Notes to  the reader 

Since the book was published in 1910 there have been many changes. The seas have been polluted by plastic and other waste. The temperatures have altered due to global warming, and some species have become endangered due to that and over-fishing. 

Other species are now found further north than ever before. 

However, the species are accurately described along with detailed images. 

There are other articles on fish on this site. Go to content banners above click on the relevant title and scroll down to view.
