Description

The Multilingual Illustrated Dictionary of Aquatic Animals and Plants provides a unique reference to the names of 1532 species of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, seaweeds and other fishery products that are landed worldwide. The names of these species can vary significantly between neighbouring regions of a country, from the size of the fish, from the stage of its life cycle, from the season of the year, and from its degree of treatment after capture. Co-published by the European Commission and Fishing News Books, the Multilingual Illustrated Dictionary of Aquatic Animals and Plants seeks to address this problem and to eliminate much of the existing confusion. New to the Second Edition of this acclaimed Dictionary is the addition of Finnish and Swedish to each existing entry. The Dictionary has been expanded to include new species and illustrations. For each entry, the following information is given: Reference number (the number given to the species within the index); Scientific (Latin) name; Family name; English name; Dutch name; French name; Danish name; German name; Greek name; Italian name; Portuguese name; Spanish name; Finnish name; Swedish name. Comprehensively illustrated, the New Second Edition of the multilingual Illustrated Dictionary of Aquatic Animals and Plants is an essential reference for all involved in the commercial fishing industries both within and beyond the boundaries of the European Union
