    No results found.

    The FAO FishFinder Programme produces identification tools for fishery purposes. To date the Programme has described over 8000 aquatic species and has an archive for more than 40000 scientifically reviewed species drawings. This information is organized in many publications accessible on the FAO web pages (http://www.fao.org/fishery/sidp/en). This FAO FishFinder pocket guide was developed to assist in the quick field identification of i mportant commercial species and can be useful to: ichthyologists; fishery data collectors, observers and inspectors; consumers; fishery science teachers; and everybody else interested in the marine fauna and fisheries of Kenya. The FAO FishFinder pocket guide user must keep in mind that he/she will encounter many other and often similar marine species in the landings and at the markets. To help identify these species a mini disc is included containing more comprehensive FAO identification guides for fishery resources in the Western Indian Ocean.

    Important Coastal Fishery Species of Liberia. A Pocket Guide 2013
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This pocket guide is the first species identification tool for marine fishery resources in Liberia and was produced based on information collected by the author during a field trip to Liberia in January 2013. The 36 species included were selected because of primary importance for the coastal marine fisheries in the country. It should be noted that there are many more marine species exploited by coastal fisheries in Liberia than could not be included here. The format of the pocket guide was devel oped for use by non-taxonomists and to facilitate communication with practitioners (fishers and marketers). For this purpose, the FishFinder Programme assigns great importance to species local names. Here, the most common local Liberian name of a species is prioritized; additional names in use are also listed by the location in which they were encountered. Users of this pocket guide should be aware that the same local name often applies to several species and that one species may be known by mor e than one local name (where known to the author, this is indicated on the cards). To aid in quick identification, the pocket guide includes a colour-coded grouping of species based on simple morphological characteristics (fins) as well as symbols for maximum sizes, ecological preferences and catch methods.
