This field guide covers the major resource groups likely to be encountered in the fisheries of Somalia. These groups include shrimps, lobsters, bivalves, gastropods, cephalopods, sharks, batoid fishes, bony fishes and sea turtles. Each resource group is introduced by a general section on pertinent technical terms and measurements and an illustrated guide to the orders and families of the group. The annotated and illustrated list of the more important species includes scientific nomenclature, FAO names in English and French (where available), local Somali names, maximum size, notes on fisheries, habitat and biology, diagnostic features and one or more illustrations.
