The Catalog of Fishes covers more than 53,000 species and subspecies, over
10,000 genera and subgenera, and includes in excess of 16,000 bibliographic
references.  Entries for species, for example, consist of species/subspecies
name, genus, author, date, publication, pages, figures, type locality,
location of type specimen(s), current status (with references),
family/subfamily, and important publication, taxonomic, or nomenclatural
notes.  Nearly all original descriptions have been examined, and much
effort has gone into determining the location of type specimens.

The Catalog of the Genera are updated from Eschmeyer's 1990 Genera of Recent
Fishes.  Both genera and species are listed in a classification using recent
taxonomic schemes.  Also included are a lengthy list of museum acronyms, an
interpretation of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature and
Opinions of the International Commission involving fishes.

The Catalog of Fishes consists of three hardbound volumes of 900-1000 pages
each, along with a CD-ROM (not sold separately).  This work is an essential
reference for taxonomists, scientific historians, and for any specialist
dealing with fishes.
