This is primarily a scientific book, in some ways a sequel to the 1989 revision of Lake Malawi haplochromines by Eccles and Trewavas.

It is a documentation of recent work by Jos Snoeks and colleagues, European and African, on the cichlids of the Lake, and includes a major revision of Copadichromis with descriptions of new species, a review of Nimbochromis, a study of the deep-water Placidochromis species, again with new taxa described, a review of the sifters (Lethrinops et al.), and chapters on biogeography and sampling. There is also a short overview of the non-cichlids.

The illustrations include a large number of colour drawings, B/W photos (mainly of specimens) and a number of colour photos of live fish by Ad Konings.

The Cichlid Diversity of Lake Malawi / Nyasa / Niassa is an invaluable work of reference for anyone with a serious interest in Malawi cichlids.
