Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

This is a fantastic collection from two of the world's leading origami creators. Most of the models are challenging, so I wouldn't recommend this book to beginners.

The book also contains an interesting article about the development of sea life origami over the ages, and information about each sea critter.

"Origami Sea Life" is now out of print, but has been re-issued (with many differences) as Origami Under the Sea

There are 38 Origami Designs in Origami Sea Life:
