Fisheries Websites: A

Web Sites On Fisheries

The following web sites on fisheries were culled from different sources. The compilations in Naga; the ICLARM Newsletter and from the compilation of Dennis Almazan Mateo (unpublished, 2002) provided a lot of information.

Arranged alphabetically, most of the items have short descriptions to serve as guide.

It must be noted that since this compilation was done since 2002, it is possible that some of the sites have been removed from the web or they have been changed.

It must be noted too that some of the sites provide free full text, but others might just give free abstract.

Due to the bulk of this list, I will just post it serially.
