    As a character performer, I picked up Raina's book after meeting her on a mermaid performer online network. She's a delightful person and has written an extremely comprehensive, thorough and engaging guide to the many aspects of mermaid performance. From her substantial resources section to detailed costume and equipment advice, no topic has gone overlooked. I consider this book the gold standard for any aquatic character performer, and it's even influenced my own work in writing a party princess handbook along the same vein. Buy it with confidence! -Mermaid Aquarianne

    I bought this book a while back and read it quickly. Its a wonderful guide and great to have on hand as a sort of reference. Whenever I'm curious about something, as mainly a hobbyist, I can easily locate the information in her book. Mermaids!

    I bought a digital copy of this book back in early 2014, just as I was starting to really dive in to the online mermaid (and merman!) community— and it's helped me a lot, especially with learning about all the basics to taking a fun hobby and going pro. If you're a mermaid or merman looking to turn your hobby into a business, then "Fishy" Business: How To Be A Mermaid is an absolute MUST-HAVE! There are few better resources into the world of professional mermaiding than Raina's book and website!

    I decided to leave a review after seeing that Raina is being harassed by some idiot guy leaving fake reviews. When you get to be this level, you get haters! This book is a great resource for helping you get your mermaid business started. I bought it back when it first came out and have since gifted it to several of my mermaid friends. There are a few things I would of liked to see more in-depth but I understand it is tricky as she's Canadian. Being in the UK, I don't have all the same rules she does. This really is the perfect start up book to help you get going on the journey, and has interesting stories from her life.

    This book really helped me when I first got into mermaiding and have me an idea of what to expect. It is an excellent guide and reference for all things mermaid related! I would suggest it to everyone who is currently in the mermaid business or who wants to enter it.

    I really enjoyed this book. Mermaid Raina walks us through the ins and outs of becoming a mer and starting a business (if that is what you want to do) The pictures are cute as well, my son just got his first tail and is in love with the picture of Raina in a fabric tail and a life jacket. He uses that as his mantra 'Raina couldn't swim well before her tail and she became a mer so I can do it too'

    Finished reading this book within hours of recieving it. As a freelance photographer a lot of the advice crosses over so I was already aware of a lot of the advice given on photography and business law areas BUT even I found great new advice and tips in this book which is well written and full of honest annecdotes and stories to explain Raina's journey. It is packed full of rescources and information at the back. I can see this book being a great tool to loan to friends and family to help answer all their mer-related questions. All in all a great book, I look forward to the sequal =)

    This book is a really interesting read for anyone who has ever dreamed about mermaids. Even if you aren't looking to be a mermaid performer, the author's story is a really interesting one. The info also applies to other performing arts jobs. Really funny parts, loved the tone. Great photos too. Paperback is a nice version, printed very lovely.
