Fishing is considered to be the largest extractive use of wildlife in the world. About 90% of all freshwater fisheries occur in developing countries. Well-illustrated with approximately 250 images of species, this book deals with nutritional facts of different groups of edible freshwater life: algae and plants, crustaceans (prawns, crayfish and crabs), molluscs (bivalves and gastropods), and fish and frogs along with their characteristics such as classification, common names, habitats, global distribution and biological features.
