This is the first pictorial book about ichthyotoxic, medicinal and dangerous fishes of China. With pictorial illustrations, the fishes are introduced under the three categories of ichthyotoxic, medicinal, and dangerous fishes. A total number of 420 species are described. The ichthyotoxic fishes are further categorized into “Ciguatera-producing fishes”, “Poisonous puffer-like fishes”, “Ichthyotoxic fishes”, “Call-bladder poisonous fishes”, “Ichthyohemotoxic fishes”, “Gempylotoxic-fishes”, “Carchatoxin-producing fishes”, “Venomous or Acanthotoxic fishes” and “Ichthyocrinotoxic fishes”. The dangerous fishes are further categorized into “biting fishes”, “electric fishes”, “fishes with saw”, “semi-parasitic fishes”. Apart from providing brief descriptions on the morphology, habit and distribution of each species, this book introduces their threats or types of poisoning, symptoms, and treatment methods. Besides, the medicinal value and utilization of medicinal fishes are also briefly described. A total of 75 fish species included in this book(including the dangerous fishes which attack man, the biting fishes, the fishes with saw, the electric fishes) are described for the first time in China. In addition, 19 species of exotic dangerous fishes known worldwide are also included. This will help the prevention of biological invasion and conservation of our ecosystem.
