ABSTRACT

This is the fifteenth issue in the FAO series of world-wide annotated and illustrated catalogues of the groups of marine organisms that enter marine fisheries. This volume covers 23 species in 16 genera of gempylids (snake mackerels, snoeks, escolars, gemfishes, domine, oilfishes) and 32 species in 9 genera of trichiurids (cutlassfishes, scabbardfishes, hairtails, and frostfishes). It includes an introductory section with general remarks on habitat, biology, fisheries, systematics, zoogeography and problems of identification, a glossary of technical terms, illustrated keys to genera and species, including regional keys, detailed accounts of species, and a table of species by major fishing area. Species accounts include illustrations, scientific and vernacular names, references to scientific names, information on habitat, biology and fisheries, and a distribution map. The work is fully indexed and there is an extensive reference to pertinent literature.
