Abstract
    The Sea Fisheries Institute in Gdynia was founded in 1949, as a result of merging of two institutions: the Marine Fishery Laboratory (established in 1921) and the Sea Fisheries Institute Association (established in 1928), and is the oldest sea research institution in Poland. The principal areas of research conducted by the institute include fishery biology and oceanography, fish processing technology and fisheries economics. Together with the Institute its library has developed. In the beginning it possessed only dozens of books and periodicals (1921), now it houses about 15 000 of books and 833 titles of journals. The SFI Library offers a unique and the only collection in Poland dedicated to sea fisheries research. Since 1921, a rich collection of books, journals etc. has been built and it encompasses publications from numerous international publishers and organizations related to fisheries; the latter cover those of the FAO, ICES (a full documentation of the meetings), NEAFC, NAFO, CCAMLR, the International Baltic Sea Fishery Commission - IBSFC. Besides, the Library has collected a number of atlases, encyclopedias, dictionaries, keys for identifying fish and living sea organisms. It also offers the Polish Bibliography of Sea Fisheries from 1945 to 1991. The topics of the collection are: biological and physical oceanography; ichthyology and the biology and ecology of the seas; living resources and their management; catch techniques; processing technologies for raw food of marine origin; fishery market economics. The mostprecious collections of the library are the collection of old Polish and foreign scientific books and journals from the early XX- th century and even older.
