About this book

Language: French

This practical book provides the main characteristics of freshwater fish in Western and Central European water bodies, their lifestyles, food, and the waters where they are most often observed (mountain streams, estuaries and brackish waters, stagnant lakes, etc.). A total of 135 species are then systematically described with great precision: distinctive signs, food, biology, reproduction, and the waters they prefer, and fishing methods. The book also discusses the history of fishing (commercial fishing, fish farming) as well as the dangers to fish and aquatic environments.
