Five Language Dictionary of Fish, Crustaceans and Molluscs.


by Willibald Krane. 475 pages. Price: 50.00 [pounds]. (Germany: Behr's Verlag).

During recent years the international trade in fish and seafood has increased greatly to the advantage of the consumer who has been able to eat a wider variety of fish. In its wake this has brought the desire for more knowledge about fish types, especially new ones found which one then needs to purchase.

This technical dictionary features no fewer than five languages so one can look up the name of a fish species in a language and then immediately see what it is in the other four. In the event of any difficulty, it is only necessary to turn to the latter half of the book, find the language of your choice which immediately provides a number that locates the translation in the dictionary itself. Quite clearly there is more than one way of finding your way around this useful text.

The publishers tell us that more than 2000 species of fish and shellfish are listed and the five languages concerned are English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
