Description:

This field guide covers the major resource groups likely to be encountered in the fisheries of Kenya. This includes shrimps, lobsters, crabs, bivalves, gastropods, cephalopods, sea cucumbers, sharks, batoid fishes, bony fishes, and sea turtles. Each resource group is introduced by a general section on technical terms and measurements pertinent to that group and an illustrated guide to orders and families of the group. The more important species are treated in a subsequent guide that includes scientific nomenclature, FAO names in English and French (were available), local names used in Kenya, diagnostic features, one or more illustrations, maximum size, and notes on fisheries and habitat. The guide is fully indexed and a list of further literature is appended.
