About this book

Language: Japanese

Many creatures live in the sea that cannot be seen from the outside. Not only fish, but also squid, octopus, and crustaceans such as crabs and shrimp, from large to invisibly small. Some of these creatures float in the sea with their small bodies for a while after they are born. And there are a lot of small fish (once dried these are known in chirimenjako in Japanese) that get caught in the net with anchovy. You will find many strangely shaped creatures that make you want to call them monsters. This is a pictorial book of such microscopic creatures floating in the sea.

Summary in Japanese:
外からは見えない海の中には、たくさんの生き物がすんでいます。魚はもちろんですが、魚以外にも、イカやタコ、そしてカニやエビなどの甲殻類もいっぱいすんでいます。大きいものから目に見えないくらい小さいものまで。

そんな生きもののなかには、生まれてしばらくは小さい体で海の中を漂っていたりします。そして、チリメンジャコ漁でカタクチイワシと一緒に網にかかるものがたくさんいます。なかには、モンスターと言いたくなるような奇妙な形をした生きものもいっぱい見つかります。

本書は、そんな、海の中を漂っているミクロな生きものの図鑑です。
この図鑑を広げて、チリメンジャコと一緒に網にかかった生きもの、チリメンモンスターの中に広がる世界を存分にお楽しみください。
