Conxemar’s Catalogue of Commercial Fishing Species, (EN, ES)
Conxemar is the Spanish association of 222 wholesalers, importers, manufacturers and exporters of fish products and aquaculture.
The catalogue contains 319 entries of fish, mollusc and crustacean species selected for their economic relevance. Each entry provides the user with the common name, binomial nomenclature and FAO code for each species. Together with a description and an illustration, it also includes the name of the species in several languages, taxonomical information and the fishing gear used for capture.

Professor Inmaculada Anaya Revuelta contributed with 88 descriptions taken from her doctoral thesis titled Ictionimic Denominations: Semantic Study of a Prototype and the description model used in this catalogue.
Mr Julio Valeiras Mota contributed with the technical validation thanks to his expertise in marine biology.
