Abstract
    This is the sixth in the FAO series of worldwide annotated and illustrated catalogues of major groups of organisms that enter marine fisheries. The present volume includes 103 lutjanid species belonging to 17 genera. It provides comprehensive, illustrated keys and a glossary of technical terms and measurements. Individual accounts of species include drawings, scientific and vernacular names, information on habitat, biology and fisheries, and a distribution map. The work is fully indexed and there is ample reference to pertinent literature.
