Abstract
    This is the second in a series of species catalogues produced in the framework of a worldwide annotated and illustrated inventory of aquatic food species FAO intends to build up. The present volume covers all 49 species of scombrids known so far. It provides a comprehensive key to genera and species, preceeded by an illustrated glossary of technical terms and measurements. The systematic part of the catalogue includes a drawing and a distribution map for each species, a list of scientific and vernacular species names and wide-ranging information on habitat, biology, and fisheries. Ample reference is made to pertinent literature.
