On the bookshelf
Our planet is home to approximately 30,000 fish species. Almost anywhere there is water, there are fish. The variation in size is enormous: from gobies of no more than a centimetre in length to sunfish that weigh more than 2000 kg and reach a height (fins included) of more than 4 metres.
The plentiful facts presented in this book are complemented with more than a hundred photographs, making this little volume a good catch for fans of nature, fishing and aquaria.
