About this book

Language: French

Presented as a catalogue, this work is aimed at the amateur naturalist, the fisherman, the scuba diver, but also the tourist curious to discover the marine fish of West Africa. The professional fisherman and the maritime fishing agent will find there the scientific and vernacular names in local languages of Ouoloff, Léboui, Soussou, Sérère, Mandingue and Vili.

The most common species have been selected and a few others retained for their morphological or biological originality. The quality of the illustrations makes it possible to identify the fish without identification keys. For each species, a short description, insisting on the distinctive characters and the coloration, completes the drawing. Data on geographical distribution, habitat, and biology are also presented. A glossary facilitates reading for the non-specialist.

Summary in French:
Présenté comme un catalogue, cet ouvrage s'adresse au naturaliste amateur, au pêcheur, au plongeur sous-marin, mais aussi au touriste curieux de découvrir les poissons de mer de l'Ouest africain. Le pêcheur professionnel et l'agent des pêches maritimes y trouveront les noms scientifiques et vernaculaires nécessaires à leur activité, en ouoloff, léboui, soussou, sérère, mandingue et vili.

Les espèces les plus communes ont été sélectionnées et quelques autres retenues pour leur originalité morphologique ou biologique. La qualité de l'illustration permet d'identifier le poisson sans clés de détermination. Pour chaque espèce, une courte description, insistant sur les caractères distinctifs et la coloration, complète le dessin. Des données sur la répartition géographique, l'habitat, la biologie sont également présentées. Un glossaire facilite la lecture pour le non-spécialiste.
