pisces 23

Product Description

The program contains instructions for the identification of larval, juvenile and adult stages of more than 90 fish species, known from Central European waters. The larval phase has been divided into 5 stages covering the free embryonic to early juvenile stage. Juvenile and adult fish were also included in the program, resulting in the documentation of seven developmental stages of each species (as far as larval material was available). The program offers the possibility to compare the species within a stage or the stages with each other, or to compare pictures of the development series (larval stages I-V, larval stage I-Juvenile, larval stage I-Adult). Missing images will be added in the coming years via updates.
