This vintage book comprises a comprehensive checklist of species of fish found in the Philippine Archipelago. Complete with detailed descriptions, details on their natural history, and other interesting and useful information, this volume will be of considerable utility to the discerning fisherman, and it would make for a great addition to collections of antiquarian fishing literature. Many old books such as this are increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction. David Starr Jordan (1851 - 1931) was a seminal ichthyologist, educator, eugenicist, and activist for peace.
