[Taxacom] Need advice from aquatic/marine readers

For writing simply a plexiglass table and a pencil... You cut the
plexiglass and remove the glossy first layer with sand paper and
that's it, you can then write there. If you are planing to do some
kind of census, the best is to use a table with the species so you can
easily count...

that's the cheapest.

cheers
