Kunzmann, A. and Randall, J.E. and Suprihanto, I. (1999) Checklist of the shore fishes of the Mentawai Islands, Nias Island and the Padang Region of West Sumatra. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 22(1), pp. 4-10.
This paper presents a checklist of reef fishes of West Sumatra and adjacent provinces. The list includes 362 species of 143 genera and 46 families and contains seven new records and nine probable new species for Indonesia. It also uses information from sources only available in Bahasa Indonesia. The relative paucity of the fish fauna in West Sumatra seems to be related to the habitat destruction caused by illegal fishing with explosives or poisons such as cyanide.
