MetadataShow full item record
The key is a compilation of known literature, covering the identification of estuarine and marine fishes, into a single volume and includes only those adult fishes known, or expected to occur along the Texas coast. The format consists of a key to the orders, then families within orders, and species within families. The key provides a simple method for identifying a fish and requires elimination, by a series of alternate choices, all groups of fishes except the one in question.
