the little door on your Wii and insert the SD card. If your Wii is
       upright the printed side of the card should be on the right.
    
    
    Controls
    --------
    
    The Stereo:
    
       The stereo can be turned on and off only when you are on the boat
    
       Click on the stereo on deck (behind the deckchair) with (A). You are shown a
       list of the MP3 files on the card, regardless of what folder they may be in. 
    
       - scroll up and down with the D-pad
    
       - select a track with (A) to play it and exit, or
    
       - exit with (B) to turn the stereo off and revert to in-game music
    
       The selected track will start playing, replacing the in-game music
    
    
    Options/MP3 Playback:
    
       This option is only available when the stereo is turned on, but can 
       be used on deck or underwater.
    
       Open the Tools menu, select "Options", and click on "MP3 Playback"
    
       - select "Stop" to pause the MP3 and revert to in-game music
    
       - select "Play" to pause the in-game music and revert to your MP3 track
    
       
    Options/Music volume:
    
       Open the Tools menu, select "Options", and click on "Sound settings"
    
       This controls the volume of SD card music the same as it does for in-game
       music
    
    
    Diving
    ------
    
       If you dive when the stereo is turned on your selected MP3 track is shown as
       the default music selection. But you can still scroll left and right to
       select in-game music.
    
       If you select the MP3 track: 
    
       - the "MP3" playback" setting will be set to "Play"
       - the MP3 track will play repeatedly
       - if you change "MP3 playback" to "Stop" the MP3 will be paused and you will
         revert to the default in-game music. Change "MP3 playback" to "Play" to 
         resume the MP3 track at any time. 
    
       If you select in-game music:
    
       - the "MP3" playback" setting will be set to "Stop"
       - the selected in-game track will play repeatedly
       - if you change "MP3 playback" to "Play" the in-game music will be paused
         and you will revert to the MP3 track. Change "MP3 playback" to "Stop" to 
         resume the in-game music at any time. 
    
       If you have an MP3 track playing when you reach a plot point where new
       in-game music is unlocked:
    
       - you won't hear the new music, because the MP3 track keeps playing 
       - if you change "MP3 playback" to "Stop" the MP3 will be paused and you will
         revert to the newly-unlocked in-game track. Change "MP3 playback" to
         "Play" to resume the MP3 track at any time. 
        
    
    Playing track lists
    -------------------
     
       Only one MP3 track can be active at a time. 
    
       If you want to play more than one track you will have to combine several
       MP3s into one. This is a job for your computer, not the Wii.

                  The album fills up with pictures that you have taken and
                  developed, and with copies of work you have had published as a
                  result of successful photography missions.
    
    Constraints:  The album can hold up to forty (40) photographs
    
                  When it is full you can only add another photograph if you
                  first delete an existing one.
    
                * A photograph can only be used for one mission at a time, and
                  cannot be erased until you have had the feedback for that
                  mission. Sometimes - if you have done a mission but not read the
                  feedback - an old photograph will be 'stuck' in the album with
                  no way of erasing it. So always read your feedback.

    Constraints:  The camera can hold up to twenty (20) photos. Before you can use a
                  photograph you must develop it and place it in the Album.
    
                  Photographs in the camera are not saved when you save the game.
                  To save a photograph you must put it in the album.
    
    Controls:     Click on a photo with (A) to select it, you will see
                  - a thumbprint of the photo
                  - the date and time it was taken
                  - the grid reference and depth it was taken at
    
                  It does not say which map is being used, so G-4 could be that
                  square on the main map, in the Caves etc.

               *  Time passes at about 1 hour for 24 hours when you are on the boat
                  and one hour for 6 hours when underwater.             
    
               *  Using the clock is the only way to move time forward in the game,
                  except for spending time in the natural course of events.
    
    Constraints:  You cannot turn the clock back.
    
                  Using the clock to rest moves time forward but does not trigger
                  events. Any date-dependent events, emails etc will happen only
                  after a dive. If you use the clock a lot without diving, you may
                  miss things.
    
    Controls:     Just click on the clock with (A) to have the option to rest until
                  the next morning or evening.

                  There is less sea life here than in other areas of Manoa Lai, but
                  the chance to spot a whale more than makes up for it!"

                  At the Western edge of the shallow sea that surrounds Manaurai
                  lies this vast shelf. It looks as if the seabed has been sliced,
                  leaving a sheer cliff beyond which lies the South Pacific.
                  Intrepid divers can explore the area below the cliff, which boasts
                  dramatic scenery.
    
                  - Not Ideal for Whale-Watching
    
                  If you are lucky, you may get to see the blue whales which pass
                  through this area as they make their way around the South Pacific.
                  However, it is more suitable for viewing the migrating fish

                  this area is more suited to watching migratory fish."

                  A small inlet where seawater mixes with freshwater. It is not
                  easy to enter as a mass of kelp grows at the entrance almost as
                  if to guard against intruders. The danger of becoming entangled
                  in the kelp makes this area unsuitable for diving. Anyone who

    What's there: A good mix of species in a small area, including seals, 
                  breeding squid and rare seahorses. Not a bad place for

                  Hey ocean dwellers! I know this is gonna sound crazy, but some
                  fishermen in Pelago were talking about a ghost ship. (I know...
                  a GHOST SHIP! It’s the 21st century, for cryin’ out loud! Don’t
                  we have radar and all that stuff?)
    
                  Anyway, I decided to check it, and it seems like a legend started
                  about 40 years ago and just ran wild. Might make a good story for
                  a certain struggling freelance writer, right? Heh heh...
    
                  Lemme know if you find anything.
    
                  Peace out!"

                  of rock formations will appear... Over aeons, natural erosion has
                  created countless caves which make perfect boltholes for all
                  manner of marine life. So investigate Rock Land to add a dash of

    Description: "- A Tranquil Paradise
    
                  A salt lake formed in the glacial age when rain eroded holes in
                  the glacier, letting in sea water. The sea has cut a blind alley
                  into the island, isolating the lake and lending it an eerie
                  tranquility.
    
                  - Sepau Days
    
                  A famous natural phenomenon unique to Manaurai. The tide sometimes
                  draws ocean water into the Secret Lake, bringing entire schools of
                  fish with it. This occurs regularly and brings different types of
                  fish depending on the cycles of the South Pacific, making it the
                  basis of measuring the seasons from ancient times. 'Sepau' means
                  'season'."
    
            (NA) "*** Paradise is Nice! ***
    
                  During the glacial period, erosion created a hole that filled
                  with seawater to form a lake. Like a cul-de-sac of the open sea,
                  this is a prime spot for peaceful meditation.
    
                  *** Seasons of Change! ***
    
                  “Tanga” means “season,” and Tanga Day is a time when specific
                  fish are sucked into the lake by a tidal phenomenon unique to
                  Manoa Lai! This regular cycle of the Pacific was the basis for
                  our first calendar."
    
    What's there: During Sepau/Tanga days you find different schools of fish.
    
                  As it is enclosed it is also a favourite spot for
                  treasure-hunting.

                  by the residue expelled by creatures such as parrot fish after

                  Unlike coral reefs, the beach offers few hiding places for the
                  creatures that make it their home. Most life here seeks safety by

    Mysterious Stones found in the Ruins
    ====================================
    
    
    1) "Stone Inscription"
    ----------------------
    
                  (NA) Cave Stone
                  (FR) Stèle de la grotte
                  (DE) Steinmonumnet aus Höhle
                  (ES) Lápida del fondo de la cueva
                  (IT) Stele della grotta
    
    Location:     Ruins/'Hallway' (G4(4,4),20m,65ft) through low arch to the east
    
    Initially:   "Its made from a material I've never laid my eyes on"
    
    Analysis:    "The inscription is illegible but the composition of the stone
                  itself is quartz diorite, a type of mineral ore not found in this
                  area of the South Pacific. It is highly likely that it was
                  brought here from some distant location, but where this was and
                  how it was carried here are unclear."
    
    Translation: "Eternal sleep covers the earth. The kingdom's fate is decided"
    
                 (NA) "Eternal sleep covers the earth. These are our kingdom’s
                 final days."

                  (IT) Iscrizione sulla stele
    
    Location:     Ruins/Inside the Ruins (E4(8,7),21m,69ft) in a blind alley
    
    Initially:   "The engraved letters are very unusual"
    
    Analysis:    "The meaning of the inscriptions is completely unknown, much like
                  the Rongorongo writing found on Easter Island. This in itself is
                  not unusual among the islands of the South Pacific. What is
                  peculiar, however, is the level of sophistication of the writing.
                  In contrast to the ancient hieroglyphs used by Polynesian and
                  Micronesian people, these characters are rounded and may
                  represent a highly-developed phonographic writing system."
    
    Translation: "seven tribes under the white king. The flood comes forth"
    
                  (NA) "The anger of ancient ones brought flood to the white king
                  of the seven tribes"

    Location:     Ruins/Central Hall (I5(0,2),25m,82ft) in blind alley to the east
    
    Initially:   "I can't make out how many words are written on it"
    
    Analysis:    "We have found a number of similarities between the inscription on
                  the sample and the Woleai script once used on the Caroline

                  impression of a completely different form of writing. It could

    Analysis:    "Our dating of the samples has produced some very unexpected
                  results. We estimate that the inscriptions were made on these
                  rocks at least 5-10 thousand years ago. As these samples were
                  under water there is a wide margin of error. But even allowing
                  for this, our initial prediction that - judging by the
                  sophistication of the civilization - these dated from as recently
                  as 200-300 years ago, has been utterly confounded."

                  technology to make long ocean voyages and left ocean charts of
                  various scales. But on the map, where the Pacific should be

    [10] PARTNERS
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.1] Getting and using partners
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    To get a new partner
    --------------------
    
       When you come across a dolphin that is not your partner, Catherine will
       prompt you to befriend it.
    
       Make friends as usual by patting, nudging or whistling to find more
       information about the creature. When you have two bits of information (you
       will need to come back on a different day for the second) the dolphin will
       appear at your boat the next time you return. Use the Ramp and you will have
       the option to make it your partner.
    
       If you have three partners already you will be prompted to get rid of one of
       them to make room for the new. The next time you return to the boat the
       rejected partner will visit to seek reinstatement or say goodbye.
    
       Once you have given your new partner a name they are ready to be trained or
       to be used when diving.
    
    
    To get an old partner back
    --------------------------
    
       Find the dolphin again and click on it. It will visit the boat next time you
       return and 'ask' to be reinstated.
    
     * If you accept you will have to give it a new name (or remember the old one).
       The dolphin doesn't remember its own name.
    
    
    Using your partner when diving
    ------------------------------
    
       Your partner can help you find creatures and treasures hiding under hidden
       glows. When they find one they will point towards it and make a noise.
    
     * Sometimes it can be difficult to work out what they are pointing at. It is
       easiest to line yourself up behind the dolphin and swim in the direction
       they are pointing.
    
       Use your whistle to call them, tap them with (A) to stop them pointing.
    
       If you are doing this, it helps to keep your partner in sight. Easier said
       than done.
    
    * And don't forget you can ride on your partner by grabbing with (A)+(B)
    
    
    Catherine's notes
    -----------------
    
      "If your partner gestures at something, check that area out as they may have
       found something you'd like to see."
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.2]  TRAINING YOUR PARTNERS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Training
    --------
    
       Use the Ramp on the boat and select a partner to train.
    
       Issue commands to your partner by performing a hand action on their nose or
       fin:
    
          Click on the nose with (A) and then  
    
             Pat nose  - (A)+shake   - forward flip, double forward flip
             Tap nose  - (A)         - spin jump,    corkscrew
             Grab nose - (A)+(B)     - back flip,    double back flip
    
          Click on a fin with (A) and then
    
             Pat fin   - (A)+shake   - sing
             Tap fin   - (A)         - tail walk
             Grab fin  - (A)+(B)     - handshake
    
          You can issue many commands in sequence.
    
       Point the remote at the screen and shake it to execute the commands.
    
       Frequent training will upgrade the nose commands.
    
    
    Other commands
    --------------
    
       Use Tools/Food to feed your partner (reward them for good performance)
    
       Use Tools/Whistle to change which partner you are training
    
       Use Tools/Camera to take photographs of your partner's tricks
    
       Press (2) to change the camera angle
    
    
    Catherine's notes
    -----------------
    
      "Partners improve with practice. At first, they don't jump very high, but
       after a while they'll jump as high as the mast!"
    
      "Keep your partner feeling good to set new records. Play with them in the
       water and reward them for good behaviour."
    
      "Harness your partner's true ability to see improvements in their techniques.
       Daily training is a must!"
    
      "You can take pictures of the training just like when you're underwater.
       Why not get some shots of your partner?"
    
      "Change the viewpoint when your partner is performing techniques with (2),
       then sit back and enjoy a spectacular show." 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [10.3] PARTNER DETAILS 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In-game partner details differ from their species details and are given in full
    here as they may cast some light on the partners' behaviour and the mysteries 
    and legends of Manaurai.
    
    You can only get partner details by befriending your partner, and only get
    species details by befriending dolphins in the wild.
    
    Unlike the species details, the partner details make no claim to scientific
    accuracy, they are there for the purposes of the game.
    
    
    1) Beluga
    ---------
    
    Location:     in the 'Prince's Room' in the Ruins once unlocked
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. A white dolphin that can only be
                  found in a certain place deep within the Marige Atoll ruins.
                  Originally an inhabitant of the Arctic Circle, why it now lives
                  in these tropical waters is unclear and remains as one of the
                  unsolved mysteries surrounding this species. There seems to be
                  some kind of connection between this species and the old
                  bracelet."
    
                 "A gentle personality and overwhelming curiosity like that of a
                  child. People never get bored of watching this creature and it is
                  adorable in everything it does. When it swims, it sings
                  cheerfully using a variety of tones. Going by its current
                  physical appearance it appears to be around ten years old."
    
                 "According to the Manaurai legends, a god in the form of a white
                  dolphin came forth and gave protection to an ancient royal family.
                  White dolphins often appear in the legends that are told in this
                  region. From these accounts we can assume that beluga have
                  inhabited Manaurai since ancient times."  
    
    
    2) Bottlenose Dolphin
    ---------------------
    
    Location:     at Central Hall in the Ruins (also found during basic training)
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. The first dolphin you meet in the
                  waters of Manaurai. It is a little unusual as bottlenose dolphins
                  are rarely seen in these waters. There must be a colony of them
                  hidden somewhere in the vicinity."
    
                 "Playful and full of energy. Constantly makes various speaking
                  sounds underwater and clearly has a talkative personality. This
                  specimen is around ten years old, but others in the species have
                  been known to live more than thirty years."
    
                 "Always held in high regard by tourists, yet in ancient times for
                  the inhabitants of the neighbouring islands of the Paoul Republic,
                  the bottlenose dolphin was once seen as an object of faith and up
                  until around a hundred years ago was not to be approached. But
                  dolphins are curious and tend to approach humans. When this
                  happened it was said that they brought happiness to devout
                  believers."
    
    
    3) Commerson's Dolphin
    ----------------------
    
    Location:     South west of Marige Atoll (Mo'ia Atoll)
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners and a very rare dolphin indeed.
                  Until being discovered around Manaurai in 2007, it was thought
                  only to inhabit two locations worldwide. Can be found in small
                  groups around the shallows of Marige Atoll."
    
                 "Their most attractive point is the two-tone pattern that is
                  similar to pandas. Its rounded body and uniquely-shaped mouth are
                  also charming. It has an active disposition and loves to play,
                  though it can be a little foolish when it comes to danger. It is
                  around eleven years old"
    
                 "The full extent of the Commerson's dolphins' capabilities have
                  yet to be unravelled and only a very few of them inhabit an
                  extremely small, single location only. It is still inconclusive
                  as to whether this species migrated here from another region or
                  is native to the area."
    
    
    4) Common Dolphin
    -----------------
    
    Location:     at Dolphin Rock near Sunshine Beach
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. It lives in coastal regions in
                  shallow water and in small groups. Can be found mostly around the
                  Sunshine Beach area where it feeds on the small fish that live in
                  the sand."
    
                 "Usually a very sociable species that move together as a group,
                  this particular specimen is still only around five years old and
                  is driven by his curiosity, which takes precedence over
                  everything else. Because of these tendencies, it is easy for it
                  to lose its way and become separated from the group." 
    
                 "Of all the dolphin species living around Manaurai, this is the
                  most common. Unlike the bottlenose dolphins, this variety didn't
                  feature in myths very often. These dolphins were once the target
                  of traditional fishing, but this was stopped by the animal
                  protection movement."
     
    
    5) False Killer Whale
    ---------------------
    
    Location:     in or near the White Room of the Caves
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. Living deep inside a large
                  limestone cave, this gallant creature tirelessly protects the
                  mermaid's treasure. This species, belonging to the pilot whale
                  family, is rarely seen in or around the seas of Manaurai."
    
                 "It has the elegance and intellectual appearance of a black knight.
                  When it stares, there is a feeling of detachment. They usually
                  live between fifty and sixty years, but it is not known how old
                  this specimen is."
    
                 "This carnivorous sea creature possesses large fangs which it can
                  use to hunt large-scale prey such as dolphins and whales. They
                  are fearsome and not to be meddled with."
    
    
    6) Orca (Killer Whale)
    ----------------------
    
    Location:     in the Ocean's Graveyard/Ship's Rest around the highest wingtip
                  of the crashed plane (once unlocked)
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. Of all the creatures in all the
                  oceans of all the world, killer whales hold a position at the top
                  of the food chain. The 'Ocean's Graveyard', full of large,
                  dangerous creatures, is the one area for him to feed. There
                  seems to be some sort of connection between him and the Life
                  Beads."
    
                 "Although friendly with dolphins, killer whales stand one rank
                  above, and dominate them like a kind of royalty. However, they
                  have gained the dolphins' trust by offering protection from
                  approaching sharks. Judging by the size of this specimen, it
                  seems to be about twenty years old."
    
                 "Killer whales are ferocious creatures with extremely able
                  fighting abilities and capable of killing polar bears and even
                  blue whales, the largest mammals that ever lived. However, in
                  recorded history, the number of attacks on humans has been
                  exceedingly low. According to Paoul legend, this is because a
                  great human king and the killer whale king made a pact."
    
     
    7) Pacific White-sided Dolphin
    ------------------------------
    
    Location:     Below the Sloping Hallway (Entryway Slope) at E5
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. These dolphins inhabit a single
                  area of Manaurai near Knives Reef. This happens to be the same
                  area as the hammerhead shark, yet the two species co-exist quite
                  happily."
    
                 "The Pacific white-sided dolphin is fearless and full of
                  experience. This species tends to live to be as old as forty.
                  This particular specimen appears to be over twenty. The distinct
                  white markings and protruding sickle-like fins give this creature
                  a very sleek appearance."
    
                 "Not normally present in this area of the South Pacific, this
                  species has been found in recent years inhabiting the area for
                  the first time. Despite the fact that these dolphins are not
                  traditionally found in this region, it is believed that a shoal
                  that once lived in the seas in the northern hemisphere travelled
                  here in search of food." 
    
    
    8) Risso's Dolphin 
    ------------------
    
    Location:     in the Secret Cave in the Abyss
    
    Description: "One of your in-game partners. As with the other members of the
                  pilot whale family, they usually inhabit deep water areas.
                  However, they can just as easily adapt to more shallow water and
                  are often seen at aquariums."
    
                 "Comparatively calm and gentle, and has an even more patient and
                  caring character when among its own kind. It becomes more
                  affectionate the more it becomes attached to something. It is
                  about eight years old, which is still quite young by pilot whale
                  standards." 
    
                 "They inhabit deep water areas and are distributed over vast areas
                  meaning that, they can often even be seen around Manaurai.
                  Although a fairly common creature, it is strangely absent from
                  legends and stories."

    [11.A] GUIDE TO FINDING UNDERWATER LIFE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The best way to find species is by accident. It is more fun that way. But here
    are some tips to help you get lucky:
    
       Most species can be found somewhere all year round, but they may be harder
       to find out of season. Some can only be found at particular times of year.
    
       Try exploring at night as well as in the daytime.
    
       Look carefully and everywhere and at different depths.
    
       Look closely at corals, rocks, walls, floors, sometimes even ceilings
    
       Look in different seasons. Fish rare in one season may be very common,
       indeed unavoidable - in another
    
       Creatures that are rare in one season may sometimes still be found in the
       far reaches of off-map areas or in nooks and crannies 
    
    And perhaps the most important:
    
       Don't forget to re-visit the old familiar places at night and in different
       seasons. For example, it is quite astonishing what you can find in the
       Lagoon sometimes. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [11.B] GUIDE TO FINDING SHORE LIFE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    With two exceptions, all the creatures listed as 'Shore Life' on pages 35-40
    of the Guide to Marine Life (Encyclopedia) appear from time to time on the deck
    of your boat. The exceptions are:
                  
       West Indian manatee - which never appears on or near the boat
       Sea otter           - which appears near, but not on, the boat
    
    The creatures you get on or near the boat depend on where your boat was
    when you last surfaced, taking the centre of the map as the junction of G/H and
    5/6:
    
       North west (G5 outwards) - seals and sea lions
       North east (H5 outwards) - penguins
       South east (H6 outwards) - otters, iguanas and pelicans
       South west (G6 outwards) - elephant seals, walruses and bears
    
    The three flying birds can appear anywhere on the map.
    
    Note that the appearance of creatures is randomised each time you dive:
    sometimes the deck will be empty, sometimes just one creature, sometimes
    teeming.
    
    Look out for young creatures and male/female variations.

                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, protruding snout and a
                  length of 20cm. A yellow body with black and white vertical
                  lines over its eyes."
    
    Location:    "A common fish that can be seen all year round in Manaurai"
    
    Length:       20 cm / 8 in
    
    Found as:     adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary or in small groups. Usually above shallow corals.
    
                  Responds to patting, prodding and feeding.
    
    Other info:  "There are numerous dark stripes on the side of its body. During
                  infancy it has a pattern like that of a round eye which
                  disappears as it matures."
    
                 "Most other members of the Chaetodontidae family like to dwell in
                  southern coral reefs, where water temperatures exceed 20 C, but
                  this fish is known to venture to the far north regions and
                  tolerate temperatures as low as 12 C."

    Behaviour:    Solitary or in small groups. Usually above corals.
    
                  Likes patting and food. Not fond of being nudged.
    
    Other info:  "The English name, teardrop butterflyfish, came from the pattern
                  that resembles a falling teardrop. Living among the coral, it
                  eats polyps using its small, threadlike teeth."
    
                 "This species' body colour differs depending on the spawning
                  ground. However, specimens with characteristics of two species
                  have been found due to the frequent crossbreeding in the
                  Chaetodontidae family, pointing to a need for further taxonomic
                  analysis."

    Length:       16 cm / 6 in
    
    Found as:     adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Swims in shoals. Usually above coral.
    
    Other info:  "This fish has a rare feeding habit for a member of the
                  butterflyfish species. It eats plankton using the thread-like
                  teeth in its small mouth."
    
                 "Just like any other fish that feed off plankton, this species has
                  special comb-like sections, known as 'gill-rakers' inside its
                  gills. These enable the fish to filter out the food from the
                  water, which passes out through the gills."

    Behaviour:    Solitary or in small groups above coral.
    
                  Young - sometimes with adults - are found under glows and prefer
                  enclosed spaces. 
    
    Other info:  "Its patterns differ from infancy and adulthood. During infancy,
                  it has a white, blue and navy-coloured spiral pattern, but on
                  reaching maturity, these spirals become horizontal lines."
    
                 "In recent years, the pattern on this species has been
                  mathematically proven to be a Turing pattern, the theory of which
                  was proposed by Alan Turing. Turing was a great scholar and
                  authority in the field of computer science who leant his name to

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary or in groups, usually near coral
    
    Other info:  "It has small teeth which, in comparison to other fish in the
                  species, are fewer in number. During infancy, they tend to gather
                  in shoals among branches of coral but upon reaching maturity, are
                  to be found around rocky areas and coral reefs."
    
                 "To avoid being attacked while sleeping, this fish takes refuge

    Length:       25 cm / 10 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Swims in leisurely shoals. Lovely shoaling pattern.
    
    Other info:  "The 'surgeon' part of this species' name was given because the
                  spine located on the caudal fin joint of this fish is sharp like
                  a scalpel. They live in areas of coral reef and shoals have been
                  seen in water less than a metre in depth."
    
                 "This species belongs to the Teleostei class which over 90% of all

    Behaviour:    Solitary or in groups. Usually near coral close to deep ocean.
    
    Other info:  "Adult fish have short dorsal and anal fins as well as oval-shaped
                  bodies. Also, the black bands disappear. Their fins become edged
                  with yellow and black in that order and their bodies become
                  silver. They live around coral reefs and can often be seen in
                  groups."
    
                 "Young fish have a distinctive characteristic of mimicking dead
                  leaves, and they increase the effectiveness of this by swimming
                  among driftwood, dead leaves or other floating objects."

                 "As a member of the Zanclidae family, it has an incubation period
                  that is referred to as the 'acronarus stage'. During this period,
                  they take on a distinctive form where their bodies are tall and
                  transparent and the spines on their dorsal and caudal fins are
                  long."

                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, large dorsal and anal
                  fins and a length of 30cm. It is white with numerous black
                  stripes covering its head and body."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all year round."
                  
    Length:       30 cm / 12 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in loose groups. Often found in deeper water near the
                  edge of shallow reefs.
    
                  Responds to patting and is an enthusiastic feeder. 
    
    Other info:  "Using the spines around its caudal fin joint, it can defend
                  itself against predators. Unlike the adult fish, the infant fish
                  are yellow in colour."
    
                 "Like some other species of fish, it is impossible to tell its age
                  just by looking at the external appearance. However, statoliths
                  formed inside the fish from calcified matter and known as 'daily
                  rings' allow us to calculate the age of the fish in days and when
                  it hatched from its egg."

    Length:       20 cm / 8 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary or small groups over shallower coral.
    
    Other info:  "The spines on its caudal fin joint can be made to stand up. The
                  area where the spines are is white. This fish lives among coral
                  and when young, rarely leaves this kind of area."
    
                 "Similar to most fish, these have slightly protruding eyes
                  positioned on both sides of their bodies. Because of this, they 
                  have more than 300 [degrees] visions and are able to spot
                  predators and food easily. To make a comparison, humans have a
                  200 [degree] field of vision."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary and relatively still.
    
    Other info:  "The sides of its body have the outlines of five faint,
                  dark-coloured, unequal markings. It gives birth to its young
                  internally and when they reach about 5mm they leave the parents'
                  body."
    
                 "Young fish spend up to 120 days drifting with seaweed before
                  beginning to live close to the seabed. They change their habitats
                  to deeper and deeper areas as they grow older."

    Length:       20 cm / 8 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Quite a shy little fish. Can be found in other seasons sneaking
                  out from the shelter of table corals.
    
    Other info:  "A partially-enlarged anal fin and a white line running over its
                  dorsal fin are its distinctive features. Also, the scales all
                  over its body are very robust."
    
                 "This species, as well as many other fish, have a wide visual
                  range which allows them to detect things around them. However,
                  they aren't very good at focusing on single, specific objects
                  and have to move their entire head in order to do so."

    Location:    "Can be seen all around Manaurai mostly during the winter."
    
                  Common in winter. One shoal hides away out of season.
                  
    Length:       30 cm / 12 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in loose groups around shallow corals.
    
    Other info:  "When it senses danger, it will hide in the gaps between rocks and
                  lodge itself there using its dorsal fin so as not to be pulled
                  out by predators. This fish lives near coral and feeds on
                  crustaceans and sea urchin."
    
                 "Known in English as the 'orange-lined triggerfish' for the reason
                  that the arrangement of its stripes and its standing dorsal fin
                  are reminiscent of a trigger."

    Location:    "It can be seen all year round in the Blue Hall(Blue Holes) area."
    
                  Tiny young ones can be seen under glows.
                  
    Length:       35 cm / 14 in 
    
    Forms:        young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary, does not move around much. Young are often
                  found in pairs.
    
                  Responds best to patting. Young fish like their food.
    
    Other info:  "Its body is covered in hard, flat scales and it has a large
                  dorsal fin. Lives near rocky or coral reefs and builds a
                  mortar-shaped nest when ready to lay eggs. The eggs are then
                  protected by the adults until ready to hatch."
    
                 "When it senses danger it will swim into the gaps between rocks
                  and coral and lodge itself in using its dorsal and ventral fins
                  to avoid being pulled out by predators. Also it will fill its
                  mouth with water and spit it at the seabed to unearth creatures
                  to feed on."

    Description:  Small purply-brown fish with orange highlights.
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body and a length of 60cm. It
                  has a dark body colour with a white line along its dorsal fin and
                  orange colouring around the caudal fin joint."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all around Manaurai mostly during the Autumn."
    
                  Pointless looking for it until Autumn, when there are plenty of
                  them everywhere there is coral.
                  
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found around shallow corals.
    
    Other info:  "It has a single pair of spines located on the caudal fin joint.
                  When fully grown, the upper and lower sections of males' caudal
                  fins become elongated. Because of the similarities during
                  infancy, telling them apart from other unicornfish can prove
                  difficult."  
    
                 "If a predator approaches, it will stretch out its tail and attack
                  using its sharp spines. Also, if you attempt to touch it with an
                  unprotected hand, you run the risk of sustaining an injury."

                 "It has an oval-shaped body with long pectoral and dorsal fins
                  and a length of 25 cm. Also, its dorsal, ventral and anal fins
                  contain poison. Its body is a light red colour with many brown
                  lines on it."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly in the area south of Green Garden all year

    Length:       25 cm / 10 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found around deeper corals in small groups.
    
    Other info:  "They swim slowly and elegantly but, when prospective prey
                  appears directly before them, they open their vast mouths and
                  swallow it whole in an instant. They live around coral reefs and
                  near the ocean floor and tend to be most active at night." 
    
                 "When they sense danger, they raise their fins to appear
                  intimidating and move to face the enemy. If you provoke them
                  unnecessarily, you'll likely be stabbed and run the risk of the
                  poison contained in their fins entering your body. If this
                  happens, the infected area will swell up and cause acute pain."

    Description:  A thin, white fish with a forward-pointing spike on its head.
    
                 "A narrow fish with a spindle-shaped body, a horn-like protrusion
                  coming from the front of its head and length of 60cm. Its body is
                  a dark grey colour."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly during the winter in all areas of Manaurai."
    
                  Common in winter. A few individuals are hidden away in other

    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually found around shallow corals.
    
    Other info:  "The caudal fin has extended upper and lower regions and two
                  spines protruding from the joint. Infants are oval-shaped, but
                  lack the horn-like protrusion of the adults which appears as they
                  mature. Interestingly, the name of this fish was chosen due to
                  the resemblance of its protrusion to that of a unicorn's." 
    
                 "To prevent their internal water reserves from becoming depleted,
                  fish such as these take in salt water. In its raw form, however,
                  salt water contains large amounts of salt that must be filtered
                  away using the salt water membrane contained inside the gills.
                  Freshwater fish rarely have this salt membrane inside their gills
                  and this makes it impossible for them to live in salt water."

    Length:       40 cm / 15 in 
    
    Forms:        young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Usually found around shallow corals.
    
    Other info:  "Infants and adults differ in colour. Infants are red and are
                  decorated with a black-edged white pattern. The blue spots that
                  adorn adults fade as the fish reaches old age and the spots on
                  their heads disappear." 
    
                 "This fish can be the cause of food poisoning as it carries
                  ciguatoxin. Although it is rare for it to lead to death, it does
                  take a long time to recover from. the fish is not born with the
                  poison in its body but instead receives it by eating poison algae
                  or other fish that do contain poison."

    Length:       25 cm / 15 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Likes enclosed spaces. Usually solitary except in one
                  particular place.
    
    Other info:  "There are many variations on body colour, even yellow fish exist.
                  Whichever colour their bodies are however, the dark speckled
                  markings remain constant across the species. People say that, if
                  you look at the fish face-on, it resembles a dog's face."
    
                 "When startled, it sucks in water making it swell and the many
                  spines all over its body stand on end. Although it usually swims
                  at a very leisurely pace, when in danger it is capable of moving
                  quickly over short distances."

                  (ES) Pez loro bicolor
                  (IT) Pesce papagallo bicolore
    
    Description:  A matt blue fish with barely visible tinges of pink, and the
                  epitome of "spindle-shaped".
    
                 "A narrow fish with a spindle-shaped body and a length of 70cm.
                  The front portion of its head is round and its body is dark blue
                  with pink edges to its scales."
    
                  The young are tiny white-and-orange things hiding under glows. 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen at the Lagoon all year round."
    
                  Can be seen nearly everywhere. It is quite difficult to dive
                  without finding yet another one. 
          
    Length:       70 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary and leisurely unless excited. Usually around corals but
                  can be found near the sea bed in some deeper areas.
    
                  Responds well to patting and will happily feed even when the food
                  is offered at a distance.
    
    Other info:  "It has a beak-like mouth with teeth that grip on both sides. 
                  Males, females and infants all differ in colour. Infants are
                  white with an orange stripe on their heads, females are yellow
                  with black around the edges of their scales."
    
                 "It pulls algae from coral and uses the teeth inside its throat to
                  grind it up for food. After that, the ground-up coral can be
                  excreted out of its body. The white sand that is found around
                  coral is said to be the same as that excreted by this fish."

                  (IT) Pesce papagallo di Bower
    
    Description:  Small green-and-orange fish. Particularly impressive in
                  artificial light.
    
                 "A narrow fish with a spindle-shaped body and a length of 35cm.
                  The front part of its head is round. Its body is green and it has
                  an orange pattern behind its eyes."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all around Manaurai mostly during the summer."
          
    Length:       35 cm / 14 in 
    
    Forms:        young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Can be found in groups in the south-east, but otherwise usually
                  solitary and not particularly easy to find. When on their own
                  they usually keep close to the edge of shallow reefs.
    
    Other info:  "It has a beak-like mouth with teeth that grip on both sides. It
                  lives close to coral and tends to be lively during the day and
                  sleep in the shadows of rocks and coral during the night."
    
                 "When they sleep, they use their mucous membrane to cover
                  themselves. This enables them to protect themselves against
                  predators as one function of the membrane is to block the fish's
                  smell."

    Description:  A roundish grey fish with a spiky dorsal fin
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, elongated, thread-like
                  dorsal fin and a length of 30cm. It is a silver colour with a
                  black spot with a white edge pattern on its sides."
    
    Location:    "It tends to lurk in underwater caves, where it can be seen all
                  year round."
          
    Length:       30 cm / 12 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Hovers quite high up in caves.
    
    Other info:  "Its scales are buried subcutaneously, making its body surface
                  slippery. Its mouth can open wide and extend forward too.
                  According to the situation, this fish can alter the brightness of
                  its colour."
    
                 "This species' black circular patterns are thought to be used to
                  intimidate its enemies. The function of this pattern in the
                  centre of its body is to divert attacks away from that area and
                  thus prevent them from sustaining a fatal injury to that region."

                  (in the Japanese release, this fish is Sardinops melanostictus)
    
    Description:  Small thin silvery fish
    
                 "A long, narrow fish with a length of 20cm. Its caudal fin is
                  split into two parts. Its back is blue and the underside is
                  silver-white."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen swimming in shoals in the Rock Land area mostly
                  during winter."
          
    Length:       20 cm / 8 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found in fast-swimming shoals. 
    
                  Impressive feeding behaviour. Sometimes chased by birds.
    
    Other info:  "They have up to 3 rows of black spots on the sides of their
                  bodies. There are cases where fish have hardly any of these spots
                  and also times when they have had many more."
    
                 "These fish lay their eggs from after sunset until late at night
                  in up to several metres of water. During the ovipositing period,
                  a single female can lay multiple batches of eggs, each containing
                  roughly 40,000 to 120,000 eggs. However, the rate of these that
                  go on to reach maturity in the harsh ocean climate is one in
                  100,000."

    Description:  Small silvery fish
    
                 "A narrow fish with a spindle-shaped body and a length of 40cm.
                  The back of its body is blue and the underside is pale silver."
    
    Location:    "Shoals can be seen during the spring and autumn in all areas of
                  Manaurai."
          
    Length:       40 cm / 16 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found in fast-swimming shoals. 
    
                  Impressive feeding behaviour. Sometimes chased by birds.
    
    Other info:  "There is a ripple pattern on its back. Feeds on small creatures
                  and plankton during infancy, but once fully grown, will eat small
                  fish."
     
                 "If this fish is consumed raw, there is the risk of stomach-ache.
                  The reason for this is that the fish is a known carrier of the
                  Anisakis parasite which makes holes in the walls of the stomach
                  or intestines causing severe discomfort. If the fish is
                  appropriately heated or frozen, the parasite will be eradicated."

    Description:  Medium-sized, chubby and pale red.
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, long pectoral fins and a
                  length of 60cm. The back of its body is light red and the
                  underside is white."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in relatively deep water all year round."
    
                  Also common everywhere in spring.
          
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually found in loose, fairly stationary groups. 
    
    Other info:  "During adulthood, this fish tends to dwell close to reefs and the
                  sea bed, but directly after hatching it swims freely, feeding on
                  plankton and other small creatures. When its size reaches
                  approximately 1 cm, it makes its home near the sea bed and begins
                  to feed on small fish, crustaceans and shellfish."
    
                 "This fish closely resembles the freshwater bream, a member of the
                  Cyprinidae family. It is thought that this is the reason it has
                  been given its name."

                 "A narrow fish with a spindle-shaped body and a length of 30cm.
                  The back of its body is gold and the underside is pale silver."
    
    Location:    "Shoals can be seen during the summer in all areas of Manaurai."
    
                  Also found in underground caves.
          
    Length:       30 cm / 12 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found in fast-swimming shoals. 
    
                  Impressive feeding behaviour. Sometimes chased by birds.
    
    Other info:  "The fins on the rear of its body have spiny scales starting from
                  the joints. Despite this being common among mackerel, the purpose
                  of these spines is unknown. Several dark stripes run along the
                  sides of its body."
    
                 "To protect itself, it can change the colour of its body. The
                  upper half mimics the colour of the water and the lower half will
                  reflect the surface of the water making it difficult to spot.
                  This makes it possible to evade sea birds and other predators
                  such as tuna."

    Description:  A pretty little silver fish.
    
                 "A narrow fish with a long, thin body, a length of 35cm and long
                  pectoral and ventral fins. It is dark blue with a silvery white
                  underside."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen during the spring and autumn in the Marige Atoll
                  area."
    
                  Found near the Mahi-mahi, which is its main predator.
          
    Length:       35 cm / 14 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Rather surprisingly, this one does not swim in shoals.
    
                  Usually solitary and slow-swimming.
    
    Other info:  "In order to avoid predators, this fish can extend its pectoral
                  fins and glide along the surface of the water. Also, the lower
                  section of its caudal fin allows it to keep up its momentum while
                  gliding by maintaining contact with the water."
    
                 "Their bodies are ideally suited to gliding as their bones are
                  full of holes. In order to prevent food making them heavier and
                  preventing them from gliding, they have no stomach and a very
                  short intestinal tract. Their gliding distance is between 100 and
                  200 m on average and they can be airborne for up to twenty
                  seconds, even longer if they're able to catch an air current."

                  this colour changes from gold to silver."
    
                 "These fish protect themselves from danger while young by swimming
                  with large fish such as sharks. the reason they are not eaten by
                  larger marine life is that infants are too small to be considered

                 "Able to live in areas where fresh and salt water mix, small fish
                  of this species have been known to swim up-river. For them to do
                  so, the difference in temperature between sea and river must be

                 "A very long and narrow fish with a length of 30cm. The male and
                  female differ in colour: males have a green body, females light
                  red."
    
                  This is the only fish that appears in distinct male and female
                  forms, which can be put into the Aquarium independently, and may
                  be asked for specifically on guided dives. 
    
    Location:    "Seen mainly in the spring in all areas of Manaurai."
    
                  Common everywhere in spring. Rare out of season, but sightings
                  have been reported between Knive's Reef and the Deep Valley.
          
    Length:       30 cm / 12 in 
    
    Forms:        adult female, adult male
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary. 
    
    Other info:  "A black line runs from the snout to the caudal fin joint. Males
                  have a black pattern above their pectoral fins. When a female
                  changes gender to become a male the body pattern also undergoes
                  change. During the winter, this fish will bury itself under the
                  sand on the sea bed and hibernate."
    
                 "In this species, males that have changed to have the same body as
                  females are referred to as 'primary males'. Females that have
                  become males are known as 'secondary males'. Shoals of secondary
                  males will have one large member that is bigger than a primary
                  male to spawn. Therefore, groups of primary males use one female
                  or a secondary male takes over the duty."

                  (ES) Arete
                  (IT) Gallinella
    
    Description:  Small and red, with distinctive leafy green fins, it looks like
                  it is impaled on a sprig of laurel. 
    
                 "It has a large head, but the overall size gets thinner towards
                  the tail section. It has three finger-like spines below each
                  pectoral fin and a length of 40cm. It is a dark red colour, and
                  its pectoral fins are a greenish-blue base with a blue speckled
                  pattern on them."
    
    Location:    "Can be easily seen during the Autumn in the Blue Hall area."
    
                  Hides away out of season - fond of enclosed spaces.          
          
    Length:       40 cm / 16 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary, and stays close to the sea bed.
    
    Other info:  "Because of the hard bone inside its head, it has an angular
                  appearance. It can also walk the seabed by sticking out its
                  spines left and right like legs, as its spines are evolved from
                  fins."
    
                 "Its spines contain sensory organs that allow the fish to taste
                  under the sand when searching for possible prey, such as
                  crustaceans or nereidae. The fish can also vibrate its air
                  bladder to create a sound not unlike that of a frog croaking."

                  (ES) Pez plano
                  (IT) Pesce coccodrillo
    
    Description:  Long brownish fish with a flat head. 
    
                 "It has a long body that is very flat to the ground, a large
                  mouth, protruding lower jaw and a length of 1m. It's brown with
                  a white underside. There are several belt-like black lines on its
                  back."
    
    Location:    "Can easily be seen during the winter in the Blue Hall area."
    
                  Hides away in enclosed places out of season.          
          
    Length:       1 m / 3 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary, and hugs the sea bed.
    
    Other info:  "The English name 'flathead' was derived from the squashed
                  appearance it has. Its body colour mimics that of the ocean floor
                  and so is difficult for predators and prospective prey to spot.
                  During the day it spends most of its time buried under the sand
                  not moving."
    
                 "As they grow bigger and bigger, males undergo a gender change and
                  become females. Because of this, most of the larger specimens
                  tend to be female."

    Description:  Slender grey fish, never seen alone. 
    
                 "Its body is long, thin and narrow, with sharp pectoral fins and
                  a length of 80cm. Its body is grey with a thick, dark stripe
                  running from head to tail."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen around the Marige Atoll area all year round."
    
                  A pair of these swim directly beneath the Whale Shark when it is
                  outside the Atoll near Knives Reef/Comb Reef.
          
    Length:       80 cm / 3 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Likes Whale sharks.
    
    Other info:  "On the back of its head, the dorsal fin region has been replaced
                  by a large sucker. It has such powerful suction as to leave a
                  mark on the area it has attached itself to. There is a rich
                  variation of colours for this fish, ranging from grey to blue.
                  They live their lives attaching themselves to larger fish."
    
                 "They enjoy a symbiotic relationship with much larger marine
                  creatures, and consume parasitic worms from their hosts. Whether
                  by mistake or not, they are sometimes eaten by their hosts, and
                  their remains can be found in the hosts' stomachs."

                  (IT) Morostomo
    
    Description:  A hard, round head with a thin tail
    
                 "Its body is brown with a length of 80cm and covered with a hard
                  shell. The top section is in the shape of a crescent moon, and
                  the lower section has six spines along each side. At the rear is
                  a thin and pointed sword-like tail."
    
    Location:    "Prefers enclosed, special environments in which it can be seen
                  all year round."
          
    Length:       80 cm / 3 ft (looks smaller than this in the game) 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Sedentary. Appears to like other round, hard things.
    
    Other info:  "At the front of their bodies, they have one pair of eyes known
                  as 'stemma', that are used to perceive light and another pair
                  that are used to distinguish between multiple objects.
                  Additionally, larvae lack the long, thin tail and have a shape
                  closely resembling that of prehistoric trilobites. Usually
                  inhabiting areas on the ocean floor, they occasionally turn their
                  backs downwards and swim close to the surface."  
    
                 "Horseshoe crab blood has been used in medicinal and
                  pharmaceutical research where various uses have become apparent,
                  such as quickly testing for endotoxins such as E. coli."

                  (IT) Calamaro di reef
    
    Description:  A greyish squid, more noticeable for its fins than its tentacles.
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped abdominal region that has a fin running
                  all around it and a length of 45cm. There are ten tentacles
                  extending out of the front. Its body is a transparent whitish
                  colour."
    
    Location:    "Adult specimens can be seen during the summer around the Green
                  Garden area."
    
                  Breeds in July, eggs hatch in October. You will get an email to
                  remind you.
    
                  Eggs and young can be found at the base of kelp plants. 
          
    Length:       45 cm / 18 in 
    
    Forms:        eggs, young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Swims around in large groups. 
    
                  Squirts ink when prodded. Responds well to petting. Feeds rather
                  spectacularly as a group - they all join in.
    
    Other info:  "Males have lines stretching sideways from their backs, but
                  females have spots. They lay their eggs in areas of seaweed or
                  coral from the spring to the summer. During this time, males
                  never leave their partners' sides and are always on hand to
                  protect them while they lay their eggs."
    
                 "The ink that squids shoot out is a liquid crystal substance.
                  There are many types of liquid crystal, and the one these
                  creatures use differs from that found in LCD displays. Ink like
                  that of squids is used in thermometers and glossy accessories."

    Description:  A brownish cuttlefish.
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped torso 60cm long with 10 tentacles
                  sprouting from it and fins running the entire length. It has the
                  ability to change its body colour to suit the surrounding
                  environment."
    
    Location:    "Specimens can be seen around the Sunshine Beach area during the
                  autumn and winter."
    
                  Breeds in December, eggs hatch in February. You will get an email
                  to remind you.
    
                  Eggs and young can be found in the corals. 
          
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        eggs, young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Swims around in groups. Squirts ink when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "It has two elongated tentacles and each has around eighty suckers
                  arranged in five rows. The central suckers are different from the
                  others in that they are larger in size."  
    
                 "Every year, when they come to lay eggs among the coral, the male
                  swims around the female to offer protection during the egg-laying
                  process. Also, it can change he colour on each side of its body
                  independently meaning that only the predator sees the menacing,
                  defensive colour."

    Description:  Small and reddish.
    
                 "Its body is round with a length of 60cm and has 8 tentacles
                  descending from it. The tentacles are covered in suckers, and
                  there is a membrane between each tentacle. It has the ability to
                  change its body colour to suit the surrounding environment."
    
    Location:    "Can be found in areas scattered with man-made debris all the year
                  round."
    
                  Also found south of Deep Valley.
          
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    In small stationary groups. Squirts ink when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "There are numerous protuberances over its body which form a fine
                  mesh-like pattern. Also, males have enlarged suckers on two of
                  their eight tentacles. The suckers have lines running from the
                  centre outwards, and it only sheds skin from the front of the
                  suckers to prevent loss of suction strength."
    
                 "Octopus ink spreads easily and is used to create a smoke-screen
                  effect, while squid ink is more solid and is used as a decoy.
                  Incidentally, as this species' tentacles can split, specimens
                  with as many as 96 legs have been found."

    Description:  Greenish-blue and very noticeable.
    
                 "It has a cylindrical greenish-blue body 60cm long with a hard
                  shell, two sets of antennae and ten legs. Its back has a light
                  yellow pattern on it."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mostly in the Rock Land area all year round."
          
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    In groups clinging to rocks or other structures.
    
    Other info:  "This is the largest member of the Palinuridae family. It has thin
                  antennae that stretch out in front and larger, shell-covered ones
                  as well. The thinner pair are used to taste and smell while the
                  larger ones are used primarily for searching."
    
                 "After hatching, they take on a light, transparent form and have
                  an extended period of drifting called the 'philozoma stage'. It
                  then sheds its skin repeatedly to enter the puerulus stage, where
                  it has the same attributes as an adult while keeping a
                  transparent body. On reaching this stage, it begins to live on
                  the seabed. Then, it sheds its skin once more and takes on the
                  colouring of a lobster."

    Description:  Red and green and very spiny indeed.
    
                 "It has a length of 60 cm and numerous arms protruding out from
                  the centre with its entire body covered in spines. The spines
                  contain a poison that can lead to death if touched. It is red
                  tinged with brown and the spines are green."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the Knives Reef area all year round."
          
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Sits on, and presumably eats, table coral.
    
    Other info:  "They live in coral reefs and feed off the coral which turns white
                  afterwards. They particularly like Acropora virgata which grows
                  quickly. They are vulnerable to being eaten by triton molluscs as
                  their poison has no effect on them."
    
                 "Outbreaks can devour entire areas of coral, turning it white. To
                  prevent this, their population must be controlled. If a moderate
                  number are allowed to inhabit an area, they can feed on old
                  coral. This is effective in helping reefs to develop. Humans are
                  largely to blame for their outbreaks due to pollution, but it 
                  isn't enough to merely cull their number, we must focus on the
                  root of the problem."

    Other info:  "They have a black line that stretches from the centre of their
                  bodies and around the edge of each of their fins. They have a
                  special body surface that protects them from sea anemones, and
                  live in close proximity to them to prevent attacks from
                  predators."
    
                 "All clownfish can change gender, and the largest males in the sea
                  anemones they co-exist with will become females. These fish are
                  also prized for their attractive appearance. However, the
                  over-fishing of these fish as a result of this has become a

    Behaviour:    Usually hidden under glows in coral or on coral rocks.
    
    Other info:  "Males' caudal fins are orange and females' white. Clownfish live
                  with different sea anemones according to their type. In the case

                 "Adults and large numbers of infants can live in harmony with a
                  single sea anemone, yet there are many cases where these fish are
                  not parents and children. The reason for this is that, after
                  hatching and spending time near the surface, they become
                  distanced from the anemone where the parent fish are."

                  stand to distance themselves from the anemones they co-habit." 
    
                 "From the clownfish perspective, the advantage of living together
                  with sea anemones is that they are protected from predators. The
                  advantage for the sea anemone remains unclear. Whether there are
                  mutual advantages, or is the relationship only beneficial to the

                 "These fish don't actually have blue pigment, but instead have
                  cells known as rainbow chromatophores that reflect blue light
                  giving them their colour. They can also change the tone of this
                  colour from dark to light, which enables them to convey their 
                  intentions to other members of their species. When they die,

    Other info:  "These fish are small, even by Pomacentridae standards. The
                  English name, 'goldtail demoiselle' is thought to have been

                 "Their eggs are adhesive and are attached to rocks or coral when

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Sometimes in the open, or hidden in coral under glows.
    
    Other info:  "One of its characteristic points is the way the canine teeth
                  protrude from its lower jaw. Also, depending on how it catches

    Behaviour:    Hidden in coral under glows, usually in enclosed spaces.
    
                  Likes being patted, but tends to swim away if poked. Young fish
                  will take food readily, not so the adults. 
    
    Other info:  "Infants have three very distinctive white markings on them, which 
                  accounts for their name in English being 'three-spot'. As they
                  grow older however, these marks become less distinct as they fade

                  with large sea anemones. 
    
                 "If infants can, they will live in soft coral; they have less of a
                  dependency on sea anemones than yellowtail clownfish do. Once
                  they reach maturity, they break away from the anemones and form

                  on the sides of their bodies known as 'lateral lines'.
                  Additionally, these organs allow the fish to recognise changes

                  body is yellow with numerous whitish-blue, black-edged lines
                  running down the sides of its body."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the coral in all areas of Manaurai all year
                  round."
          
    Length:       25 cm / 10 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually hidden under glows. (?)
    
    Other info:  "Their anal fins are patterned with blue wavy lines. Infants have 
                  round patterns on their caudal fins that closely resemble blue
                  eyes. Males live in rocky or coral reefs together with multiple
                  females."
    
                 "The circular pattern that adorns infants serves to protect them
                  against predators. Since predators instinctively attack the spot
                  where the eyes are, these markings divert their focus to other
                  areas away from the actual eyes. If the fish sustains injuries
                  to the fins containing the markings, they are unlikely to be
                  fatal."

                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, extremely long protruding
                  snout and a length of 16cm. A yellow body with a black pattern
                  covering its upper head and top part of the snout."
    
    Location:    "A common fish that can be seen all year round in Manaurai."
          
    Length:       16 cm / 6 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually found around coral in the open. Can also be found under
                  glows. 
    
                  Likes being patted but not fond of poking. Has a fantastic sense
                  of smell and zooms in quickly when you place food anywhere close.
    
    Other info:  "The edges of both the pectoral and anal fins are blue, but the 
                  anal fin also has a black pattern. Lives in proximity to reefs
                  and coral and uses its elongated snout to extract food from gaps
                  in the coral."
    
                 "Usually found swimming in small groups near the seabed and
                  dwelling between rocks or in caves, they sleep with their
                  undersides facing upwards."

    Description:  Small, triangular, with black and white stripes.
    
                 "A narrow fish with a length of 25cm, shaped like a standing oval
                  and with an elongated thread-like dorsal fin. The front half of
                  its body is white, while the rear is yellow and it has two thick
                  black stripes running down its sides."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all year round."
    
                  Fairly common around corals and can also be found under glows.
          
    Length:       25 cm / 10 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in groups of two or three.
    
    Other info:  "It has a protruding snout and thin bristly teeth. As it matures,
                  its eyes become more prominent. Usually found in shallow, rocky
                  areas or around coral, but has also been seen in areas with
                  depths up to 180 m." 
    
                 "Resting at night nestled among rocks and other objects, this
                  fish's body colour changes from its usual colour to grey. This 
                  species can be found in many different areas. One reason for this
                  is that during infancy, the fish tend to swim far afield and
                  often get carried off by currents to different regions."

    Description:  A sort of rounded-off angelfish with brownish stripes.
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, an elongated front
                  section on its dorsal fin and a length of 24cm. Its body has
                  alternating black and white lines across it. Its pectoral fins,
                  caudal fin and front section of the dorsal fin are yellow."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the coral in all areas of Manaurai all year
                  round."
    
                  More usually found under glows in enclosed spaces. Difficult to
                  find in open water, but has been seen around Knive's Reef. 
          
    Length:       24 cm / 9 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary.
    
    Other info:  "They have small protrusions above their eyes. Also, the length of
                  the front section of infants' dorsal fins is large in relation to
                  their bodies, and measures almost the same height. They tend to
                  dwell around areas of coral and are often seen in pairs."
    
                 "The clear blue tropical waters that are normally home to this
                  species of tropical fish offer little nourishment in the form of
                  plankton, making the living conditions harsh. However, areas
                  which contain coral are an exception as the nutrition they
                  release is eaten by plankton, which then multiplies, and is in
                  turn consumed by other animals. This process enables all kinds of
                  life to exist in these areas."

    Length:       20 cm / 8 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary or in pairs.
    
    Other info:  "There are numerous black lines running in different directions on
                  the sides of their bodies. Those that hatched in the Red Sea
                  often don't have the circular black pattern on them. They live
                  around coral reefs and use their thread-like teeth to feed on sea
                  anemones and coral polyps."
    
                 "These fish differ in shape from infant to adult. When they are
                  young they have board-shaped bone around their heads. Though we
                  don't know exactly why, it seems that this shape might make them
                  less susceptible to attack from predators."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Nothing spectacular.
    
    Other info:  "They have small heads, and their mouths are at the end of their
                  protruding snouts. A black belt-like line runs over their eyes
                  with white lines on wither side of it. Also, just above the
                  pectoral fins there are two white lines facing towards the anal
                  fin."
    
                 "As with this species, young fish that usually inhabit warm areas
                  can get carried to colder regions by ocean currents. When the
                  water temperature drops in the winter, the fish usually perish.
                  On rare occasions when some survive, they are of great importance
                  to the species because, if they successfully mate and populate
                  the new region, it will widen the distribution of the species."

    Length:       7 cm / 3 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary. Hard to photograph unless you can coax it out.
    
    Other info:  "It has a yellow pattern on the side of its head, which gives it a
                  very colourful complexion when mixed with the colours on its
                  body. It lives amongst the coral branches. Males often bite each

                  many new species are found every year, the discovery of a new

                  fin that stretches from the back of its head to its caudal fin
                  joint. It lives in between the rocks in reefs and can lay tens

    Description:  A stone-coloured fish shaped like a long pebble.
    
                 "A slightly narrow fish with a long, thin body and a length of
                  8cm. Its snout is short and its eyes protrude a little. There is
                  a large colour variation among this species and ..."
    
    Location:    "...they can be found lurking in the walls of sunken structures
                  all year round."
    
                  Hides in the cracks between hewn stones.
    
    Length:       8 cm / 2 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    A well-camouflaged and shy fish. Retreats when poked.
    
    Other info:  "There are small protrusions just above its eyes. They have one
                  set of sharp teeth at the back of each section of their jaws.
                  Their bodies are small, yet their bite can be painful. After
                  hatching, most of their body area is transparent. They live in
                  the gaps between rocks."
    
                 "There are members of the Parablennius yatabei family that
                  resemble the appearance and movement of species that clean other
                  fish. They use this resemblance to their advantage and are able
                  to approach other fish, take bites out of them and then escape
                  effectively."

    Description:  Tiny pale fish with orange tail.
    
                 "Its body is long and thin, with a length of 7cm. The front part
                  of its dorsal fin is elongated and its caudal fin is rounded. Its
                  colour scheme is a graduation from light yellow to milky-white to
                  brown from its head to its tail."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in every area of Manaurai with coral reefs all year
                  round."
    
                  Usually under glows on the reef close to coral.
    
    Length:       7 cm / 3 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Keeps close to its hole and retreats sharply when tapped.
    
                  To take a good photograph, tap it and wait for it to re-emerge. 
    
    Other info:  "They tend to live near coral-covered areas or the seabed, and
                  are often seen in pairs. When they sense danger, the female is
                  quick to return to the dwelling, followed later by the male. 
    
                 "The goby species have adapted through a number of processes to
                  suit their surroundings. Other than the usual warm places this
                  species inhabit, they can also be found in water with
                  temperatures as low as 3 [degrees] C and depths up to 270 m."

    Description:  Tiny pale fish with purple tail.
    
                 "A fairly narrow fish with a long, thin body and a length of 7cm.
                  The front section of its dorsal fin is elongated. The front
                  section to the caudal fin is a gradation of purple, milk-white
                  and dark purple in that order.

    Length:       7 cm / 3 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    If you poke it, it will dive down its hole. 
    
                  Hard to get a good photograph. Try poking it and waiting for it
                  to re-emerge. 
    
    Other info:  "They live near the sandy ocean floor near coral reefs and are
                  often seen swimming in the same direction as the tides. The
                  reason for this is to eat the plankton that is also riding the
                  ocean currents."
    
                 "Like this species, most gobies are without poison, but there
                  are some which have the pufferfish poison tetrodoxin in their
                  skin and muscle tissue. However, though coral goby do possess
                  poison, theirs differs from pufferfish poison."

    Length:       6.5 cm / 3 in 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Lives in holes in the sand and is always accompanied by a
                  Randall's Pistol Shrimp. Responds well to feeding. Vanishes if
                  poked.

                  also exist, both with small cobalt blue spots scattered on
                  their heads and dorsal fins. They live on the sandy ocean floor
                  around rocky or coral reefs together with pistol shrimp."
    
                 "At one time the yellow shrimp goby was called the Cryptocentrus
                  flavus, it was thought to have been a different species, but was
                  later correctly identified as this one as they live in the same
                  kinds of nests and have the same characteristics."

                 "During the mating season, the rear sections of males' bodies
                  turn a dark colour. Their courtship involves swimming in a
                  stationary position above their nests and spreading their fins."

                  Responds well to patting and is a greedy feeder.
    
    Other info:  "At the end of their protrusions, they have a fishing lure-like
                  object and an area of their dorsal fin is covered with a
                  membrane. There is a brown pattern stretching from their backs to
                  the upper part of their pectoral fins."  
    
                 "They use their leg-like pectoral and ventral fins to crawl along
                  the ocean floor. They can also move by forcing water out of the
                  small holes at the base of their pectoral fins."

    Description:  Squat white fish with 'legs' and brownish patches.
    
                 "It has an oval-shaped body with pectoral fins that have taken
                  on the shape of legs and a length of 8.5cm. Above its snout is a
                  fishing rod-like protrusion. It has a white body and a large
                  brown pattern stretching from behind its eyes."
    
    Location:    "It tends to lurk in underwater caves, where it can be seen all
                  year round."
    
                  And also inside the Atoll.
    
    Length:       8.5 cm / 3 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Walks around when tapped. Can be persuaded to climb vertical
                  structures and fall off.
    
                  Responds well to patting and is a greedy feeder.
    
    Other info:  "The tip of its protrusion is lure-like and known as an 'esker'
                  and it has a filmy area on its dorsal fin. On rare occasions
                  there have been specimens that are black with a yellow spotted
                  pattern on them."
    
                 "The shape of the lure-like 'esker' changes as the fish matures.
                  During infancy, it resembles a small crustacean, and later on it
                  takes on a shape similar to that of a tiny fish. The esker is
                  used to draw in prospective prey which will then be swallowed
                  whole."

                 "It has an oval-shaped body with a length of 16cm and pectoral
                  fins that have evolved to become similar to legs. It has a
                  protrusion on the top of its snout that resembles a fishing lure.
                  There are a great many colour variations." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in all regions of Manaurai on the ocean floor."
    
    Length:       16 cm / 6 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Walks around when tapped. Can be persuaded to climb vertical
                  structures and fall off.
    
                  Responds well to patting and is a greedy feeder. Has been seen to
                  hiccup when eating too fast.
    
    Other info:  "At the end of their protrusions, they have a fishing lure-like
                  object that has the same shape as a tiny creature that fish eat.
                  Their bodies are covered in small protrusions."
    
                 "Frogfish eggs are known as 'agglutinated pelagic eggs' and large
                  numbers of them are contained in a long belt-like gelatinous
                  sack that is bigger than the body size of the parent fish. The
                  advantages of agglutinated pelagic eggs are as yet unknown."

    Length:       12 cm / 5 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Found in static shoals above coral and very occasionally as
                  solitary fish under glows inside Giant clams.
    
                  Responds well to petting and feeding.
    
    Other info:  "They live close to rocky reefs or coral-covered areas. Males have
                  a reddish-purple pattern on their pectoral fins and tend to live
                  in closed groups together with multiple females."
    
                 "They are all born as females, but after forming a large group,
                  they change gender to become male as required. For large shoals,
                  the percentage of males can be between 10% and 30%, and sometimes
                  only a single male in smaller ones."

                 "Only males in the Pseudanthias family gather and swim together
                  in shoals. The purpose of this formation, known as 'clustering',
                  is said to be so the males can decide their order and assess the

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Nothing noteworthy
    
    Other info:  "Each of their fins has a blue edge and females' bodies are
                  yellow. Since this species lives in fairly deep areas among the
                  coral, there aren't many opportunities to see them."              
    
                 "Like the Pseudanthias family, there are many fish that change
                  their gender from female to male. Basically, the reason for this
                  is that the genital glands are developed in this order; first
                  the ovary and then the testes, which are delayed."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Likes to hide in glows in fan corals.
    
    Other info:  "When females undergo gender changes to become males, part of
                  their dorsal fin becomes elongated, their body colour changes

    Other info:  "Each side of its body has a total of six lines, one of which
                  covers up its eyes, possibly to hide them from attackers."
    
                 "During the spawning period, the fish pair up and the eggs are
                  protected inside the males' mouths until they hatch. The
                  incubation time is usually around eight days, and during this

    Behaviour:    Only under glows. Inflates itself when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "Through the process of evolution, this species' scales have
                  become long spines. Their teeth are close together and both the
                  upper and lower rows are plate-like. With the exception of their
                  fins, there are black spots all over their bodies."
    
                 "When in danger, they suck large quantities of water into their
                  stomachs and inflate their bodies. When they do this, their
                  spines stand on end in a distinctive defence formation. Despite
                  being related to the pufferfish, they are not poisonous which is
                  likely the reason for their defensive technique. They have

                  (IT) Gaterino arlecchino
    
    Description:  Tiny and spotty and wriggly. 
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body and a length of 5cm. Its
                  caudal fin is split into two parts. Infants are orange with seven
                  large black-edged white spots on them." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in coral-covered areas of Manaurai all year round."
    
                  Also on the floor of the Caves. 
    
    Length:       5 cm / 2 in    
    
    Forms:        young only
    
    Behaviour:    Mostly on the ground and under glows.
    
    Other info:  "The white area of the caudal fin is so large that it looks like
                  it has two orange spots. As the fish gets older, the white area
                  develops dark spots. After that, its body colour changes again to
                  become light yellow with numerous black speckled areas."
    
                 "The infants swim in an undulating manner and are said to mimic a
                  primitive characteristic found in red planarian. The red
                  planarian in turn is said to mimic the Thecacera pacifica, but
                  the truth about both of these remains unknown."

                  (IT) Nudibranco thecacera
    
    Description:  A knobbly orange slug. 
    
                 "It has a near cylindrical orange body, two antennae, tuft-shaped
                  gills and a length of 5cm. Near its gills are two distinctive
                  protrusions." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the coral-covered areas all over Manaurai all year
                  round."
    
    Length:       5 cm / 2 in    
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Squirms when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "The base of the antennae, the tip of the protrusions and the tail
                  section all shine from black to pale blue. They inhabit reefs and
                  swing their protrusions to move."
    
                 "Sea slugs leave a smell imprint on the paths they travel which
                  enables others to follow this smell and encounter those of their
                  own species for mating purposes. It seems that this evolutionary
                  step has enabled small sea slugs to meet others of their species
                  across the vastness of the ocean."

    Description:  A knobbly orange and black slug. 
    
                 "It has a near cylindrical orange body, two antennae, tuft-shaped
                  gills and a length of 5cm. It has black spots scattered over its
                  body."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Squirms when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "They have finger-like protrusions stemming from their backs that
                  are black at the tip. They resemble Thacacera pacifica as both
                  species have colourful bodies and are popular among divers."
    
                 "Since most sea slugs have rather colourful bodies, they are often
                  easy targets for predators. However, even if the sea slugs are
                  eaten, they taste foul and it is thought that their colourful
                  appearance serves to highlight this fact."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Squirms when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "It has a yellow line running between its feelers and the front
                  of its gills and also a similar separate line along the sides of
                  its body. It lives in rocky or coral-covered areas and feeds on
                  sea sponges."
    
                 "Sea slugs keep close company with conches and use special organs
                  known as cilia to move and find food under the cover of borrowed
                  shells just after they have been born. However, they discard the
                  shell as they grow."

    Behaviour:    Squirms when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "Their gills, tips of their antennae and edges of their bodies are
                  orange. After their eggs have hatched, they are carried away by
                  the tide and begin drifting. While they are young, they are 
                  covered in a shell which they shed as they grow."
    
                 "This special sea slug is hermaphroditic and has both male and
                  female genital organs. Because of this, any two can mate and
                  produce eggs. This species' eggs are ribbon-like and laid in a
                  wound up, coiled fashion."

    Other info:  "Their antennae and gills are a light colour with numerous white
                  spots on them. they have broken black lines on their backs, and
                  on many specimens the only places the lines remain are between
                  their antennae and just in front of their gills."  
    
                 "Although this species is classified alongside conches, there are
                  a few that carry shells on their backs. Just after they hatch,
                  they possess shells, but adult specimens lack these because they
                  shed them as they grow up."

    Other info:  "If they are startled, they emit a pale-blue light. the reason for
                  this is still unknown. They tend to live around rocky reefs, but
                  another of their habitual actions is to bury themselves in the

                 "Sea slugs' gills are located behind their hearts, classifying
                  them under the order Opisthobranchia, which is named for this
                  trait. Though sea slugs are related to conches, they have evolved
                  to no longer use a shell and their gills have moved to the rear

                  (ES) Dragón de mar foliado
                  (IT) Dragone foglia
    
    Description:  Green, very frilly, seahorse disguised as seaweed.
    
                 "It has a long, curved body with branching protrusions all over it
                  and a length of 40cm. Its snout is long and tube-like with a tiny
                  mouth at the end. Its colour scheme resembles that of seaweed."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen among the plants in the Green Garden all year round."
    
                  Under glows in kelp plants.
    
    Length:       40cm / 16 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Drifts around on its own. Only slightly livelier when poked, but
                  it is still a beautiful creature.
    
    Other info:  "The branching protrusions all over its body bear a remarkable
                  resemblance to seaweed, giving them the ability to hide from
                  predators with ease. Males have a recessed section in their
                  ventral region known as a 'marsupium'. They tend to dwell in
                  areas where sea is plentiful, such as rocky reefs."
    
                 "Females deposit between 150 and 300 eggs into the males'
                  stomachs and from then on it is the males' duty to protect
                  them from harm until they hatch. Because it is difficult to
                  determine the gender from their external appearance, it is
                  determined by identifying the one with the eggs."

    Description:  Orange frilly seahorse disguised as seaweed.
    
                 "With a length of 45cm, the centre of its body bulges and it has
                  several protrusions stemming from its back and ventral region.
                  Its snout is long and tube-like with a tiny mouth at the end. Its
                  colour scheme resembles that of seaweed."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen among the plants in the Green Garden all year round."

    Length:       45 cm / 18 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Drifts around on its own.
    
    Other info:  "The protrusions stemming from their bodies serve to conceal them
                  from predators. Unlike other sea horses, they do not possess a
                  marsupium."
    
                 "This species is categorised by the International Union for
                  Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources' red list as 'Lower
                  Risk - Near Threatened'. This means that their population is
                  continuing to fall and their living conditions are getting
                  worse, and that it is likely that things will continue to
                  worsen."

    Description:  Very small pink seahorse. Hard to see.
    
                 "It has a long, thin and extremely small body with a length of 2cm.
                  There are nodule-like protrusions over its entire body and its
                  snout is long and thin with a tiny mouth at the end. It is pink 
                  and the protrusions are dark pink."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the soft coral in the Deep Valley area all year
                  round."
    
    Length:       2 cm / 1 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Drifts around in small groups.
    
    Other info:  "Their tails are coiled which allows them to be wrapped around
                  seaweed or coral. They can change their body colour according to 
                  the environment in which they live. Specimens with various
                  different patterns and colours such as orange, red and yellow
                  have been discovered."
    
                 "Despite this species' popularity among divers, it remains an
                  elusive creature and is not easy to find. The reason is not
                  merely their minute size, but also that their bodies' uncanny
                  resemblance to the coral shafts and their nodule-like protrusions
                  being similar to polyps."

                  (ES) Caballo de mar
                  (IT) Ippocampo coronato
    
    Description:  A seahorse-shaped seahorse of the ordinary size.
    
                 "It has a tall, thin body with a long tail and a height of 10cm.
                  Its snout is long and it has a crown-like protrusion on its head.
                  This creature comes in a variety of colours."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all year round in all areas of Manaurai that
                  have coral."
    
    Length:       10 cm / 4 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Drifts around, usually on its own.
    
    Other info:  "This creature's body is covered with hard, bumpy bones known as
                  'body rings'. It has short pectoral and dorsal fins, but lacks
                  ventral or caudal ones. It doesn't have a very powerful swimming
                  action and therefore tends to live in areas with gentle
                  currents."
    
                 "Males have an area, known as a 'marsupium' which females lay
                  their eggs into. This area allows males to keep the eggs safe
                  until they hatch. When the eggs hatch, the male attaches its tail
                  on to seaweed and while shaking vigorously, releases the young,
                  of which there can be around seventy, one by one."

                  (ES) Lenguado japonés
                  (IT) Sogliola limanda
    
    Description:  One of two almost identical small flatfishes.
    
                 "A flat fish with an oval-shaped body and a length of 15cm. It is
                  brown on the side with its eyes, and white on the other." 
    
                  Under glows on the ground.
    
    Location:    "Can be found in underwater caves and on the sandy ocean floor all
                  year round."
    
    Length:       15 cm / 6 in
    
    Forms:        young only
    
    Behaviour:    Tap it to make it move, sometimes it is lying on top of a sea
                  slug.
    
                  Likes food, but not when placed directly in front of it. Drop
                  some food somewhere else and it will respond enthusiastically.
    
    Other info:  "Both eyes are located on the right side of their bodies, and
                  compared to the size of its body, the mouth is fairly small.
                  Unusually for the Pleuronectidae family, this fish lays adhesive
                  eggs that form a single large mass. It mimics the ocean floor
                  where it lives."
    
                 "In very rare cases there have been variations in body colours,
                  resulting in fish with white bodies. But since these fish do not
                  possess the ability to change their colour to blend in with the
                  surrounding environment, it is difficult for them to survive for
                  long periods of time."

                  (IT) Calamaro-lucciola
    
    Description:  A small semitransparent shining squid 
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped abdomen with ten tentacles extending from
                  it and a length of 7cm. It has hundreds of photogenic organs on
                  its white body that glow a pale blue."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in deep, dark areas all year round."
    
                  Only under glows
    
    Length:       7 cm / 3 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in groups of two or three.
    
                  Excitement helps it to glow.
    
                  For some reason when you give it food the food is delivered at
                  the wrong end. The squid takes an age to turn round and rarely
                  makes it to the food on time.
    
    Other info:  "At the tip of the fourth set of tentacles are light-emitting
                  photogenic organs which are used for intimidation. the only
                  tentacles to have this ability are the fourth pair. During the
                  day, they dwell at depths of hundreds of metres, but come to the
                  surface at night." 
    
                 "This species can adjust the brightness of the light it emits from
                  its photogenic organs by comparing it with the light coming from
                  above. By doing so, it can hide its shadow and blend into the
                  background, avoiding the eyes of predators and escaping danger."

    Description:  Looks like a peeled grape with feelers
    
                 "Its body is barrel-shaped, has a rounded fin at the end and a
                  length of 12cm. It is a semi-transparent colour and has ten short
                  feelers with suckers arranged on them stretching from its
                  abdominal region." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in deep, dark areas all year round."
    
                  Only under glows
    
    Length:       12 cm / 5 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in groups of two or three.
    
    Other info:  "The entire surface of their abdominal regions and their fin
                  joints are covered in innumerable star-shaped protrusions. Also,
                  there are fourteen photogenic organs around their large eyes."
    
                 "To gain buoyancy, this species uses a reserve of body fluids in
                  its abdomen that are lighter than salt water. As a result, their
                  bodies are inflated, and over 60% of their weight can be
                  attributed to their bodily fluids."

                  (IT) Grongo maculato
    
    Description:  A spotty worm sticking out of the sand.
    
                 "It has a long, thin, cylindrical body with small, short pectoral
                  fins and a length of 40cm. It is white with dark speckles on its
                  body. It also has large dark markings near its gills."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen on the sandy ocean floor of all areas of Manaurai all
                  year round."
    
                  Only under glows
    
    Length:       40 cm / 16 in (but much of this stays under the ground)
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually found in pairs and sometimes accompanied by the Black
                  garden eel.   
    
                  Does not like being petted or poked, it will retreat into its
                  hole. Usually responds well to feeding, but the taller eel is a
                  bit of a bully and prefers to steal food from those smaller than
                  itself. 
    
    Other info:  "It lives in groups on the sandy ocean floor of coral reefs, with
                  only half of its body visible from under the sand. It faces the
                  oncoming tide and feeds on the plankton that is swept in its
                  direction."
    
                 "Eel species members go through a stage called 'leptophalus' in
                  which they are thin and ribbon-like. During this stage, they do
                  not resemble the adults, but as they grow older, they become 20%
                  to 50% shorter and more cylindrical, gradually assuming the same
                  form as their parents."

    Description:  A black worm sticking out of the sand.
    
                 "It has a long, thin, cylindrical body with no scales and a length
                  of 50cm. Its body is grey or brown."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen on the sandy ocean floor of all areas of Manaurai all
                  year round."
    
                  Only under glows, and almost always accompanied by a pair of 
                  Spotted Garden Eels.
    
    Length:       50 cm / 20 in (but much of this stays under the ground, and in
                  practice it looks smaller and thinner than its spotted cousins)
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Does not like being poked or petted, it will retreat into its
                  hole. Responds well to feeding but often has to share its food
                  with its bigger cousins.
    
    Other info:  "They have distinctive pale patterns just above their gills. They
                  live in groups and make their nests in the sand on the ocean
                  floor. They emerge from their burrows and sway in the ocean
                  currents. Sometimes referred to as the 'garden eel' due to their
                  resemblance to grass waving in the wind." 
    
                 "While drifting, the infants grow and take on the same body shape
                  as adults. Once the change has taken place and they have adapted
                  to life on the ocean floor, they proceed to use their caudal fins
                  to burrow a hole in the sand which they will inhabit. The
                  majority of their lives are spent inside this hole into which
                  they can quickly disappear when danger presents itself."

                 "It has a fairly thick body from the head to the abdomen that
                  becomes thinner towards the tail. It has a length of 10cm. It is
                  brown with long, thin eyes and a rounded snout."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly during the spring in areas with scattered

    Other info:  "There are several dark brown bands and numerous patterns on their
                  bodies. They live around rocky or coral reefs on the ocean floor
                  and when they sense danger, they suck in water or air and inflate
                  the ventral section of their bodies."
    
                 "Females can store sperm for long periods of time. It has been
                  known for them to lay fertilised eggs from sperm transmitted two
                  years earlier. The eggs are 10cm in diameter around the middle
                  and each of the corners has a vine-like extension that can coil
                  around rocks or seaweed on the ocean floor to prevent them being
                  carried away by ocean currents."

    Behaviour:    (?)
    
    Other info:  "As they get older, an irregular black pattern begins to appear on
                  their backs and the former white pattern disappears. They are
                  born without venom, but accumulate it through eating poisonous
                  food to become venomous. Infants spend most of their time around
                  the sandy seabed, but later in life they swim across large areas.
                  It is said that they return to their birth place to spawn."
    
                 "Puffer fish toxin is measured in mouse units (MU). 1 MU is enough
                  to kill a 20g mouse in thirty minutes. Ten thousand MU is
                  required to kill a human being and it is said that one fish
                  contains around ten times that amount in its internal organs."

                 "It has a long, thin cylindrical body with a shell and a length of
                  6cm. It has two sets of feelers and ten legs, the two foremost of
                  which have pincers on them. It has a red and white patterned
                  body."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai on the sandy ocean floor all
                  year round."
    
    Length:      6 cm / 2 in
    
    Forms:       adult only
    
    Behaviour:   Always accompanied by a shrimp goby. Escapes if prodded, responds
                 to feeding.
                 
                 Even responds happily if you make the goby happy. 
    
    Other info:  "The size of its pincers are different on each side with the
                  larger of the two able to emit sound used to ward off enemies.
                  It builds its nest in the sand on the ocean floor and lives
                  together with goby fish. Its nests can be large and consist of a
                  complex series of branches."  
    
                 "Pistol shrimps' vision is exceedingly bad, meaning their ability
                  to detect danger is low. However, as these creatures co-exist
                  with goby fish, they are forewarned of predators and can escape
                  accordingly. This is done by the shrimp bringing its feelers into
                  contact with the goby and, should the goby move its fin, the
                  shrimp knows danger is near."

                  mouths to be swallowed whole." 
    
                 "As they can inflate their stomachs and abdominal region to much

    Length:       8 cm / 3 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in large groups, sometimes with shrimps.
    
    Other info:  "Although related to shrimps, the rear of their bodies, including
                  the tail section, is bent under towards the ventral region,
                  making them look almost crab-like at first glance. They also
                  appear to have four pairs of legs, but they do have five like
                  shrimps do. The fifth pair is small and has degenerated, making
                  it difficult to see."  
    
                 "The hydrothermal vents where this species live are home to

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually in groups, often accompanied by crabs.
    
    Other info:  "Their eyes have degenerated and been lost, and because of the
                  transparency of their bodies, the internal organs are also
                  semi-transparent. They have bacteria living in their gills, but
                  the reason for this is currently unknown." 
    
                 "The areas of hydrothermal vents which they inhabit release water
                  at temperatures of approximately 300 degrees, making it an
                  extremely dangerous place to live. However, equipped with special
                  heat-sensitive organs on their backs, they are able to avoid
                  entering areas of boiling water. Still, specimens with partially

                  seen living alone in coral-covered areas. Larger numbers may be
                  seen during the spawning season."
    
                 "Reaching lengths of up to 2m and weights of 200kg, this fish is
                  the largest member of the Wrasse family. It is a popular fish to
                  look at and is often seen living in aquariums. However, the
                  recent fall in numbers in the wild has caused this fish to
                  qualify for international protection."

                  (IT) Coriferna cavallina
    
    Description:  Looks like a prettily-coloured tuna that ran into a wall and came
                  off worst.
    
                 "A narrow fish with a long body and a length of 2m. It has a large,
                  blunt forehead. Its body is dark green with a mixed gold and
                  silver underside that seems to shine."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly during the autumn in the Marige Atoll area."
    
                  Also there in Spring.
    
    Length:       2 m / 7 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary or in small groups stalking Flying Fish.
    
    Other info:  "Males' heads stretch as they grow and become one of their
                  distinctive features. After they die, their bodies turn a
                  whitish-blue colour and they lose their shine. They live near
                  the surface and are often found below other creatures when
                  young."
    
                 "They can swim at speeds in excess of 60 km/h when pursuing
                  Cypselurus agoo agoo. When their quarry leaps out of the water
                  in an attempt to escape, they jump as well and have been known to
                  reach heights of six metres above the water."

    Description:  Long, thin and mean-looking.
    
                 "Its body is long and thin, with a large mouth full of sharp teeth
                  and a length of 2m. It is silvery-white and has numerous dark
                  lines running down its body."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen during the summer and autumn in the Green Garden
                  area."
    
    Length:       2 m / 7 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary.
    
    Other info:  "The top and bottom sections of its caudal fin are pointed, with a
                  portion cut out from the centre, which help to tell this fish
                  apart from other species. Adults tend to live in groups in
                  coral-covered areas, but infants live in locations which have a
                  mixture of fresh and salt water."  
    
                 "This fish is able to swim at speeds in excess of 100 km/h and has
                  a tendency to approach shiny objects. therefore, it is advised
                  not to attach shiny objects to yourself when diving due to the
                  risk of being charged at."

    Length:       1 m / 3 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Swims in large slow-moving shoals.
    
    Other info:  "There are other similar-looking species, but they can be told
                  apart by the distinct protrusion this species has at the centre
                  point on the edge of its caudal fin. They swim in large shoals,
                  and are often active at night." 
    
                 "Innumerable individuals gather and form gigantic shoals.
                  Depending on the flow of the tide, the shoal adopts various forms
                  such as circles and spirals."

    Description:  A big ugly pink fish - you will recognise it immediately. 
    
                 "A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body and a length of 1m. It has
                  a distinctive nodule-like protrusion on its head and lower jaw.
                  Its body is red with a lighter red underside." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly in the Knives Reef area during the winter."
    
                  Can also be seen around man-made structures.
    
    Length:       1 m / 3 ft (looks bigger than this in the game)
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary or in small groups.
    
    Other info:  "The protrusions and lower jaws of females and infants are smaller
                  than those found on males. Infants' colouring differs from that
                  of adults and is orange. White lines run along its sides and with
                  the exception of the pectoral fins, all the others have a black
                  pattern on them. Males live among numerous females and are highly
                  territorial. Because of this, males engage in vicious bouts of
                  fighting."
    
                 "As with this species, coris and parrotfish change colours as they
                  grow and the male and female patterns are indistinguishable.
                  Because of this, the first colour they have is referred to as the
                  'initial phase' and the final one as the 'terminal phase'."

    Length:       1.2 m / 4 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary.
    
    Other info:  "Upon reaching adulthood, this fish can weigh up to 100kg. When 
                  reaching old age, the stripes will fade and its body will become
                  darker in colour. Living near reefs, this fish stays in its hole
                  during the day, but comes out at night to feed."
    
                 "Immediately after hatching, the infants are no more than 2mm in
                  length, which is smaller than the sea bream and the flounder. At
                  this time they bear no resemblance to the adults, but as they
                  mature, they take on the same shape."

    Behaviour:    Only two of them, both in the same slightly cramped place.
    
    Other info:  "The end of its dorsal finis elongated and thread-like and is
                  split into two parts. Sometimes called the 'Silver King' due to
                  its shiny silver body. Able to inhabit both fresh and salt

    Description:  The epitome of what a shark looks like.
    
                 "Its body is spindle-shaped, 7m in length, and its caudal fin
                  resembles the crescent moon. The caudal fin joint features a small
                  protuberance. Its body is blue with a white underside."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen during the autumn and winter in the Rock Land area."

    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary, sometimes in loose groups.
    
    Other info:  "Said to reach up to two tonnes, this is the largest marine
                  predator alive. Its sharp, serrated teeth are ideal for tearing
                  flesh from its prey. It lives in depths of up to hundreds of
                  metres and feeds on large fish and marine mammals. It is also
                  known to attack human beings, though not intentionally as it
                  mistakes swimmers for other marine creatures."
    
                 "From the records available, the largest specimen measures 7.3m.
                  Due to its large size, only the head section was measured and the
                  total length was calculated as an average using a formula. Its 
                  ancestor was the megalodon, which is said to have had measured up

                 "It has a spindle-shaped body, a uniquely shaped head that bears an
                  uncanny resemblance to the letter "T", and a length of 4m. It has
                  a grey body, white underside and its pectoral fins are quite

    Other info:  "At the extremes of both sides of its head are the eyes and
                  nostrils. This creature is believed to have exceptional senses of
                  sight and smell. In addition to this, the unique shape of its
                  head endows it with superior circling abilities."
    
                 "They have been known to form shoals of up to a hundred, and they
                  are said to have a kind of social order. They often become scared
                  by the sound of divers' air bubbles and do not make any attempts
                  to approach. However, there is still a chance that they'll attack
                  so caution should be exercised."

                 "The biggest species of fish in the world with a massive body and
                  mouth. It also has three line-shaped protrusions coming from the
                  sides of its body. Its body is blue with a white underside and

    Length:       15 m / 50 ft (?)
    
    Forms:        adult only

    Other info:  "Inside its mouth is a multitude of small teeth. Plankton and
                  small fish are pulled inside, then the water is expelled leaving
                  only the food behind. In place of an air bladder, oil accumulates
                  in its liver giving it extra buoyancy. Living up to around a
                  hundred metres below the surface, its swimming routes are said to
                  cover vast areas." 
    
                 "Once thought to lay its eggs externally, a female was caught and
                  examined and around 300 empty eggs and embryos were discovered
                  inside. It was learned that inside adult females, the eggs are
                  hatched in the ovoviviparity. This specimen was relatively young
                  and measured only 10m. It is believed that fully-grown adults

    Other info:  "Its eyes are large and it thus has exceptional vision which 
                  enables it to hunt successfully at night. the dark patches on its
                  body have a dull and glossy metallic shine to them. It swims in

                 "They gather the fish and squid they prey on into a single area,
                  and shake their caudal fin spines hard to beat and weaken their
                  prey. Once the prey is weakened, they can feed at their leisure.
                  they have a seemingly docile temperament and, as long as they
                  aren't given any cause for alarm, are thought to be no threat to

                  consists of a light yellow base with a black striped pattern.
                  They live around coral reefs and near the ocean floor and tend to
                  be most active at night.
    
                 "Sharks have developed a sensory organ capable of detecting faint
                  electrical fields, known as Ampullae of Lorenzini, and this is
                  especially advanced in this species. though t can detect
                  creatures hiding in the sand, it has several limitations such as
                  that its effective range is limited and it cannot detect targets 
                  that are insulated."

                  (IT) Manta gigante
    
    Description: "It has a flat, diamond-shaped body, large mouth and thin tail, and
                  a length of 5m. Its body is black and has a white underside that
                  is speckled with black marks."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all around Manaurai all year round." 
    
    Length:       5 m / 16 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually solitary, but there is one unmissable big school of them
                  swimming in formation.
    
    Other info:  "Located to the left and right of its mouth are special fins that
                  have evolved from its pectoral fins. there is a large amount of
                  variation to the speckled markings in its underside, and some
                  specimens look completely black. It is thought that the name 
                  'manta' which means 'blanket' or 'cloak', was given to this
                  creature because of its shape."
    
                 "The worlds largest ray, said to reach a maximum size of 8m and a
                  weight of 3 tonnes. On rare occasions it is said to jump out of
                  the water. It is believed that one reason for this is because it
                  has been startled or is trying to detach a parasite."

    Description:  A small brown, rounded, striped shark.
    
                 "The size of its head is large, but the overall size gets smaller
                  and thinner towards the tail section. It has a brown body with
                  about ten darker brown stripes around it and a length of 1m."
    
    Location:    "Adults can be seen all year round in the Rock Land area."
    
    Length:       1 m / 3 ft
    
    Forms:        eggs, young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Spends most of its time lying on the seabed.
    
                  Lays eggs in summer that hatch in winter. You will get an e-mail.
    
    Other info:  "The protrusions sticking up above its eyes earned it the name
                  'bullhead shark' in English. Its enlarged, solid teeth are even 
                  strong enough to enable it to eat turban shells." 
    
                 "This fish lays very distinctive eggs which come out in a 15cm
                  spiral shape. This shape serves its purpose well as the eggs can
                  fit perfectly between the cracks in rocks and be buried in the
                  sand on the ocean floor, which makes it difficult for them to be
                  carried away by the current."

    Description:  A thin, underfed-looking shark, but too small to worry about.
    
                 "It has a long, thin body, a wide head, a short rounded snout and a
                  length of 50cm. Its body is brown with an intricate white
                  pattern."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the south east regions of Manaurai all year round."
    
    Length:       50 cm / 20 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Mostly close to the sea bed.
    
    Other info:  "Their bodies are covered in large, coarse scales and their eyes
                  are slits. Also, females tend to have bite marks left on their
                  bodies. These are made during mating when males use their mouths
                  to secure their bodies to the females'." 
    
                 "These fish, like sharks and rays, are classified into the
                  Cartilaginous fish category as the majority of their skeleton
                  is made up of soft bone. This kind of skeleton doesn't fossilise
                  easily, meaning that although hard sharks' teeth have been
                  discovered, it is extremely rare to find an entire shark
                  skeleton."

    Description:  It's a turtle!
    
                 "Its head, legs and tail protrude out of an oval-shaped shell and
                  it has a length of 2m. Its front legs are elongated and shaped
                  like fins, while its jaw is serrated. Its body is dark green with
                  a light yellow underside."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen around Manaurai all year round."
    
    Length:       2 m / 7 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Solitary, and a determined-looking swimmer.
    
                  Does not take food - probably it is the wrong sort - but responds
                  to petting and poking.
    
    Other info:  "This creature has five hard plates (known as midline plates) on
                  its shell running down the central area and four others on each
                  side of it. Unlike their land-dwelling cousins, these turtles
                  cannot retract their heads and fins into their shells. They live
                  in water up to tens of metres deep and, unlike other sea
                  creatures, are strict herbivores."
    
                 "Due to a dramatic decrease in numbers, this species is on the
                  verge of extinction. The reasons for this are a lack of spawning
                  area due to seawall renovation, egg theft, fishing and being
                  caught with other fish, mistakenly consuming plastic bags and
                  contracting Fibropapilloma tumours. Human beings are to blame
                  for a large proportion of the reasons."

    Description: "It has a long, thin body with a wide head, a short snout with a
                  circular marking and a length of 1.7m. Its body is grey and the
                  underside is white.  Also, it has a black pattern and several
                  dark lines."
    
    Location:    "Can be found in areas scattered with man-made debris all year
                  round."
    
    Length:       1.7 m / 6 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Likes to rest among the debris. Just don't poke it.
    
                  Well, I warned you.
    
    Other info:  "There are two spines on their snouts. Their eggs hatch internally
                  and they can give birth to up to twenty infants at a time. After
                  hatching, the infants receive the necessary nourishment by eating
                  the egg yolks. They live in rocky areas or places near the ocean
                  floor and feed on cephalopoda and other small fish."
    
                 "Since they live in areas prone to environmental change, such as
                  coastal areas and shallows, they are very adaptable creatures.
                  They have very quiet and calm personalities and so are often seen
                  at aquariums."

                  (IT) Squalo spallina
    
    Description: "It has a long, thin body with fat, rounded snout and a length of
                  90cm. Its body is brown and there are two dorsal fins on the rear
                  section."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the Knives Reef area all year round."
    
    Length:       90 cm / 3 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Not the best looking shark, but quite friendly.
    
                  Likes to play with you when happy.
    
    Other info:  "They have black spots and thin dark lines over their bodies.
                  Also, they have a large, white-edged black pattern slightly to
                  the rear of their pectoral fins."
    
                 "Often found hiding below coral or rocky areas, when this species
                  ventures out in search of food, it uses its pectoral fins to 
                  move around the ocean floor. The 'epaulette' in its name was
                  taken from the decoration commonly found on the shoulder of
                  uniforms as the markings just behind its pectoral fins bear a
                  certain resemblance."

    Description: "With a length of 3m, the front section of its body resembles that
                  of a ray, but the rear is like that of a shark. Its body is brown
                  with a white underside and patches of white scattered on its
                  back"
    
    Locations:   "Can be seen mostly in the Rock Land area all year round."
    
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft (They come in a range of sizes in the game, this is
                  the biggest)
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Swims close to the sea bed
    
    Other info:  "Their bodies are covered in fine scales and there are several
                  spines on their backs. they have numerous plate-like teeth which
                  they can use to grind up and eat solid foods like crustaceans and
                  shellfish."
    
                 "Despite their resemblances to both sharks and rays, they are
                  closer to rays. The reason for this distinction is the position
                  of the hole linking their gill clefts to the outside. For rays
                  this is located in the ventral region, but for sharks it's the
                  back."

    Length:       2.1 m / 7 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Usually sticks close to the sea bed, but if you befriend it
                  enough it will follow you and apparently try to saw your leg off.
                  Most disconcerting.
    
                  Seems to respond only to being patted.
    
    Other info:  "Their long snouts are filled with dozens of saw-like teeth, and
                  their bodies are covered in sharp scales known as 'squama
                  placoidea'."
    
                 "Their long snouts are used to overturn the sand on the ocean
                  floor in order to find food. Once they unearth their prey, they
                  weaken it by hitting it with their snouts. Much about this ray

    Behaviour:    More active than many of the sharks.
    
    Other info:  "Their vast mouths are located at the front of their bodies and
                  are adapted to be able to capture prey swimming over their heads.
                  though they have flat bodies, they are still recognised as
                  sharks. They live on the ocean floor." 
    
                 "Sharks, including those in this species, have innumerable small
                  protrusions on them that give them a rough exterior. The
                  function of these protrusions is to adjust the water flow
                  effectively enabling them to swim faster. The rough skin of this
                  species was once used to make sword handles and files."

                  Responds well to patting and food.
    
    Other info:  "One of their distinctive features is their long tails which can
                  be up to twice the length of their bodies. There is a species
                  that is also part of the Dasyatidae family which resembles this
                  fish, but can be told apart by the slightly pointed appearance of
                  its body. they live buried on the ocean floor and are not very
                  active creatures."

                  (ES) Raya látigo manchada
                  (IT) Trigone
    
    Description: "It has a low, oval-shaped body with a long tail containing a
                  poisonous spine, and a length of 3m. Its body is dark grey with a
                  brown underside and a black pattern on its back."
    
    Location:    "It likes enclosed environments and can be seen all year round."
    
                  There is just one specimen, found in a particular place.
    
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    (?)
    
    Other info:  "When compared with other rays, this species stands out due to the
                  thickness of its body. There is some colour variation among this
                  species, with some specimens being entirely black, but all having
                  black patterns scattered over their bodies."
    
                 "Upon sensing danger, they move with their backs arched and raise
                  their tails to push the spine section forward. If pierced by the
                  spine, a large wound is left and poison enters the body.
                  Therefore, aggravating this creature is not advised."

                  (ES) Marlín rayado
                  (IT) Pesce lancia striato
    
    Description: "It has a long body, a cone-shaped and very pointed snout and a
                  length of 3.5m. The front portion of its dorsal fin is high, but
                  it gets steadily smaller as it approaches the rear of the fish.
                  It is dark blue with a silvery-white underside."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly in the Deep Valley area all year round." 
    
                  Sometimes found in other places too.
    
    Length:       3.5 m / 11 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    A smooth fast swimmer - and not easy to photograph for that
                  reason. There are usually several around at once.
    
    Other info:  "Its ventral fin is extremely long and thin, and there are small
                  protuberances near the caudal fin joint. It is believed that
                  these provide momentum when the fish is swimming. There are also
                  several pale blue stripes running down the sides of its body."
    
                 "They approach their prey at high speeds and weaken their prey 
                  with their long snouts to devour it. Its pointed appearance may
                  give the impression that it is used to stab prey, but the snout
                  is actually used to strike the prey. It is only very rarely used
                  to stab."

                  (IT) Marlin
    
    Description: "It has a long body, large sail-shaped dorsal fin, pointed snout
                  and a length of 3.5m. Its body is dark blue with a pale silver
                  underside and small, black spots scattered on its dorsal fin."
    
                  Usually swims with its extendable dorsal fin folded down and
                  looks a bit like a Marlin.
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly around the Deep Valley area all year round." 
    
    Length:       3.5 m / 11 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Raises its sail when tapped, which looks more impressive in
                  photographs.
    
    Other info:  "They open their large dorsal fins to confuse their prey while
                  hunting then strike using their pointed snouts. They have
                  approximately ten pale blue lines running down the sides of their
                  bodies. They swim at high speed very near the surface of the
                  water."
    
                 "They have streamlined bodies that allow their dorsal fins and
                  ventral fins to be retracted enabling reduced water resistance,
                  they also have protruding lines that keep them stabilised when
                  swimming. They can reach speeds of 100 km/h and are believed to
                  be the fastest fish on record."

                  (ES) Atún rojo
                  (IT) Tonno rosso
    
    Description: "A spindle-shaped fish with a length of 3m and a very thin caudal
                  fin joint. Its head is large and cone-shaped with small eyes. Its
                  back is brown and black and the underside is silver-white."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen swimming in shoals in the Deep Valley area mostly
                  during Autumn."
    
                  Sometimes found in other seasons. Also in the Ancestral Reef in
                  spring.
    
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Can be hard to find, as it swims a quite a shallow depth over
                  the deepest of waters. 
    
    Other info:  "The largest among tuna, sometimes weighing up to 500kg. They
                  have a protuberance near their tail section that keeps their
                  bodies from sinking."
    
                 "These fish open their mouths while swimming and extract the
                  oxygen from the water that passes through their gills. As
                  stopping would result in suffocation, they slightly reduce their
                  metabolism at night and swim at a slower speed."

                  (IT) Pastinaca a macchie blu
    
    Description:  A small bright-green ray 
    
                 "It has a low oval-shaped body with a long tail containing a
                  poisonous spine, and a length of 70cm. Its body is yellow-green
                  with a large blue pattern on its back. ...  In the Paoul Republic
                  it has a name meaning 'green light'."
    
    Location:    "It tends to lurk in underwater caves, where it can be seen all
                  year round."          
    
    Length:       70 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    This fish is the basis of the Manaurai legend(email from Douglas):
                      
                 "The only person to escape the tunnel was the Queen's handmaid who 
                  followed a mysterious green light and found her way out. A green
                  object... maybe it is somehow connected to that cave"
    
                  As such it is, of course, to be found in the tunnels and caves at
                  Mermaid's Grotto - in each place, stationed near the way out.
    
                  Responds to petting and feeding. 
    
    Other info:  "Their eyes protrude from their heads and they have wide spiracles
                  behind them. They have strong teeth that allow them to eat hard
                  substances such as crustaceans. They have two blue lines
                  stretching from the joint to the tip of their tails."
    
                 "This species hunts by blowing the sand away from targets hiding
                  on the ocean floor before capturing its prey. An interesting fact
                  about this species is that it does not conceal itself under the
                  sand."

                  (IT) Pastinaca
    
    Description:  A ray with a distinctive paddle on the end of its long tail. 
    
                 "It has a low oval-shaped body with a long tail containing a
                  poisonous spine, and a length of 3m. Its body is light brown with
                  a white underside."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the Sunshine Beach area all year round."         
    
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Thrashes its tail around to show off.
    
    Other info:  "This species has a distinctive large, pleated section of skin
                  that spans the length of their tail. They live on the ocean
                  floor, hiding under the sand with just their protruding eyes
                  visible."
                    
                 "By using the spiracles located near their eyes, this species can
                  suck in seawater and send it directly to their gills to breathe.
                  the reason it breathes using this method is because if it were to
                  suck in seawater from below, it would also take in sand."

    Description:  Long, narrow and silvery. 
    
                 "A narrow fish with a long, thin silver body and a length of 1.5m.
                  The rear section of its tail is elongated and thread-like."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the Deep Valley all year round." 
    
                  For some reason this fish is often tricky to find. Look to the
                  extreme west of the Deep Valley area.         
    
    Length:       1.5 m / 5 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Lives in a big obvious shoal that never moves. 
    
    Other info:  "They have protruding lower jaws and sharp teeth in their mouths.
                  While their dorsal fins stretch the entire length of their backs,
                  they have no ventral or caudal fins. They are usually to be
                  found in quite deep water and near the ocean floor swimming in
                  shoals, but come closer to the surface when searching for food." 
    
                 "They swim in an upright position, waiting for prey to swim
                  overhead before ambushing them. They swim in a horizontal
                  position when going at full speed and juveniles tend to lower
                  their heads when swimming. Their bodies don't have scales."

    Description:  Long, very narrow and red. 
    
                 "It has a long, thin, red body with tube-like snout and a length of
                  2m. Also, the centre of its tail section is elongated and
                  thread-like."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen mainly during the winter in the Wild Channel area."
    
                  Has been observed out of season hovering over deep cracks - both
                  in enclosed areas and in the open sea.         
    
    Length:       2 m / 7 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Lives in loose groups of a few fish. 
    
    Other info:  "This creature is often called names like 'flute' or 'clarinet'
                  due to its physical resemblance to the wind instruments. Young
                  specimens can be seen around the shore or areas of algae and
                  aren't always red."
    
                 "The suction power of their slender snout increases when sucking
                  in and eating small creatures. Also the snout, once dried out,
                  is said to be used in Chinese medicine."

    Description:  Long, squat, inactive brown fish. 
    
                 "It has a long, brown body with a fat front section, and a length
                  of 1.3m. Also, its dorsal fin stretches from the rear of its head
                  to its tail section."
    
    Location:    "Can be found in areas with numerous man-made objects all year
                  round."
    
                  You will need to look carefully, it likes to hide itself away.
    
    Length:       1.3 m / 4 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    A very shy fish, it takes a lot of effort to befriend - but it 
                  will respond eventually. 
    
    Other info:  "This species likes eating crustaceans and other shellfish. When 
                  they do so, the large, pointed teeth at the front of their mouths
                  ensure that the prey doesn't escape and the molars in the rear
                  grind up the shells so that the food can be eaten. They inhabit
                  the gaps between rocks around reefs."
    
                 "During the winter, this species lays adhesive egg clusters. Then,
                  the parent wraps their body around the cluster and protects it
                  until it hatches four months later."

    Description:  Long, squat, inactive brown fish. 
    
                 "It has a long body, a large mouth full of sharp teeth and a length
                  of 80cm. It has no scales, pectoral fins or ventral fins. It is
                  light yellow with an intricate black pattern over its body."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all year round in the Rock Land area."
    
                  You will see it sticking its head out of a hole in the rock.
    
    Length:       80 cm / 3 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    It is accompanied by cleaner fish that are not identified in the
                  game.   
    
    Other info:  "Instead of three separate fins, it has the dorsal, tail and
                  caudal fins connected to form one thick fin. Living in rocky
                  areas or places covered in coral, it will defend its territory
                  if intruders venture too close. It also has its mouth and body
                  cleaned by shrimps or small fish, so it is not unusual to see it
                  with its mouth agape for long periods of time."   
    
                 "Infants are referred to as 'leptocephalus' and use ocean currents
                  to carry them over great distances. To help them achieve this, 
                  their bodies are light, ribbon-like and don't sink easily. Though
                  we have learned that eels and conger eels share the same infancy
                  period, we still have a lot to discover about them."

    Length:       1.3 m / 4 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Mostly lies on the sea bed, but can be encouraged to swim.
    
    Other info:  "Inside its gaping mouth are sharp teeth that can fold inwards.
                  The protuberance on the back of its head is believed to be a
                  dorsal fin spine that has changed shape."
    
                 "The protuberance on the back of its head includes a lure-like
                  section at the end. The fish hides in the sand with only the
                  protuberance sticking out and then, as soon as it attracts some
                  prey towards it, the fish sucks it into its mouth along with a
                  large amount of water. This species is able to eat creatures up
                  to half the size of its own body when it opens its mouth fully."

                  (IT) Halibut
    
    Description:  A brown flatfish. 
    
                 "It has a flat, oval-shaped body with both eyes placed on the left
                  side and a length of 80cm. The side which includes the eyes is
                  brown and the side without is white. For protection it can change
                  the colour of the side its eyes are on to match that of the
                  environment."
    
                  Young fish are smaller and paler.
    
    Location:    "Can be seen in the Rock Land area all year round."
    
                  Young are found under glows, usually in enclosed areas or areas
                  with man made debris.
    
    Length:       80 cm / 3 ft 
    
    Forms:        young, adult
    
    Behaviour:    Mostly lies on the sea bed, moves if prodded.  
    
                  Likes food, but not when placed directly in front of it. Drop some
                  food somewhere else and it will respond enthusiastically.
    
    Other info:  "Its mouth is extraordinarily large with a row of teeth on both
                  the upper and lower parts of the jaw. After hatching, this
                  species soon begins drifting and has an eye on either side of its
                  body like most fish. It lives on the seabed, blending into its
                  sandy surroundings."
    
                 "When its eyes are around 1mm in size the right eye begins to move
                  left. When they reach about 12 mm, they arrive at the back of the
                  head and the fish begins to lie on its side. The reason for this
                  is to protect their eyes from injury. Plaice and flatfish can be 
                  told apart by the way their heads face when laid flat. Flatfish
                  face the left and plaice face the right."

                 "Its body is wide and flat with a dorsal fin near the rear of its
                  body and has rounded pectoral fins. It has a length of 4m and its
                  body is a mixture of grey, dark brown and brown. Also, it has a
                  dark mesh-like pattern on it."
    
    Location:    "Can be found in areas scattered with man-made debris all year

    Length:       4 m / 13 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Mostly lies on the sea bed, moves if prodded. 
    
    Other info:  "They have wide mouths which contain long thin teeth. Also, there
                  are a number of hairs stemming from the areas around their mouths
                  which resemble fishing lures and are used to draw prey near. They
                  live near the ocean floor, mimicking their surroundings."
    
                 "Usually staying motionless on the ocean floor, when prey draws
                  close or a predator approaches, this species launches an attack.
                  Because of the protective colouration of this species, it is very
                  easy to approach and accidentally aggravate it. Therefore, upon
                  entering areas where they are known to lurk, it is a good idea to
                  exercise caution."

    Description:  Big pink jellyfish. 
    
                 "With a diameter of 2m, the dome-shaped upper section has numerous
                  'oral arms' descending from it. Its body is a light pink colour."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen at night around the Underwater Ruins of Marige Atoll
                  all year round."
    
    Diameter:     2 m / 6 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Active, shoaling creature.
    
    Other info:  "From the oral arms protrude a large number of thread-like
                  tentacles that can reach lengths of over 5m. Other than light
                  pink, there are also brown and grey specimens. They make use of
                  ocean currents to move great distances and occasionally appear in
                  huge numbers." 
    
                 "Shrimp known as 'Latreutes anoplonyx' and measuring around 3cm
                  have a symbiotic relationship with this jellyfish. The jellyfish
                  protects the shrimp with its tentacles in exchange for the shrimp
                  cleaning it by eating organic matter stuck on its body.
                  Sometimes, hundreds of shrimp can be seen on a single jellyfish."

    Description:  A very large round grey fish. 
    
                 "A narrow, half oval-shaped fish with a height of 3m. At the rear
                  it has large dorsal and anal fins. It has a grey body, a light
                  grey underside and a white pattern adorning its back." 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen during the winter around the Marige Atoll area."
    
                  This huge fish is incapable of hiding itself and can be found
                  somewhere in every season. It is worth checking the Deep Valley
                  area too.
    
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Huge leisurely fish. Sometimes found in small groups, but
                  individuals can often be seen in shallower waters.
    
    Other info:  "Both the upper and lower sections of its jaw have a single flat,
                  plate-like tooth. While they have no obvious caudal fin, a
                  section of their dorsal and anal fins have changed to form a
                  rudder fin. Just after hatching, infants have spines on their
                  bodies. They live in water up to hundreds of metres deep and have
                  been known to jump above the sea's surface on rare occasions." 
    
                 "Although it is believed that the reason they swim on their sides
                  just below the surface is to remove parasites, the details of
                  this are still largely unknown. This fish lays up to 300,000,000
                  eggs, which makes it a record holder among all living species.
                  However due to the majority being eaten by other creatures, the
                  amount that make it to adulthood is comparatively less."

    Behaviour:    Big leisurely fish. Usually in small groups.
    
    Other info:  "One distinctive feature of this species is its horizontally
                  elongated pectoral fins. Their young are long and thin, and bear 
                  a resemblance to Regalecus glesne offspring. they have a white

                 "Closely resembling a Mola mola, which has the English name
                  'mambo' or 'sunfish', this species is called 'moonfish'. Despite
                  the above classification, this fish is a relative of the

    Behaviour:    (?)
    
    Other info:  "Young fish belonging to the Macrouridae family do not leave the
                  outer layer of their habitation area, making discoveries very

                 "Through the process of evolution, the Macrouridae family has
                  adapted to various environments. It is broadly divided into two
                  families, Macrourinae and Bathyganidae. They both have their
                  distinctive points: the Macrourinae have ctenoid scales (scales
                  with spines coming out of the rear) and the Bathyganidae have

    Location:    "Can be seen in relatively deep water all year round."
    
                  An easy fish to miss. Most people will swim straight past it the 
                  first few times. Get into deep water and think laterally.
    
    Length:       60 cm / 2 ft 
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    (?)
    
    Other info:  "The  dorsal and ventral fins of infants less than 1cm in size are
                  elongated. During the day, they dwell several hundred metres
                  down, but at night they swim in relatively shallow waters."
    
                 "Inside the fish's eyeball is a system known as the 'tapetum'
                  which allows their eyes to be re-stimulated by light reflected
                  from within them. It is especially useful when in the dark
                  depths of the sea where little light can reach. The reason you
                  can see them with gold-coloured eyes is due to the tapetum."

    Behaviour:    (?)
    
    Other info:  "The sides of this fish are sparsely covered with scales, but have
                  an abundance of spines. Its underside consists of areas of 
                  underdeveloped scales without spines. Living in depths of up to
                  thousands of metres, it is a similar species to the Spendid
                  alfonsino, though it does not resemble it physically."
    
                 "This fish swims around looking for food and uses its large mouth
                  and long teeth to devour its prey. Their teeth have reached such

                 "Once a male finds a female, he will attach himself to her with
                  his teeth. The male will then become connected to the female's
                  blood system and get nourishment directly from her. When she is
                  at her most suitable time for fertilisation, the male can release
                  his sperm. It is a beneficial time for both genders. One female

    Description:  A pink blob.
    
                 "It has a soft gelatinous body, numerous whiskers around its mouth
                  and a length of 42cm. Its body is pink with dark wavy patterns
                  dotted over it."

    Length:       42 cm / 17 in
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Adopts a threatening posture when poked.
    
    Other info:  "Its left and right ventral fins combine to form a single sucker.
                  They inhabit rocky areas from ten to thousands of metres down,
                  and use their suckers to attach themselves to rocks."
    
                 "In the deep sea where this species lives, there are many
                  similarly coloured and silver-coloured species. These colours
                  hide the species from predators. Another thing is that the only
                  light that reaches deep into the ocean is blue light, which can
                  be absorbed by red-coloured objects to become an inconspicuous
                  dark colour."

    Description:  Large gentle shark.
    
                 "It is cylindrical with an extremely large head and mouth, and a
                  body that gets smaller towards the rear with a length of 5.6m. Its
                  body is black and the underside is white."

    Length:       5.6 m / 18 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    There's just the one, and it likes its own enclosed home.
    
    Other info:  "Because they feed on plankton and other small creatures, their
                  teeth are only a few millimetres in size. The name comes from the
                  extraordinarily large mouth that this creature has. Tends to swim
                  at depths of several hundred metres during the day, but comes up
                  to the surface at night."
    
                 "When it opens its jaw, the white band running from the tip of its
                  nose becomes visible. It is thought that, because this line
                  remains visible in deep, dark areas of the ocean, it is used to
                  attract food towards it in the shape of small creatures. Much
                  about this shark still remains a mystery as few have been
                  captured since its discovery around thirty years ago."

    Behaviour:    Is fond of the ink that the underwater pen uses.
    
    Other info:  "The English name 'frilled shark' comes from the frill-like
                  pattern of skin around the species' six sets of gills. Also, they
                  have numerous three-pronged teeth which, with the exception of
                  this species, are only seen in fossils and are considered to be
                  very primitive kinds of teeth."
    
                 "With its long, thin body and a face that can hardly be called
                  charming, they may be behind the tales of giant sea serpents told
                  around the world. However, at less than two metres in length they
                  are far shorter than most boats and thus probably not related to
                  the mythical beasts said to entwine themselves around boats,
                  leaving their true identity a mystery."

    Other info:  "Their teeth are thin and long and point slightly inwards. Their
                  mouths can be pushed forward. After death, their entire body
                  becomes congested with blood and turns red followed by brown."
    
                 "They use the sensory organs on their elongated snouts to search
                  for food on the ocean floor and, after locating something
                  suitable, push their mouths forward to retrieve and swallow it.
                  This species was named after the person who discovered it and the

    Behaviour:    Patrols the whale's graveyard. Does not like being prodded. Try
                  the underwater pen.
    
    Other info:  "Inside their mouths are different types of teeth. Those on the
                  upper jaw are long and sharp, designed to catch their prey, and
                  those on the lower jaw are used to separate their catch into
                  smaller pieces. Their eyes are an attractive fluorescent green.
                  They live at depths from hundreds to thousands of metres and come

                  mobility is lower than that of modern, more evolved sharks as
                  their upper jaw is connected to their cranial bones in two

    Other info:  "Until rediscovered in the 20th century, these fish were thought
                  to have become extinct around 80m years ago. They are often
                  referred to as 'living fossils'. It has four muscular, scaled
                  fins. In addition to those, between the dorsal and anal fin, is a
                  small caudal fin. Together, these three fins look like a single

                  fish are believed to be what land animals developed into arms and
                  legs in the course of evolution. Whatever the case, one thing
                  that we do know is that its flesh is described as 'watery' and

                 "Their bodies, reaching lengths of 40m, are extremely long and

    Behaviour:    It covers its head when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "When they sense danger, they raise their tentacles in order to
                  protect their bodies. In addition to this, they have several 
                  photogenic organs at various points around their bodies, which
                  they can use to escape from predators or other threatening
                  situations. From the tips of their tentacles, they can discharge
                  a shining viscous liquid."

                  are said to be the distant ancestors of both octopi and squid."

    Other info:  "Eight of the ten tentacles have two rows of suckers on them. The
                  remaining two exceed the length of the others and have four rows
                  of suckers at the tip. Also, their eyes are approximately 50cm
                  in diameter making them the biggest of all animals'."
    
                 "With reports of giant sucker marks on sperm whales that feed on
                  giant squids and reports of a specimen of 27m in the past, there
                  may be giant specimens bigger than those on official record.
                  However, the credibility of past reports is poor and the suction
                  marks on whales grow as they age, so we don't know exactly how
                  large they grow."

                  can reach other members from up to 150 km away."
    
                 "This species can swim incredibly quickly for their size and it is
                  believed that around 300,000 once existed. However, with the
                  advent of high speed vessels and explosive harpoons during the
                  late nineteenth century, their numbers decreased rapidly due to
                  over-fishing. though hunting no longer continues, they are
                  endangered with numbers around 5,000."

    Description:  A fat whale.
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped black body, a large head and a length of
                  16m. The upper section of its lower jaw is curved like an arch."
    
    Location:    "Can be seen all year round in the Wild Channel area."
    
                  Swims a figure-of-eight through the Wild Channel, turning round
                  in the wider sections at either end.
    
    Length:       16 m / 52 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only
    
    Behaviour:    Responds to the whistle by calling back. Grab it to hitch a ride.
    
    Other info:  "Their heads are covered in large, nodule-like protrusions, with
                  the ones located at the tip of its upper jaw being particularly
                  large. These are used as a means of identification for individual
                  whales. They have no dorsal fin, resulting in a smooth and
                  sleek-looking back."
    
                 "They swim at a slow pace and have a thick layer of blubber
                  meaning that, even after death, they float on the surface. Due to
                  their speed, they were easy targets for whalers, who saw them as
                  an abundant source of oil and baleen. Over-fishing, however, lead
                  to a sharp decline in their numbers and they have since become a
                  protected species."

    Other info:  "Its upper and lower jaw and front section of its pectoral fins
                  all have scattered nodule-like protrusions. The one on the upper
                  jaw is a sensory hair that gives the whale the ability to sense
                  water currents. It migrates from cold regions to warm regions
                  according to the seasons."
    
                 "During the mating season, males sing elaborate songs to attract
                  females. These songs have a fixed style and, although they differ
                  slightly, each creature uses basically the same pattern. The
                  songs change a little each year. When the Voyager 1 space probe
                  was launched in 1977, it took with it data about the earth in
                  case of extraterrestrial contact. These songs were among that
                  data."

    Other info:  "Although the teeth in the upper jaw are under-developed, its
                  lower jaw is lined with cone-shaped ones. Despite having teeth,
                  it usually swallows squid and other creatures it feeds on whole.
                  The teeth are used for fights between males and to bring back
                  food for calves. They swim between the surface and depths of up
                  to thousands of metres."
    
                 "Females take good care of their young but, when they dive in
                  search of food, the calves remain close to the surface. To
                  prevent anything happening to them, females in the group dive
                  alternately so that some remain. If a predator attacks, the calf
                  retreats to the centre of the group. This is known as the
                  'marguerite formation' as it resembles a chrysanthemum."

    Behaviour:    Playful when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "They use their teeth to make holes in the ice to enable them to
                  go in and out of the water. As they continue to do this, their
                  teeth gradually become shorter. Most of the time, they swallow
                  fish and other food without chewing, so their remaining teeth are

    Description:  A dark sea lion with a mane of fur.
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped body, slightly elongated nose, thick layer
                  of fat and a length of 2.3m. It has fine fur that is tightly knit
                  and a mane around its neck. Its body is dark grey with the
                  underside being a lighter shade." 
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."
    
                  Also found in the sea at Sunshine Beach in certain months.
    
    Length:       2.3 m / 7 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only (?)
    
    Behaviour:    Playful when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "Males are the largest of any member of the seal family and can
                  reach weights in excess of 300kg. Their fur is black at birth,
                  but as they mature it gradually becomes grey."
    
                 "They usually live in groups of ten or more seals, but this number
                  increases as mating season draws closer and some areas can become
                  home to colonies as large as tens of thousands. They can dive to
                  depths of between fifty and a hundred metres when searching for
                  food."

    Description:  A large, slow grazing animal. 
    
                 "It has a fat, grey, spindle-shaped body, with a long face, a large
                  upper lip and a length of 4.5m. Similar in appearance to dugongs,
                  but can be distinguished by its tail, which is fan-shaped. 
    
    Location:    "Can be seen swimming in the water of the Cascade Pool located in
                  the large limestone cave all year round." 
    
    Length:       4.5 m / 15 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only 
    
    Behaviour:    Sleeps at night.
    
    Other info:  "They have forelimbs shaped like flippers with three claws on each
                  that enable them to hold seaweed. Likely to be the creature
                  responsible for the mermaid legends that appeared even in
                  Columbus' logbook. It's known nowadays though, that most of these
                  sightings can be attributed to this or similar species and that
                  Columbus probably saw a manatee. They live in both fresh and salt
                  water."
    
                 "There are only two members of the Sirenia family; manatees and
                  dugongs. there was another member of this family, known as
                  'Hydrodamalis gigas', but just thirty years after it was
                  discovered, it became extinct due to over-fishing by humans."

    Description:  An otter with webbed feet. 
    
                 "It has a long tail and torso which is covered in two types of fur,
                  short, thick guard hair and a thinner, softer undercoat. It has a
                  length of 1.5m. Its head is white and other areas tend to be
                  brownish." 
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears near boats."
    
                  When it appears it will be floating off the rear deck of the boat
                  where Catherine is looking.   
    
    Length:       1.5 m / 5 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    A charming creature with fascinating feeding habits.
                  Playful when poked.
    
    Other info:  "Its fur consists of approximately 1,000,000,000 strands, which is
                  the largest number among mammals. It can store air between its
                  fur and this gives it protection against the cold as well as
                  added buoyancy. In order to keep its fur in good condition, it
                  has regular grooming sessions."
    
                 "Under their armpits is a pocket-like area where they store
                  shells. With the shells safely stowed, they swim to the surface
                  and attempt to break them open by placing them on their stomachs
                  and hitting them with rocks before eating the contents. Each day
                  they consume between 20% and 30% of their body weight which is
                  essential for them to be able to maintain their body
                  temperature."

                  Its legs are large and wide, but its head and ears are relatively
                  small. Its fur is transparent and the tip of its nose is black.
                  The reason its body looks white is said to be because its
                  transparent fur reflects the sunlight."
    
    Location:     "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats." 
                  
    Length:       3 m / 10 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    Appears with up to three cubs.
    
    Other info:  "It has sharp claws and teeth, and is said to have a bite
                  strength of 800kg/cm2. Males' heads are longer than their necks,
                  while females' heads are wider than their necks. Although they
                  reside around the north pole area, in recent years due to global
                  warming, the area they inhabit has shrunk. this has in turn led
                  to a drastic reduction in their numbers and put them on the
                  verge of extinction."
    
                 "They have an exceptional sense of smell which allows them to
                  sniff out seals that are below the ice. They are at the top of
                  the food chain in the areas they inhabit and have no natural
                  predators. However, on rare occasions when they attack walruses,
                  they often sustain fatal injuries and rarely succeed in killing
                  their opponents."

    Description:  A lizard. 
    
                 "Its body is thick with a long tail and a length of 1.5m. Its feet
                  are webbed and have claws. Its body is brown tinged with black."
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."

    Length:       1.5 m / 5 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    When prodded, does a lizard mating dance.
    
    Other info:  "They have spiny scales on their heads, backs and tails. They eat
                  seaweed and are the only lizards in the world that can swim in
                  the sea. They discharge salt water from their nostrils to relieve
                  the amount of accumulated salt in their bodies."
    
                 "They spend up to two hours a day in the sea and the majority of
                  the rest of their time sunbathing. If their body temperature
                  drops below a certain point, they are unable to move, so the
                  reason for the prolonged sunbathing is because the time spent in
                  the sea causes their body temperature to decrease."

    Description:  Big penguin with yellow neck patches. 
    
                 "It has a spindle-shaped body with a thick layer of fat under its
                  feathers and a height of 1.3m. Compared to its height, it has
                  small wings. Its head is black with a dark grey colour adorning
                  its back and a white underside."
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."
    
                  Can also be found in the sea in certain months.
                  
    Height:       1.3 m / 4 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    Shakes its flippers when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "As the largest of the penguin species, it can reach weights of
                  up to 40kg. Its beak is thin and slightly curved with a black
                  upper area and an orange lower area. There is a glossy yellow
                  area that starts around its ears and becomes gradually lighter
                  towards its chest."
    
                 "Making no nest, the female lays an egg and goes on a sixty-day
                  search for food. The male protects the egg up between its legs.
                  The skin in this abdominal area keeps the egg warm. Due to not
                  eating while the female is gone, he loses a huge amount of
                  weight. Should the egg hatch before she returns, a secretion
                  known as 'penguin milk' is fed to the chick from his gullet."

                 "It has a spindle-shaped body, short decorative feathers on its
                  head that give it a slightly squared appearance and a height of
                  75cm. Its body and back are black and it has a white underside."
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."

    Height:       75 cm / 2 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    Shakes its flippers when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "Their beaks look short due to being partially covered with black
                  feathers. Also, there are white feathers around the eyes. They
                  prefer krill to fish, though during infancy, a larger amount of
                  fish is consumed."
    
                 "When the chicks reach a certain age, and the parents go in
                  search of food, they are left alone. During this time, the
                  chicks gather together and form a 'creche' which is defended by
                  young adults and those who have failed to mate that season
                  making them difficult targets for attackers."

                 "Its body is spindle-shaped, with long tail feathers and a height
                  of 90cm. Its body and back are black, but the areas above its eyes
                  and underside are white. Its wings are basically the same, but the
                  backs have a white edge and the tips of the undersides are black."
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."

    Height:       90 cm / 3 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    Shakes its flippers when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "The white areas over their eyes connect at the top of their
                  heads. they gather small stones to make round nests which are
                  not at ground level, but instead are to be found slightly higher
                  up in order to better protect their chicks from thawing snow and
                  ice." 
    
                 "If an attacker approaches while they are incubating their eggs,
                  they stretch their necks up, point their beaks towards the enemy
                  and ward it off by making loud sounds. They also turn to face
                  the enemy and run towards them to attack. The scientific name
                  'Papua' seems to suggest its origin was Papua New Guinea, but
                  must represent a mistake as there's absolutely no way this
                  species could exist there."

                  The majority of its body is black and white, but the pattern is
                  more intricate than that of other penguins. Its skin is visible
                  around its eyes, giving them a pink outline."
    
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."
    
                  Can also be found in the sea in certain months.
                  
    Height:       70 cm / 2 ft
    
    Forms:        young, adult 
    
    Behaviour:    Shakes its flippers when prodded.
    
    Other info:  "They usually lay two eggs, the first of which is slightly larger.
                  Much smaller eggs are laid at the same time as normal ones, but
                  these are unfertilised and will not hatch."
    
                 "There is a period known as the 'molting period' in which they
                  shed their plumage. During this time, it is very easy for their
                  body temperatures to drop making retrieving food impossible. They
                  take refuge on the shore and, to avoid dying of starvation, eat
                  large amounts before this period starts. It takes around eighteen
                  days to re-grow their plumage, and the average bird loses 150g a
                  day."

    Height:       40 cm / 16 in
    
    Forms:        young, adult

    Other info:  "The smallest among all species of penguin, weighing at most a
                  little over 1kg. They can make both short and long sounds, which
                  they use for communication with friends, identification of others
                  and declaring their territory among other things."
    
                 "Penguins tend to remain with the same mate for many years. In
                  this species, unions have lasted up to eleven years. While most
                  penguins walk with upright postures, this species is said to be
                  primitive as it leans forward when walking."

    Description:  Long-beaked black/brown bird. 
    
                 "It has short wings, a sharp pointed tail and a height of 70cm.
                  Its beak is sharp and jagged. Its head and back are black and it
                  has a white underside."
     
    Location:    "Sometimes appears on the decks of boats."
    
                  Can also be found in the sea in certain months chasing shoals of

    Height:       70 cm / 2 ft
    
    Forms:        adult only 
    
    Behaviour:    Can also be seen diving after shoaling fish
    
    Other info:  "It has a wingspan of about 1.4m. Its beak is light yellow and
                  the joint area is blue on males and light yellow on females. To
                  prevent attack from predators, this bird mates and builds its
                  nests high on the sides of cliffs."
    
                 "They fly a little above the surface of the water when searching
                  for food. When they spot a possible target, they dive head first
                  into the water and resurface with the food in their mouths.
                  Divers have witnessed them dive as deep as 30m."

    Description:  Large white bird with black-and-white wings. 
    
                 "It has a large beak with a curved tip, long thin wings and a
                  height of 95cm. Its body is mostly white, with yellow going from
                  its head to its neck, a black-edged white underside and a mixture
                  of black and white on its wings."

    Forms:        adult only 
    
    Behaviour:    Can also be seen diving after shoaling fish
    
    Other info:  "It has a wing span of about 2.5m. The light red colour of its
                  beak is its blood due to it being semi-transparent. Chicks are
                  brown tinged with black all over, but become white as they
                  mature. They are monogamous birds and mate with the same partner
                  each year."
    
                 "Their wings are long and difficult to flap meaning that, in order
                  to take off, they must have a running start. During flight, they
                  use a method known as a 'sailing glide' method which means that
                  they use the air currents to glide leisurely in the air instead
                  of having to constantly flap their wings."

                 "When mating season arrives, their beaks turn a vivid pink and
                  their throat pouches become red. They attract prospective mates
                  by shaking their newly coloured throat pouches. After a

    Behaviour:    Can also be seen diving after shoaling fish
    
    Other info:  "They have a wing span of about 1.5m. Their eyes are blue-green
                  and there is yellow around their beak joint. When the mating
                  season comes, their heads and their leg joints become white. They
                  build their nests high on cliffs making it difficult for
                  predators to attack and they dive to catch fish, which they
                  swallow whole."
    
                 "Their feathers have a low fat content making it hard to keep off
                  water, so it is very easy for them to get soaked. The result is
                  that when the birds resurface after a dive, they cannot
                  immediately take off and have to wait for their feathers to dry
                  first. This occurs during the rain as well, and means the birds
                  must descend."

                  body becomes a pink colour. They usually live to be around thirty
                  years old, but when bred in captivity they can live in excess of

                 "Flocks usually comprise of tens of birds, but can be as large as
                  tens of thousands. They hunt for food together using a method
                  that involves using their wings to strike the water in formation,
                  which pushes the fish towards the shore. Then they can scoop the
                  fish into their large beaks. The water that gets taken into their
                  mouths is expelled through their throats, leaving only the fish
                  to be swallowed."

    Other info:  "The external appearance of this creature is that of a blue whale,

                  to any deformity, but is naturally coloured. Despite its
                  colossal size, the habits of this creature remain unknown due to

    Shiny items
    -----------
              
                  These give off a white glow that can be seen from a distance.
                  They are always found in the same location (though some need to
                  be unlocked first).
    
                  Precise locations are given here for all shiny treasures.
    
    
    Non-shiny items
    ---------------
    
                  These are found under normal fishy glows, they cannot be seen
                  from a distance. Each item always appears on the same map, but
                  can be found anywhere on that map and may be found multiple times
                  in multiple places. They do not all seem to exist to be found
                  from the start of the game, but are somehow unlocked during the
                  game and perhaps not always in the same sequence.

    [12.A] Treasure-hunting Guide
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    What triggers non-shiny treasures?
    ----------------------------------
    
       We do not know what triggers these treasures. There have been several
       suggestions:
         - purely random
         - time-related: to days, seasons, phases of the moon or game-time
         - mission-related: to photography or guided dives
    
       None of these on its own stands up to much experimentation, so at present
       this is very much an open question.
    
    
    Beware of superstitions
    -----------------------               
    
       I should first explain that treasure-hunting techniques are very susceptible
       to 'suspicious pigeon syndrome' - the tendency to ascribe random occurrences
       to your own acts ... 
    
       (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B.F._Skinner#Superstition_in_the_pigeon)
    
       ... it is very easy to think you have found a pattern when no such pattern
       exists. Theories often fold completely when subjected to objective testing
       by somebody else.
    
    
    How to find non-shiny treasures (co-authored with Alwaysbe8)
    ------------------------------- 
    
       That said, there is one approach that is worth describing here because it
       was used successfully by margaret_e (the first person known to me to
       complete the game) and successfully followed by alwaysbe8 (the first North
       American known to me to complete the game) and waltmck (third overall).
    
       As, at the time I am writing this, *only* these three gamefaqs posters
       have convincingly claimed completion, the technique has pretty strong
       credentials. It seems to be working for me too.
    
       1) pick an area to search
    
          Ki Tsuo Promenade/The Dancing Stage of Kua Tua is a popular spot on the
          main map as it is enclosed and relatively easy to search
    
          The first cave in the Caves, the Graveyard/Whalebone Chasm, the area
          below the Pirate Ship and the sand around the Ruins are good too.
    
          Note: this is largely to do with convenience of searching, the treasures
          *can* be found in other places - any other places.
    
       2) keep the glow fish happy
    
          When you find fish under a glow, pet them, feed them, do whatever it
          takes to make them sparkle
    
       3) if you find a shell, keep looking
    
          Feed the fish and carry on with your search
    
          If you are in Ki Tsuo Promenade/The Dancing Stage of Kua Tua it is worth
          checking out the Secret Lake as well.   
    
       4) if you find a treasure you already have, STOP
    
          Feed the fish first, and surface immediately, then dive straight back
          down again and search
    
       5) if you search and find nothing, surface and start again
    
       6) if that doesn't seem to be working, save your game, quit and then start
          again.
    
       This seems to encourage treasures to cycle round, and to show up earlier in
       the dive. It does not *guarantee* you will find a new one but it does seem
       to significantly improve your chances.

                  (ES) Medalla de oro con delfin
                  (IT) Medaglia del delfino
    
    Description: "A commemorative gold medal with a dolphin and bay leaf motif,
                  reading '16th Drift Race Champion'"
    
            (NA) "A medal engraved with a dolphin and a laurel leaf. It bears
                  the inscription '16th Annual Drift Dive Champion.'"
    
    Location:    Main map/Blue Hall(Blue Holes) (L2(8,2),18m,59ft) 
                   on top of a table coral
    
    Unlocks:     Plot - attracts the dolphin which is essential to the story. 
    
                 Also a hint about the tidal flows: as the Wild Channel is the best
                 spot for drift diving, it seems likely that the medal was dropped
                 there and taken by the tide into the Blue Hall (Blue Holes).

    Description: "A bronze mirror depicting an image of the legendary white whale.
                  Not unlike 3rd century Japanese mirrors."
    
            (NA) "An old bronze mirror featuring a legendary whale god of the
                  region." 
    
    Locations:    Main map in four Bronze Mirror Fragments (Mirror fragments):
    
                  - south of Blue Hall/Blue Holes (L3(5,5),10m,32ft) 
                      on coral rock in centre
    
                  - E Maurai Hollow/Malalapa Hollow (D2(9,9),11m,36ft)
                      on sand in inlet
    
                  - Coral Forest (K1(4,0),15m,49ft) 
                      inside Rowa's Jewel Box/The Gem Chest of Loa
    
                  - southwest of Green Garden (E3(0,7),17m,55ft) 
                      on rock near pink coral
    
    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found all the Bronze Mirror Fragments.  Let's
                  put this thing back together and take a look.
    
                  It seems to be east Asian, and probably for religious services.
                  Judging by the shape, it could be of Japanese origin. The
                  engraved whale likeness resembles that of the legends. It could
                  even be a 3rd century ancient bronze mirror.  
    
                  But why would a Japanese artifact like this be here?
    
                  There are legends in Manaurai about sacred whales.  Creatures
                  revered by the locals since days of old.  Blue whales, the
                  largest creatures on earth appear in these legends from time to
                  time.  
    
                  Where were they seen?  Well, with a body as large as that,
                  certainly not in the shallow sea that surrounds the islands. 
                  Maybe you should look for an area facing the open sea."
    
           (NA)  "You found all the pieces of the mirror. I’ll start working on it
                  right away.
    
                  This is an ancient mirror used for festivals in eastern Asia. By
                  the look of it, it appears to be of Japanese origin. The etching
                  is a representation of a big whale deity. I think we’ve got
                  ourselves a whale-god mirror.
    
                  Weird... How did a Japanese mirror wind up all the way out here?
    
                  You know, there’s a Pelago legend about a whale god. The story
                  has been around in one form or another forever. We do see blue
                  whales around here from time to time. I guess that’s where the
                  legend comes from.
    
                  What, you want to find a blue whale? Hmmmmm... Lemme think...
                  They’re too big to approach the islands and reefs... So I’d say
                  the edge of the open ocean is your best bet."
    
    Unlocks:      Creature hint, to look for blue whales near the open ocean.

                  (ES) Brújuia de pirate
                  (IT) Bussola del Pirati
    
    Description: "A message in ancient lettering says: We're born of the sea, to it
                  we return. <<E-5,H-6,E-9>>"
    
            (NA) "A compass with a message. It says 'On seas we live. On seas
                  we die.' -- E-5, H-6, E-9 --"
    
    Locations:    Main map in four Compass Pieces:
    
                  - Secret Lake (J9(8,7),11m,36ft) 
                      on the sand near central rock
    
                  - Lagoon (M1(6,4),5m,16ft) 
                      on sand between corals
    
                  - Taganuah Bay/Tanganua Bay (H1(2,2),1m,3ft)
                      on the beach
    
                  - West of Marige Atoll/Mo'ia Atoll (B8(3,7),4m,13ft)
                      on rock just where it falls away to the sea 
    
    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found all the Compass Pieces.  Let's put this
                  thing back together and take a look.
    
                  It seems to be an old nautical compass, with Chinese-influenced
                  designs on it.  I'd say it's an 18th century European piece. 
                  What's this?  There's a latin inscription and a map. I'll have a
                  read through.  
                        
                  - We're born of the sea -
                  - To it we return - 
                  - Years filled by the tide -
                  - Of lands which we yearn -
                  - To Whale Island we head - 
                  - To home we return - 
                  - Triumphant are we -
                  - 3 stars, see them burn - 
                  
                  It doesn't make much sense. But the map, it looks like part of
                  Manaurai, and the 3 stars marked on it correspond with <<E-5>>
                  <<H-6>> <<E-9>> on our map!  What could they possibly represent?"
    
           (NA)  "Hey, nice! You found all the compass parts! I’ll start fixing it
                  right away.
    
                  This is an old navigational compass. The design has a lot of
                  Chinese influences, but I’m pretty sure this is 18th-century
                  European. Hey! I think there’s a map on this! And some Latin,
                  too. Lemme see... Lemme think about it for a bit. Maybe I can
                  figure it out.
    
                  - On seas we live –
                  - On seas we die –
                  - The tide does swell –
                  - As years go by –
                  - The whale isle calls –
                  - And so we roam –
                  - Three stars we have –
                  - To guide us home –
    
                  ...Huh. I have no idea what that means. But look at this image
                  here... It looks like Manoa Lai. There are three star marks here.
                  Let’s see... On our map they would be at <E-5>, <H-6>, and <E-9>.
                  I wonder what these mean."

                  which is only unlocked by uncovering 60% of the map.

                  this thing back together and take a look.
    
                  It's a piece of traditional Paoul folk craft, that has been
                  carved out of mahogany.  It shows a myth that was told across
                  neighbouring islands. 
    
                  When it comes to myths and legends, Douglas knows it all. I

          (NA)   "Oh, cool! You found all the storyboard pieces! I’m a total craft
                  hound. I can put this together in no time.
    
                  Storyboards like this are traditional folk art of the Pelago
                  Commonwealth. It’s how old stories and myths are passed through
                  the generations. They’re usually carved out of hardwoods.
    
                  You know, Doug knows even more than I do about this stuff... I
                  bet he could tell us about the story on this piece. Next time we
                  talk, I’ll ask him about it."
    
    Unlocks:      Backstory/Mythology - by email from Douglas
    
                 "Catherine told me you found a storyboard.  It may be from a 
                  Paoul myth called 'The Judgement Fruit'.  It goes a bit like 
                  this...
    
                  Once, on a small island, a mysterious tree grew.  Its fruit was 
                  highly sought after so the people worked to protect it.  
    
                  One day, the king of a larger island invaded and killed all the
                  people. He brought back the fruit to his queen, who devoured it
                  greedily.
    
                  Suddenly, it began to rain heavily. It continued for over a year,
                  and the island sank into the ocean. It is said that the fruit was
                  cursed.
    
                  I guess it must have some kind of moral."
    
          (NA)   "Hey sea kids! Kat told me about the storyboard. It shows a Pelago
                  legend called Fruit of Judgment. Here it is:
    
                  Long ago there was a tiny island with a tree that bore sweet
                  fruit.
    
                  One day the island was invaded by a large island kingdom. The
                  empress of this kingdom was envious of the tree, so she killed
                  the islanders, stole the fruit, and ate it all.
    
                  But as soon as she did, the skies darkened and the rains began.
                  The rain continued for a whole year, and the entire kingdom sunk
                  under the sea. The people of the little island believe the stolen
                  fruit was cursed.
    
                  Creepy!"

                  you found an item like this in a limestone cave!  You may have 
                  stumbled on a very significant object.
    
                  I'd better let Mr Tollman see it, he's well known and has friends
                  in the right places, I'm sure he can put us in touch with someone
                  who can help."

                  major find!
    
                  I guess I’ll tell Thorman about it. He’s got connections, if you
                  know what I mean. He’ll be able to put us in contact with the
                  right people."
    
    Takahishi:   "My name is Takahashi, and I work for the National Museum of 
                  Ethnology in Japan.  Mr Tollman was kind enough to inform me that
                  fragments of an earthenware vessel with flame patterns had been 
                  found in Manaurai in an underwater cavern.
    
                  Flame-patterned vessels were produced mainly in Japan some 
                  4000-5000 years ago.  I am intrigued that such an artifact was
                  found in a cavern in the South Pacific.  This may be evidence of
                  a mass-migration of the people of the Pacific Rim.  If you find 
                  any other fragments, please allow me to assist in their 
                  analysis."
    
            (NA) "Hello. Nice to meet you. My name is Norisuke Takahashi, and I
                  work at the museum of ethnology in Japan. Mr. Thorman contacted
                  me about the pottery shard you found in the limestone cave.
    
                  The shard in question is of Japanese origin, and is between 4,000
                  and 5,000 years old. Of course, how it came to be in a South
                  Pacific cave is something of a mystery. Perhaps it’s a clue to
                  the migration patterns of early Pacific Rim islanders?
    
                  If you find other pieces like that, I would very much like to
                  know.
    
                  Thank you."
    
    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found all the Earthenware Pieces.  Let's put
                  this thing back together and take a look. 
    
                  I believe it's a piece from the Japanese Jomon period.  Often
                  referred to as 'flame-patterned', others call it 'water flow'
                  instead as it also resembles a surge of water.  Strange,
                  considering fire and water are opposites.  Don't you think the
                  description is a little ambiguous?   
    
                  Someone I know is particularly interested in this kind of find,
                  I'll get in touch right away.  They're bound to like this." 
    
            (NA) "Looks like you have all the patterned pottery shards. Give me a
                  bit and I’ll repair it.
    
                  I know this design. It was made in Japan during the Jomon period.
                  The pattern is really cool. It could be fire, but it could also
                  be water. ...That’s funny. Yeah, it looks almost like some kind
                  of flaming tidal swell. Fire and water, together again! Hee hee!
    
                  Hey, I know a guy who’s really into stuff like this. I’ll drop
                  him a line. He can probably tell us more."
    
    Takahishi:   "This is Takahashi from the National Museum of Ethnology in Japan.
                  I hear you have gathered more fragments of the flame-patterned
                  vessel.  Viewing the pictures of the fragments, I can tell this
                  is an important find.  This vessel closely resembles those made
                  in the south of the Chiba region of Japan.
    
                  Many of the remains in Chiba show evidence of South Pacific 
                  influence.  I believe that 10,000 years ago, Chiba and Manaurai
                  may have had some kind of interaction and I want to research this
                  further.  As a token of my appreciation, I include a small gift."
     
            (NA) "Good morning. this is Takahashi again. From the ethnology museum?
                  I heard that you collected more pottery pieces!
    
                  The new pottery is similar to that of the Japanese Chiba
                  prefecture. However, upon further review, we found subtle signs
                  of additional South Pacific cultural influences. This leads us to
                  believe that there may have been an exchange of communications
                  and cultures between Manoa Lai and Japan over 10,000 years ago.
                  If true, this is big news indeed!
    
                  Thank you very much for your assistance. I’ve attached a little

                  The statue is really, really old. See all these little swirls

                  Tattoos are a common practice in many South Pacific cultures. But
                  tattooed deities were usually from foreign cultures. In fact, in
                  Pelago, we sometimes call these deities 'outsiders.'

                  contact an archaeology professor I know right away."

                  ruins. It is written in two separate languages, but means the
                  same in both. Half is written in ancient Manaurai script. The
                  other half is in the carved symbols, or petroglyphs, of ancient
                  Paoul, which we can already comprehend.  Using these petroglyphs,
                  we can decipher the Manaurai script.  I'll make a report of the

                  The piece contains two identical sentences written in a different
                  language. The first is an ancient and unfamiliar Manoa Lai
                  tongue, but the second is an older Pelago language that we

                  million years ago as a result of the Cambrian Explosion.  Its 
                  appearance is like nothing from any other era, and was laughed

                  carnivorous sea creature living in an era of tremendous change.
                  It’s one of the most unique creatures in history. When it was

                  Phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, coral remains a respected form
                  of animal life.  When coral dies, it leaves behind hard skeletons
                  which become part of coral reefs, or break down into sand or, in
                  rarer cases, become precious stones like this.
    
                  I imagine something like this is very valuable!  ... *Gulp*...
                  I wonder how much you'd get if you sold it?  Just for the sake of

                  Heh. Looks pretty boring, huh? But coral is actually an animal
                  from phylum Cnidaria. When it dies, it leaves a hard frame
                  behind. Those pile up on reefs and break up into beach sand.
    
                  This is a kind of coral called jewel coral. I bet some people
                  would pay a whole lot of money for it. But that would be
                  disgusting. We should donate it to a museum.

    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found all the Golden Statue Pieces.  Let's put
                  this thing back together and take a look.
    
                  This appears to be a statue of Amitabha Tathagata, a Buddha
                  figure that's revered in Buddhism.  Actually, there are many
                  types of these in Buddhism. Bodhisattva, is the shape of
                  apprenticeship, and Myo-o is that of anger. Buddha, the highest
                  rank, indicates enlightenment. Amitabha Tathagata leads the dead
                  to the Buddhist's paradise, and is a very high-ranking Buddha
                  indeed!  So make sure you take good care of this piece, and never
                  know, it might just answer your prayers."

                  But other than that, I don’t know much about old artifacts like
                  this. Maybe there’s a museum that would be interested in it. I’ll
                  ask around. For now, let’s keep it somewhere safe.
    
                  You know, when I was a kid I had a statue like this. Well, kind
                  of like this. Actually, it was a little bigger, And fatter.
                  Actually, I don’t think it was like this one at all.
    
                  Sorry. I’m totally rambling. I’ll stop.

    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found all the Plate Fragments.  Let's put 
                  this thing back together and take a look.
    
                  This is a piece of world famous pottery from Jingdezhen, a city
                  in the Jiangxi region of China.  The production of this pottery
                  began hundreds of years ago and was prolific enough to be
                  exported across Europe, Islamic countries and all over the world,
                  meaning that prices and quality vary a lot.  
    
                  This item, however, looks like it could be a valuable piece.  A
                  group of antique specialists recently came to the main island, 
                  so this could be a good opportunity to have it valued.  I'll 
                  contact Mr Tollman to make the necessary arrangements."
    
            (NA) "You found all the Chinese porcelain shards? Let’s try putting
                  them together.
    
                  Wow! This is a Jingdezhen compass! Jingdezhen is a city in the
                  Jiangxi province of China. The city has been producing compasses
                  for hundreds of years. They were exported all over Europe and the
                  Middle East. It was a big industry, and they made thousands and
                  thousands of them, so the price and quality tends to jump around
                  a lot. But some of them are really valuable.
    
                  Hey, I think a group of antique experts are in Ka’ia right now. 
                  We should have this examined to see if it’s a real compass or
                  not! I’ll have Thorman look into it."
    
    Alfred:      "Email:  W.F. Heaton's Collection
    
                  The results of the experts' appraisal are in, and they are most
                  surprising!  Although the Jingdezhen Plate is not in good 
                  condition, it apparently has enormous historical value.  In the
                  16th century, the rich European collector, William Frederick 
                  Heaton, had this plate made for him by one of the most 
                  celebrated craftsmen of the Ming Period.  
    
                  Through various accidents of history, the plate passed through 
                  several nobles' hands and finally disappeared without trace.  
                  That is the plate you found.  You found something of real value.
                  Please accept this as a reward."
    
            (NA) "Re: Platter Appraisal
    
                  I have good news.
    
                  Although in poor condition, the Jingdezhen platter is a
                  historically significant find. Originally crafted by a skilled
                  Chinese potter, it was later acquired by a European aristocrat
                  named William Freud Hessler. His family passed it down for
                  generations until it was finally lost at sea during a fierce
                  storm.
    
                  This is a truly rare find, and I think the museum will be
                  thrilled to receive it. Please accept this as a token of the 
                  foundation’s thanks."

                  Hey, I heard that Catherine isn't her usual self...  I might 
                  have an idea of what the problem is.  I've known her since she 
                  was a kid living in Paoul and I'm pretty sure she's dwelling on 
                  something in her past.
    
                  It'd be best to ask her directly about her past.  But I doubt 
                  it'll be easy to get anything out of her.  You need some clue to
                  get her to open up and talk.  Have you ever seen her pray facing

                  Hey! Sorry that Kat has been acting so weird, but I guess I’m
                  not surprised. I’ve known her since living in Pelago. Some
                  heavy stuff went down in her past and I think it still bothers
                  her.
    
                  I’m not a shrink or anything, but maybe you should ask about her
                  past. Knowing Kat, though, she probably won’t tell you much. You
                  may need more info first.
    
                  Ever notice how she stares at the ocean? She’s actually thinking
                  about something called the Green Garden. Maybe that info will

    Catherine:   "It can't be!?  That belonged to my father! You picked it up off
                  the ocean floor, didn't you?  My father lost his life in the 
                  waters of Manaurai chasing a dream that he was never able to 
                  realise.  Since I can't keep anything hidden from you, let me 
                  tell you about my purpose. As I said before, I was born here in
                  Paoul.  
    
                  There's an ancient legend here, maybe you've heard of it? It's
                  about a huge white animal known as White Mother.  Said to be the
                  origin of all life, its form is a giant, white whale and has 
                  been sighted by many since the days of old. 20 years ago, she
                  revealed herself to my father, who had chosen not to believe the
                  stories surrounding the whale, concluding it was a UMA, or 
                  Unidentified Mysterious Animal.  
    
                  Bigger even than a blue whale, the planet's largest mammal, this
                  whale was the most significant new species ever and so he began 
                  to pursue it for scientific investigation.  But in doing so, he 
                  pushed us away from normal society as he went against all that 
                  the residents of Paoul held dear.  We were shunned by them and 
                  left to stand alone.  
    
                  Then one day, he just vanished in the Manaurai Sea during an 
                  underwater survey.  The purpose I talk about is to do what my 
                  father couldn't, to find the White Mother!  By doing so, I can
                  let go of my regrets and restore my father's reputation. That's
                  it, that's what I have to do.  Now if you don't mind, I'd like
                  some time alone.  Thank you for listening to me..."
    
            (NA) "Is that... Oh my gosh... Oh my gosh... That’s Dad’s.
    
                  He...he went into the ocean to chase his dreams and never came
                  back. ...Look, I can’t... I can’t keep holding things back from
                  you anymore.
    
                  I’ll tell you about my life mission. I told you how I was born
                  here in Pelago, right? Well, there’s a certain Pelago legend that
                  has existed for ages. It’s about a creature called the Ancient
                  Mother. The details can differ, but the stories are usually some
                  kind of creation myth. People have searched for the truth behind
                  the myth for ages, but...
    
                  Twenty years ago, my father saw the Ancient Mother. ‘Course, dad
                  was a realist. He didn’t think it was some kind of whale god. He
                  just thought it was a UMA — an unidentified mysterious animal.
                  He believed that it was a creature even bigger than the blue
                  whale. Which, of course, would make it the largest animal in the
                  world.
    
                  Dad started a scientific operation to track and find the
                  creature, but... But a lot of Pelagoans are superstitious about
                  the Ancient Mother. They were outraged that Dad would dare to
                  search for her. They hated us for it.
    
                  And then one day Dad just...vanished. He was taken by the Manoa
                  Lai Sea. My life mission is to finish his work! I’m going to find
                  the Ancient Mother. I’ll clear his name and make sure the world
                  knows what he accomplished!
    
                  So you can either help or...or...or not! ...And then I don’t know
                  what I’ll do. ...Sorry. That must all sound crazy. Thanks for
                  listening."

    Catherine:   "That looks like a pretty rare item you've found. I think it's
                  a shark-tooth necklace. The shark is a revered animal in many 
                  South Pacific countries, and it's the same here in Paoul too.  
                  Their ferocity and toughness is often admired, especially by 
                  soldiers.  
    
                  The most noted example is the God of Violence and Death who had
                  the form of Magu Tapah, a giant great white. From the size of 
                  that tooth, it must have been huge, possibly even something 
                  nearing the size of Magu Tapah. Perhaps it'll bring you luck if
                  you wear it?"
    
            (NA) "Oh, look! That’s a pretty rare find! It’s a shark tooth necklace!
    
                  Many cultures in the South Pacific regard sharks as mystical
                  creatures. And the Pelago Commonwealth is no different. Sharks
                  are strong, ferocious animals that seemingly fear nothing. Those
                  qualities were greatly admired by warriors.
    
                  Many ancient people assumed their deities took the form of
                  sharks. They were usually considered to be the gods of death and
                  violence. I think that tooth is from a great white shark.
    
                  Wow, you found something connected to Magu Tapa, huh? Perhaps you
                  could wear it as a good-luck charm or something.
    
    Unlocks:      the legendary Magu Tapah, the giant Great White Shark and god of

                  considered to be "cool"?

                  How are you?  I'm sure you are fully acclimatised to Manaurai by
                  now.  I am writing because I heard a strange rumour the other

                  mysterious glowing white dolphin by Paoul fishermen who got lost
                  in the area west of Rock Land.  
    
                  If you're interested, perhaps you could investigate.  This is the
                  area where the ruins were discovered.  Perhaps other secrets are

                  I heard a rumor yesterday that might interest you. It seems that
                  a local fisherman claims to have seen a shiny white dolphin to 
                  the west of Rock Bluff.

    Catherine:   "Looks like you've found an Old Bracelet. It appears to have some
                  kind of engraving on it. Let me see.  
    
                  The emblem is that of a seven-headed serpent, Which suggests it
                  was once owned by royalty.  
    
                  This reminds me of an old Paoul folk tale about a kingdom long 
                  ago that was threatened by a great flood and of a brave prince 
                  who could control dolphins using the power of a mysterious 
                  bracelet.  Anyway, he used it to avert the disaster and all was 
                  well.  The bracelet in the story was said to be very distinctive,
                  an item truly fit for a king and possessing unique powers.  
                  Could this really be the same item?  It might be a good idea to
                  wear it, for good luck."
    
            (NA) "Well, look at that. It’s an ancient bracelet.
    
                  Check out this engraving! It’s some kind of crest with three
                  dolphins. It reminds me of 'The Prince and the White Dolphin.'
                  What? You don’t know that story? Yeah, it’s an old Pelago myth.
    
                  Let’s see... So, long ago, a kingdom was nearly destroyed by a
                  flood. But the prince was a nice guy, so the gods gave him a
                  magic bracelet. The bracelet was magic, and it allowed him to
                  speak to the dolphins. And so then he and the dolphins all
                  decided to save the kingdom...or something...
    
                  Sorry. I’m a little hazy on the details.
    
                  Anyway, that bracelet had three dolphins on it, just like the one
                  you found. Maybe it’s real! What do you think? The museum
                  wouldn’t have much interest in it. You should wear it for luck."

                  It seems you are really throwing yourself into your work 
                  recently.  Remember to take care of your health - this is your
                  most important resource!  That reminds me of a ceremony people
                  in the Paoul Republic have taken part in since time immemorial.  
    
                  They pray to the storm god for good health and even for 
                  immortality before a rock shaped like a human face.  It's just a

                  Be sure to rest every now and again. Everyone needs to recharge.
    
                  Such things remind me of the time-honored Pelago ritual that is
                  said to grant health and vitality. Supposedly you stand before a
                  'crag shaped like a face' and offer thanks to the god of storms.

                  These items are known as 'Comma-shaped beads'. In Japan, they
                  were used as bodily accessories. They existed here in Paoul too,

                  Tso, Matah and Wengah, the Gods of storms, calm and war, who
                  decorated her body with them. Tso, Matah and Wengah were said to

                  There’s actually a legend about them. It goes like this...
    
                  Long ago, there was a goddess of storms and battles. And she had
                  many priestesses who served her. They all wore jewels like the

    ===============================================================================
    
    [15] SPECIES NOT IDENTIFIED IN THE GAME
    
    ===============================================================================
    
       Many species that can been seen in the game are not referenced in the Guide
       to Marine Life/Encyclopedia, and most of these are never named in the game.
       This applies most obviously to corals, sponges, anemones and plants, but
       also to one fish, one worm and one bivalve. 
    
       This section makes a brave, if foolhardy, attempt to identify them all. At
       least all those that can be zoomed-in on enough to make the attempt. Except
       where the species provide homes for specific identifiable creatures, the
       section has little relevance to gameplay. But as Arika have gone to a lot of
       trouble to get things right it should be of interest to keen players.
    
       I am not an expert ('novice' would be a better description), and species
       identification seems to be tough enough based on real specimens, let alone
       on digital reproductions in a game. Mistakes are likely.
    
       The descriptions are sometimes paraphrased from external sources, but the
       location and behaviour information relates more closely to the appearance in
       the game.
    
       Where there is particular doubt about the exact species depicted I have
       either stuck with the generic name, or favoured the species found in the
       south-west Pacific. Frankly, it is very rare to get an identification that
       close!
    
    Note: I have nowhere near identified all of them yet - and not even started on
          anemones and sea squirts, but this selection should give you a taster.

    [15.1] CREATURES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Bluestreak cleaner wrasse - Labroides dimidiatus
    ------------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  Tiny bluish fish
    
                  A narrow fish with a long, thin body and a length of 11cm. It has
                  a pale yellow body with a black stripe widening from the eye to
                  the caudal fin margin.
    
    Location:     Can be seen all year round in the Rock Land (Rock Bluff) area. 
    
    Length:       11 cm / 4 in
    
    Behaviour:    A group of these accompany the Kidako moray, cleaning it. 
    
    
    Giant clam - Tridacna gigas
    ---------------------------
    
    Description:  Huge knobbly clam
    
                  A huge bivalve mollusc with a width of 1.2m. It is sedentary in
                  habit and feeds by the photosynthesis of algae in its mantle.
    
    Location:     Can be seen all year round in relatively shallow areas where
                  there is coral. 
    
    Example:      Main map/Taganuah Bay(Tanganua Bay) (H2(6,9),4m,14ft)
    
    Length:       1.2 m / 4 ft
    
    Behaviour:    Sometimes houses small fish.
    
    
    Giant Tubeworm - Riftia pachyptila
    ----------------------------------
    
    Description:  A white worm with a bright red plume
    
                  A tubeworm that lives at great depths. It has no digestive tract
                  but feeds by chemosynthesis, where bacteria turn oxygen, hydrogen
                  sulfide, carbon dioxide, etc. into organic molecules. The bright
                  red color of the plume structures results from several
                  extraordinarily complex hemoglobins found in them.
    
    Location:     Can be seen in clusters around hydrothermal vents on the deep
                  ocean floor all year round. 
    
    Example:      Abyss/Hydrothermal Vents at H5 on the Abyss map
    
    Length:       2.4 m / 8 ft
    
    Behaviour:    Anchored to the sea bed in large groups surrounding vents.

    [15.2] PLANTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Kelp - Laminaria sp
    -------------------
    
    Description:  A plant-like alga with a tall stem and broad 'leaves'
    
                  Pacific kelp is a large species of brown algae. Kelps grow
                  throughout the cold temperate regions of the world. They are
                  known as kelp beds where there is no surface canopy and kelp
                  forests where they form a canopy. 
    
                  Like other algae species, kelps attach to the substrate using a
                  holdfast. The holdfast extends into a stem or trunk ending in
                  broad, flat blades. A gas-filled pneumatocyst is found beneath
                  the blade, which floats the kelp at the surface. They take up
                  nutritents generated by the constantly moving seawater. 
                 (marinebio.org)
    
    Location:     Can be seen mostly in brackish waters 
    
    Example:      Entrance to the Green Garden F1 on the main map
    
    Height:       30 m / 100 ft (shorter than this in the game)
    
    Behaviour:    Home to species of sea dragon.
    
    Note:         bit of a geographic anomaly here, the plant in the game looks to
                  me like Laminaria sp, but the Leafy sea dragon usually lives
                  among Australian brown kelps of Durvilleia, Ecklonia and
                  Macrocystis spp
    
    
    Eel Grass/Tape Grass - Vallisneria spiralis
    -------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  A grass-like plant with strap-like leaves in clusters  
    
                  A a submersed plant that spreads by runners and sometimes forms
                  tall underwater meadows. Leaves arise in clusters from their
                  roots. The leaves have rounded tips, and definite raised veins.
                  Single white female flowers grow to the water surface on very
                  long stalks. Tape grass fruit is a banana-like capsule having many
                  tiny seeds.
                  (Wikipedia)
    
                  Vallisnerias are dioecious, with separate male and female
                  flowering plants. These flowers appear on special stems that can
                  grow as much as 2 cm. (1/2 inch) per *hour*.
                  (wetwebmedia)
    
    Location      Can be seen mostly in brackish waters 
    
    Example:      Green Garden at (F1(4,4),9m,30ft)
    
    Height:       50 cm / 2 ft (apparent height in the game)
    
    
    Halimeda - Halimeda sp - possibly Halimeda tuna
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    Description: A green alga with a body of calcified green segments
    
                 A typical Halimeda alga is a flexible string of flattened leaf-like
                 structures often referred to as segments. Each segment is a deposit
                 of calcium carbonate covered by the algal protoplasm and connected
                 to its neighbors by a thin strand, giving the plant its
                 flexibility. Some species, such as H. copiosa, take on the form of
                 long necklaces, as if green disk-shaped charms had been fitted on a
                 thin chain. The most common species, H. tuna and H. discoidea, have
                 larger segments and grow in somewhat shorter chains. 
    
    Location:    Found where the water is rich in calcium, so near the entrance to
                 the limestone caves
    
    Example:     Mermaid's Grotto at (L7(0,1),14m,46ft)
    
    Height:      15 cm / 6 in (apparent height in the game)
    
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [15.3] SPONGES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Giant barrel sponge - Xestospongia testudinaria
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  Huge hollow purple thing 
    
                  A large barrel-shaped sponge with a hollow interior and a height
                  of about 2m. It has a reddish-purple exterior and a pale interior.
                  Often a home for small fish. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral.
    
    Example:      a group at Main map/West of the Atoll (C8(2,4),2m,7ft)
    
    Height:       2 m / 7 ft (apparent height in the game)
    
    Behaviour:    Can sometimes be seen spawning (giving off blue or yellow confetti
                  flakes which look like a small shoal of fish). Often a signal that
                  there is something to see inside.
    
    Notes:       'Divers are often tempted to climb inside which is, of course, not
                  a sensible thing to do.'

    [15.4] CORALS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Soft Coral/Carnation Coral - Dendronephthya sp
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  A bendy coral with grey stems and pink 'flowers' 
    
                  An order of corals which do not produce calcium carbonate
                  skeletons and so are neither reef-building corals nor do they lay
                  new foundations for future corals. Instead they contain minute,
                  spiney skeletal elements called sclerites. They cannot
                  photosynthesise and feed on phytoplankton in the water.
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral.
    
                  Mostly found in shaded or mostly shaded areas, under ledges,
                  overhangs, and in caves (www.reefs.org)
    
    Example:      A nice group can be found at
                  Mahla Baoh's Jaw (The Chin of Maala Pao) (D8(1,5),4m,13ft)
    
    Height:       2.5 m / 8 ft 
    
    Behaviour:    Can conceal rare species
    
    Note:         There are other similar corals, like Nephthia spp - it might be
                  one of those
    
    
    Red Coral - Corallium japonicum
    -------------------------------
    
    Description:  A branching red coral
    
                  With a history predating the ancient glories of Rome, precious red
                  coral has been revered since early civilizations for its color,
                  luster and texture. Found in ocean depths of approximately 500 to
                  1,000 feet, red coral grows at a very slow rate-only about 1/4
                  inch per year - making it a highly treasured gemstone.
                 (www.jsbeads.com)

    Staghorn Coral - Acropora virgata
    ---------------------------------
    
    Description:  A bushy, branching coral
    
                  A branching coral with cylindrical branches ranging from a few
                  centimeters to over two meters in length and height. Can be seen
                  in green and purple varieties
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral
    
                  Mainly in the shallower areas
    
    Examples:     south of Blue Hall/Blue Holes at (M3(2,8),12m,39ft)
    
    Height:       60 cm / 2 ft (apparent height in the game)
    
    Behaviour:    the favourite home of the Mandarinfish and several gobies
    
    Note:         the only coral specifically identified in the game (in some of
                  the creature information) 
    
    
    Closed Brain Coral - Oulophyllia sp
    -----------------------------------
    
    Description:  A large yellow/green ball with widely-spaced maze-like patterns
    
                  Looks very similar to other brain/boulder corals from a distance,
                  but when zoomed-in you can see the patterns on the surface, with
                  ridges of corallites separated by ditches of about the same width.
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral
    
    Examples:     south of Blue Hall/Blue Holes at (M3(2,3),12m,39ft)
    
    Diameter:     1.5 m / 5 ft (apparent diameter in the game)

    Brain Coral - Diploria labyrinthiformus
    ---------------------------------------
    
    Description:  A large yellow/green ball with narrowly-spaced maze-like patterns
    
                  Looks very similar to other brain/boulder corals from a distance,
                  but when zoomed-in you can see the patterns on the surface, with
                  very closely-packed labyrinths of corallite ridges.
    
    Location:     (?) Can't remember where I saw it
    
    Examples:     (?) No idea
    
    Diameter:     1.5 m / 5 ft (apparent diameter in the game) (?)
    
    Behaviour:    sometimes inhabited by blennies
    
    Note:         or possibly Platygyra, or Leptonia/Leptoria
    
    
    Table coral - Acropora efflorescens
    -----------------------------------
    
    Description:  A green, flat, round coral. From above it has lots of tiny, 
                  closely-packed 'fingers' forming the table surface. From below
                  it has a wide 'trunk' spreading outwards to the table above. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral
    
    Examples:     Coral Forest, on the tall formations near the centre.
                  (L2(3,3),6m,20ft) 
    
    Diameter:     2m/6ft 
    
    Behaviour:    Many fish are found near this coral. Some, like the Moorish
                  idol and the Samurai squirrelfish, like to hide in or under it.
    
    Note:         Or could be A. clethrata? 
    
    
    Sea fan - Melithaea sp
    ----------------------
    
    Description:  A flat intricately growing fan made of may separate branches and
                  branchlets. Usually red or orange-coloured. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral, often
                  growing from vertical coral walls
    
    Examples:     At Mermaids Grotto/Mermaid Tunnel (L7(5,3),8m,26ft)
    
    Length:       1.2m/4ft
    
    Behaviour:    A favourite home of the Sakuradai/Cherry grouper
    
    Note:         Or possibly Annella sp
    
    
    Hedgehog Coral/Lettuce Coral - Echinopora lamellosa
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  Looks exactly like a green open lettuce or cabbage, and not at
                  all like a hedgehog.
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral, most
                  usually on shallow reefs
    
    Examples:     You can easily find one spawning in the Lagoon
    
    Length:       3 ft 
    
    Behaviour:    Small demoiselles seem to like it.
    
    Note:         Or possibly Montipuna caprocornus
    
    
    'Baby table coral' - Mycodium Elephantotus
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Description:  Very similar in general appearance to the ordinary table coral,
                  except that this clings close to coral rocks in groups. In
                  close-up you can see that the surface is smoother with fewer,
                  more widely-spaced 'fingers'. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral, most
                  usually on shallow reefs
    
    Examples:     A good collection at (L2(9,0),4.5m,15ft)
    
    Diameter:     2 ft 
    
    Note:         Or possibly Porites Lichen?
    
    
    Birds Nest Coral - Seriatopora sp
    ---------------------------------
    
    Description:  A small, usually pale branching coral. In close-up you can see
                  that the tip of each 'branch' is made up of two stubby divergent
                  fingers. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral, most
                  usually on shallow reefs
    
    Examples:     A good collection at (L2(5,3),4.7m,16ft)
    
    Diameter:     2 ft 
    
    Note:         Or possibly Acropora palifera?
    
    
    Candelabrum Coral - Rumphella sp 
    --------------------------------
    
    Description:  An upright branching coral looking very like an extravagant
                  Jewish menorah. Unfortunately for us, it cannot be zoomed in on
                  in the game, so we only have the shape to go on. 
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral, most
                  usually on shallow reefs
    
    Examples:     Near the entrance of the Lagoon at (M1(1,2),3.6m,11ft)
    
    Height:       6 ft 
    
    Notes:        Very dodgy identification here. Went by a photo of Plexaura sp,
                  but that doesn't grow in the Pacific
    
    
    Sea whip - Junceela sp
    -----------------------
    
    Description:  A single spindly, bowed thread from a distance. Close up you 
                  you can see the polyps clearly.
    
    Location:     Can be seen in all areas of Manaurai where there is coral
    
    Examples:     (M3(2,3),12m,40ft)
    
    Height:       2 m / 6 ft 
    
    Behaviour:    Often a home for seahorses
    
    
    Purple Sea Whip - Menella sp
    ----------------------------
    
    Description:  A tall, slender elegant coral, sparsely branched. Unfortunately
                  for us, it cannot be zoomed in on in the game, so we only have
                  the shape to go on.
    
    Location:     There is one near the entrance to the Caves
    
    Examples:     (L7(0,2),3.7m,12ft)
    
    Height:       2 m / 6 ft 
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    [16] ONLINE PLAY
    
    ===============================================================================
    
       Online play lets you dive with another player. Either you visit their boat
       or they come to yours. You will need a broadband connection to your Wii.
    
       What you do when you are there is up to you, you might:
    
       - jointly search areas
       - have a guided tour
       - look for treasures
       - play games (try hide'n'seek with the compass turned off)
       - use the underwater pen to make obstacle courses for racing
       - try synchronised swimming
       
       It is also useful for getting a sneak preview of seasons you haven't
       reached yet.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [16.1] GETTING STARTED
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
       The Gate on the foredeck of the Gabbiano is where you go for everything
       online. 
    
    
    Gate - Use gate
    ---------------
    
    Description: "Visit friends and welcome them on board here. Use the options in
                  the various menus to get everything prepared."
    
                  Used for online multiplayer through Nintendo Wi-Fi.
    
    Controls:     Gives the following options:
                  - Open Gate
                  - Go diving
                  - Confirm Friend Code
                  - Friend roster
    
    
    Open Gate 
    ---------
    
    Description: "Allow friends to come here"
    
                  Connects you to Nintendo Wi-fi, and allows other people to visit
                  your boat. But only if they have registered your Friend Code and
                  you have registered theirs.  
    
                  Your game progress is saved before the connection is made.
    
    
    Go Diving    (option available if the gate is closed)
    ---------
    
    Description: "Go and dive at a friend's place"
    
                  Brings up a list of your registered friends. Those who are online
                  are highlighted in white, others are greyed-out.
    
                  Click on the one you want to visit and you will travel to their
                  boat on a jet-ski.
    
               *  You can take a dolphin partner with you.   
    
    
    Part Ways    (option available if the gate is open)
    ---------
    
                  Finish the online session
    
    
    Confirm Friend Code
    -------------------
    
                  This is where you find out what your friend code is. So it is
                  (very nearly) the first thing you need to do.
    
                  Only works when you have connected to Nintendo Wi-Fi for the
                  first time with this character. So the first time, you need to
                  open the gate first. Now go in here and you will see your friend
                  code.
    
                  There is a different friend code for each save file.
    
    
    Friend Roster
    -------------
    
                  This is where you register other people's Friend Codes so you can
                  go diving with them.
    
                  Click on "New Entry" to enter a new friend code
                  - enter the code your friend has given you
                  - enter a name. It does not have to be anything particular, just
                    so long as you remember who is who. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [16.2] SPECIAL CONTROLS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       Most of the controls for online play are the same as in the single-player
       game. There is an extra control for communicating during a dive.
    
    
    Map 
    ---
    
       Each diver sees their own map (as it is on their own file)
    
       The map shows an extra yellow arrow besides the usual red arrow. 
    
       - The red arrow is you
       - the yellow arrow is the other diver
    
    
    Compass
    -------
    
       The compass has an extra grey indicator on it, showing the horizontal
       direction of the other diver from you.
    
    
    COMMUNICATE
    -----------
    
       You can communicate with the other player using the equivalent of
       standard diving signals.   
    
       Press UP on the D-Pad to start, then:
    
       Up - Greetings
       --------------
    
          Down  - "Hello"
          Right - "This is fun!"
          Up    - "Thanks"
          Left  - "Bye"
    
       Left - Instructions 1
       ---------------------
       
          Down  - "Follow me"
          Right - "Where?"
          Up    - "After you"
          Left  - "This way"
    
       Right - Instructions 2
       ----------------------
    
          Down  - "Let's go back"
          Right - "Shall we dive?"
          Up    - "Look!"
          Left  - "Are you ready?"
    
       Down - Reply
       ------------
    
          Down  - "OK"
          Right - "What?"
          Up    - "Wait!"
          Left  - "No ..."
    
    
       Press (B) to exit this menu
    
    
    Underwater pen
    --------------
    
       The underwater pen effectively simulates the traditional diver's slate.
       Use it to write messages to the other player or, given the shortage of ink,
       to draw arrows.
    
     * The other diver cannot see what you are writing until you press "OK". So
       don't forget to do that. 
    
    
    Other controls
    --------------
    
       ... are the same as in the single-player game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [16.3] ETIQUETTE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      It may seem odd to have a section on etiquette in a game FAQ, but with the 
      limited communication available it is worth mentioning a few things.
    
    
    Before starting
    ---------------
    
      Check that both players are on the same continent. It is very frustrating to
      try to dive but be told the friend code is invalid because of region locking.
    
      Agree who is hosting and who is visiting, and at what time and in which time
      zone.
    
      Agree roughly where you are going to dive, or what you are going to see or
      do. Or at least who will be leading. It is very difficult to sort this out 
      at the time.
    
    
    Parting company
    ---------------
    
      It is best to agree how long you will be diving for, so that parting does not
      come as a surprise.
    
      If you want to end the session, it is politest to signal
         "Let's go back",
         "Thanks", and
         "Bye"
      before going to the gate and selecting "Part Ways".
    
      Alternative methods of ending the session, such as turning your Wii off, are
      frowned upon in polite company.
    
    
    During the dive
    ---------------
    
      It's your game, do what you want, but:
    
      Do keep in touch with the other player.
    
      If you are writing a message, signal "Look" to attract attention and give
      the other diver time to get to you.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [16.4] WHAT YOU CAN SEE AND DO
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Regions locked
    --------------
    
       Online play is region-locked. North Americans can only play with other North
       Americans and Europeans/Australians with each other.
    
       - If you try to dive with someone from another region you will get a message
         that the friend code is not valid
    
    
    Areas accessible
    ----------------
    
       Aquarium: not available, it is not shown on the map
    
       Caves:    can be entered only if the host has learnt cave diving
    
       Abyss:    can be entered only if the host has the deep diving mix
    
       Ruins:    can be entered only if the host has entered them before
       
       Ocean's Graveyard/Ship's Rest: available only if the host has it unlocked
    
    
    Night diving
    ------------
    
       You can dive at night even if you do not have night diving equipment
    
    
    On the boat
    -----------
    
       Cabin:      the visitor cannot enter the host's cabin.
    
                   the host can't move the boat if the visitor is 'busy'. This
                   includes if the visitor is sitting on the deckchair!  
    
       Catherine:  isn't on the deck. It looks like you have sent her to swab
                   the bilges or something
    
       Deckchair:  either player can use the deckchair, but not both at once.
    
       Gate:       the visitor can use the gate only to "Part Ways"
    
       Item box/footlocker: the visitor cannot open this
    
       Noticeboard: the visitor can read the noticeboard
    
       Ramp:       either player can use the ramp, but not both at the same time,
                   the other can watch the training from on deck
    
       Stereo:     the visitor cannot use the stereo
    
    
    Creatures
    ---------
    
       Creatures are visible to the visitor if they are available on the host's
       file. So the visitor will be able to see unlockable creatures, but only if
       the host has already unlocked them (this goes for whales, dolphins, and the
       White Mother (Ancient Mother)).
    
       EXCEPT that 
    
          if the host has, and the visitor has not, unlocked Magu Tapah,
          he will be visible to the host but not to the visitor.
    
       New creatures cannot be unlocked during an online dive so, for example, if
       the host has not unlocked the Right Whale you can dive at the Wild Channel
       without seeing it at all.
    
       You cannot ride on the other diver's partner.
    
    
    Creature Information   
    --------------------
    
       When you focus on the creature you will see the information that the host
       has on it - this may be more or less than you know about it.
    
       If you interact with a creature you can obtain more information, but this
       is not saved when the diving session ends.   
    
       Click on the other diver's partner and you will see its partner details,
       unless the other player has not unlocked any partner details, when you will
       see the species details.
     
    
    Camera
    ------
    
       Any photographs you take are stored in your camera, and you can save them
       to your photo album after the dive is finished.
    
    
    The other diver
    ---------------
    
       Online is the only time you can see what the camera and the underwater
       whistle look like (if the other diver is using them).
    
       Look carefully when communicating and you will see the standard diving
       signals being used.
    
    
    Treasures
    ---------
    
       The visitor can collect treasures from the hosts file, and both divers can
       collect the same treasure.
    
       New static treasures are visible to, and can be collected by, the visitor
       even if they have already been collected by (and so are invisible to) the
       host.
    
       Any treasures you collect online are kept when the session ends.
    
       If a collected treasure triggers some comment from Catherine or some action,
       this will happen on your own file after the online session ends.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [16.5] AFTER THE DIVE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       When the online session is over, you will be back on your own file.
    
    
    Date and Time
    -------------
    
       The date and time are the same as when the dive started. An online session
       takes up no in-game time.
    
    
    Location
    --------
    
       Your boat is back where it was when you started the online dive.
    
    
    Map
    ---
    
       Your map is the same as it was when the dive started. No new areas are
       uncovered.
    
    
    Creature information
    --------------------
    
       You have no new creature information.
    
    
    Treasures

    [17] MYTHOLOGY
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    The in-game mythology, like all myths, is tantalisingly loose. This section is
    a mock-serious analysis of the available information and is necessarily
    somewhat speculative. Indeed, the conclusion is rampantly so.
    
    Note that as the mythology is not essential to the game play the details may
    vary between different translations of the game. This section is based only on
    the EU (English) translation. Feel free to make your own interpretations.
    
    This section was written before I completed the game, so if it contains any
    spoilers about any ending I can only goggle in disbelief.   
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [17.1] DEITIES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    White Mother/Ancient Mother
    ---------------------------
    
    The senior goddess.
    
                 "The ancient legends passed down generations say that this white
                  whale is the protector of the seas around Manaurai. All residents,
                  from children to adults know of these legends and regard this
                  whale as an object of faith." 
                 (White Mother creature information)
    
                 "According to the Paoul myth, he was the youngest of six sons of
                  the goddess 'White Mother'" 
                 (Magu Tapah creature information)
    
    Magu Tapah
    ----------
    
    God of violence and death. Eldest of the six sons of the White Mother.
    
                 "Its name is that of the god of violence and death that features in
                  myths told around the islands of Paoul." 
                 (Magu Tapah creature information)
    
                 "... the God of Violence and Death who had the form of Magu Tapah,
                  a giant great white."
                 (Catherine, after you find the Shark-tooth necklace)  
    
    
    Tso, Matah, Wengah, Tsi Matah Wenga
    -----------------------------------
    
    Tso             - god of storms 
    Matah           - god of calm 
    Wengah          - god of war 
    Tsi Matah Wenga - an unruly god 
    
                 "... according to legend, they belonged to a medium who served Tso,
                  Matah and Wengah, the Gods of storms, calm and war, who decorated
                  her body with them.  Tso, Matah and Wengah were said to be the
                  ruler of orcas ..." 
                 (Catherine, after you find the Life Beads) 
    
                 "Tsi Matah Wengah, an unruly god, was entrusted with ensuring that
                  the violent god of death didn't escape."
                 (Magu Tapah creature information)
    
    It is not clear whether Tso/Tsi, Matah and Wengah/Wenga are one god, or three,
    or maybe four with a confusing similarity of names. However, one would perhaps
    expect a god of storms, calm and war to be a little unruly.
    
    This does, though, explain why the Orca and Magu Tapah are in the Ocean's
    Graveyard/Ship's Rest.
    
     
    Beluga
    ------ 
    
                 "According to the Manaurai legends, a god in the form of a white
                  dolphin came forth and gave protection to an ancient royal family.
                  White dolphins often appear in the legends that are told in this
                  region."
                 (Beluga partner information)
    
    
    Bottlenose Dolphin
    ------------------ 
    
                 "in ancient times for the inhabitants of the neighbouring islands
                  of the Paoul Republic, the bottlenose dolphin was once seen as an
                  object of faith"
                 (Bottlenose dolphin partner information)
    
    
    Other possibilities
    -------------------
    
    False killer whale - "tirelessly protects the mermaid's treasure" 
                  (False killer whale partner information)
    
    Orca          "According to Paoul legend ... a great human king and the killer
                   whale king made a pact."
                  (Orca partner information)
    
    Other dolphins seem not to occur in the legends.
    
    
    Conclusions
    -----------
    
    It seems clear that the White Mother (Ancient Mother) is some sort of great
    goddess, and that both Magu Tapah and Tsi Mata Wengah are either two, four or
    five of her six sons.
    
    There is some confusion between gods and kings, and it may be that the ancient
    kings have been gradually deified. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [17.2] FLOOD LEGENDS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Storyboard tells the myth of the judgment fruit. According to Douglas:
    
                 "Once, on a small island, a mysterious tree grew.  Its fruit was 
                  highly sought after so the people worked to protect it.  One day,
                  the king of a larger island invaded and killed all the people.  
                  He brought back the fruit to his queen, who devoured it greedily.
                  Suddenly, it began to rain heavily.  It continued for over a 
                  year, and the island sank into the ocean. It is said that the 
                  fruit was cursed..."
                 (email from Douglas after finding the Storyboard)
    
    When we find the Old Bracelet (Ancient Bracelet) Catherine explains:   
    
                 "an old Paoul folk tale about a kingdom long ago that was 
                  threatened by a great flood and of a brave prince who could
                  control dolphins using the power of a mysterious bracelet.  He
                  used it to avert the disaster and all was well."
    
    When we find the Caves, Douglas tells the legend:
    
                 "Long ago in Manaurai there was a castle which sank into the sea
                  after an earthquake. The queen escaped via a white tunnel, but
                  it filled with water and she became a mermaid..."
                 (email from Douglas after finding the Caves)
    
    So, there is large island that sank into the ocean (Storyboard), a flood
    somewhere whose impact was averted (Bracelet), and an earthquake in Manaurai
    (Caves).
    
    These may be the same or different events.
    
    
    Mysteries of ancient writing
    ----------------------------
    
    On finding the Sphere of Manaurai (Iron Pearl of Manoa Lai), Catherine tells us:
    
                "The people of ancient Paoul didn't possess ... writing"
    
    
    On finding the Nephrite Inscription (Inscribed Nephrite), Prof. Mueller says:
    
                "Half is written in ancient Manaurai script.  The other half
                 is in the carved symbols, or petroglyphs, of ancient Paoul, which
                 we can already comprehend. Using these petroglyphs, we can 
                 decipher the Manaurai script."
    
    The mysterious stones in the Ruins are inscribed with the Manaurai script.
    
    There seems to be a contradiction between Catherine's statement and Prof.
    Mueller's ready recognition of Manaurai script. This can be resolved if the
    inhabitants of Manaurai were not the "people of ancient Paoul". They were
    interlopers or invaders or some other sort of migrant, and they brought their
    language with them. 
    
    Even so, it is a bit dismissive of Catherine to not recognise petroglyphs as
    writing, but then this is not her area of speciality.
    
    If this is so, it suggests that Manaurai is the "small island" of the Myth of
    the Judgment Fruit and was invaded by the inhabitants of the sunken large
    island who displaced (to put it politely) the aboriginals.
    
    
    The engraved stones in the Ruins
    --------------------------------
    
    Stone 1 suggests the stones were physically transported from a distant location
    
    Stone 2 shows the written language is not Polynesian or Micronesian
    
            (sounds like we were right about the language being imported)
    
    Stone 3 definitely suggests it is a completely different form of writing
    
    Stone 4 dates the writing at 5-10,000 years, from a sophisticated civilisation
    
    Stone 5 shows an enormous triangular continent where the Pacific should be 
    
    Stone 6 bears the arms of an ancient kingdom, perhaps the ruins were left by
            the original settlers, the ancestors of the people of Paoul
    
    The translation of the stones includes
    
                "The flood comes forth... the king stands firm against the God and
                 his flood...eternal sleep covers the earth. The kingdoms fate is
                 decided...he falls with his city. A new kingdom springs up in the
                 west..." 
    
    There is a difficulty here. As one astute Gamefaqs poster pointed out, the
    stones seem to describe the flood that destroyed the ruins. But if so, who
    wrote them - and why and how would you attach them to the now flooded ruins
    even if you survived to do it?  
    
    The answer lies in the first stone. They were transported here. The stones
    describe another flood: the one that destroyed the Pacific continent, not the
    one that sank the Atoll in Manaurai.
    
    The temple was built by seven ancient kings in memory of the flood that
    destroyed their homeland. (This also explains why there were seven kings even
    though Manaurai is scarcely big enough to accommodate one king.)
    
    So Manaurai is the "new kingdom in the west": as Constantinople was to
    Rome and New Amsterdam to Amsterdam.
    
    Or at least it was until it too succumbed to flooding and earthquakes, as in
    the legend of the mermaid.
    
    Loose ends
    ----------
    
    We are left with the strange myth of the brave prince who controlled dolphins
    to avert the disaster of a flood (from the Bracelet).
    
    If this was the flood that destroyed the Pacific continent, then presumably the
    dolphins took some part in the migration to Manaurai. It was not the flood, but 
    the disaster of its impact (perhaps only on the aristocracy) that was averted.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [17.3] A CURSE AND A PACT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The creepy verses
    -----------------
    
    The Intriguing Idol (Deity Idol) gives us the verse 
    
                 "Child of Hin and Joan, A spell on Wahga thrown,
                  Crime of impure blood, The sleeping one, atone"
    
    And the unknown email sender tells us to
    
                 "Heed these words if you want to escape the ancient curse that has
                  been placed upon this object.  The statue contains the spirit of
                  an evil god from the Paleolithic era.  Delve too deep into this
                  matter and your hair will turn white with fear..."  
    
    We do not know when the statue was made, nor when the curse was placed on it,
    nor when, or if, the curse has been activated before. We do know that it still
    has some power now (the power to trigger emails at least), and so it is safe to
    assume it had some power in the past.
    
    And presumably the verse is the curse.
    
    But we don't know anything about Hin, Joan and Wahga either. So what follows is
    necessarily speculative ...
    
    And as the statue was found in the Ruins, it seems likely that the curse was
    activated after the ruins were built and may well have be the cause of the
    earthquake that sank the Ruins and flooded the palace.  
    
    It seems that the child of Hin and Joan was some sort of crime of impure
    blood. This suggests the offspring of an illicit liaison that was frowned upon.
    
    The only illicit relationship that springs to mind is between humans and
    dolphins. The offspring of which would be a mermaid obviously. So this ties in
    nicely with the mermaid legends.  
    
    So it seems that the curse was revenge for the birth of a mermaid hybrid. 
    
    However the curse was not aimed at the child, but the obscure 'sleeping one',
    and we also know that:
                
                 "in recorded history, the number of attacks on humans has been
                  exceedingly low. According to Paoul legend, this is because a
                  great human king and the killer whale king made a pact"
                 (Orca partner information)
    
    
    The Pact
    --------
    
    So the pact was at least one of protection. In fact there are two sorts of
    protection arrangements mentioned in the game, as earlier in the Orca partner
    information we find that: 
    
                 "Although friendly with dolphins, killer whales stand one rank
                  above, and dominate them like a kind of royalty. However, they
                  have gained the dolphins' trust by offering protection from
                  approaching sharks."
                 (Orca partner information)
    
    So, the Orca gives protection to the other seven dolphins and to the people of
    Paoul. Could these both be the result of the same pact? Seven dolphins, seven
    kings ... could be. It might be that the pact went something like this:
    
                 'You have heinously offended my people but I will offer you a pact.
                  If you seven kings will come and live with me as dolphins then I
                  will give you my protection from the dangers of the ocean, and I
                  will not harm the mermaid child but will protect her and her
                  descendants for ever. But your temples and palaces will be
                  destroyed and your civilisation will die.'
                 (rampantly speculative reconstruction of Orca-speak)
    
    But there is a problem here, as the legend tells us that the mermaid did not
    escape the drowned palace - the handmaid did:
    
                 "The only person to escape the tunnel was the Queen's handmaid who 
                  followed a mysterious green light and found her way out. A green
                  object... maybe it is somehow connected to that cave"
                 (email from Douglas)
    
    Now, we can reasonably assume that these ancient curses were fit for purpose -
    that they did what was said on the tin - otherwise the curse trade would have
    dropped right off in paleolithic times. So if the curse was not meant to harm
    the mermaid it wouldn't have done. It is an inescapable conclusion that it was
    the mermaid princess *disguised* as a handmaid who escaped. Indeed, it is
    unlikely that a mermaid would have any particular problem in escaping from a
    flood.
    
    And the fact that the pact was for the protection of the princess and of her
    descendants implies two things: first, that the mermaid is an ancestor of the
    modern people of Paoul (who are protected by the pact), and second that mermaids
    can have children - which suggests that they take mermaid form only when they
    are in contact with water. Indeed, we know from Douglas's email that the queen
    turned into a mermaid only when the tunnel filled with water. Presumably
    seawater only, as otherwise showering could prove embarrassingly slippery. 
    
    And as mermaid genes are of course expressed only in the female line, the
    fishermen of Paoul are unaffected. Luckily.
     
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [17.4] THE ASTONISHING CONCLUSION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Since Catherine Sunday is descended, through her mother, from the ancient
    people of Paoul, this means that she carries dolphin/mermaid genes.
    
    When she says she "can't" swim she is using the word "can't" in a special way,
    expressing not physical impossibility (as in 'I can't fly') but fear of the
    consequences (as in 'I can't jump out of this aeroplane'). 
    
    If she really can't swim what is she doing with an underwater camera?
    
    Once she touches the seawater she will turn into a mermaid and, turning a quick
    double-backflip, swim off into the appealing Manaurai sunset.
    
    No wonder she is a bit mixed up. On the other hand, if she ever got into that
    aquarium - the takings would surely increase.
    
    Douglas knows all this of course. He has done for a long time. It's what led
    him into becoming such an expert on the local mythology, and why he is so
    protective of Catherine. And why she spends the occasional night in his
    apartment in Kayah, in a bath full of seawater, having her hair done.
