‘Threatened Fishes of The World’ Series, an Update

  • Jim A. Cambray


The series of one-page articles on the ‘Threatened fishes of the world’ was launched in 1995 (Bruton 1995, Moyle & Moyle 1995). Since then ichthyologists and fish biologists throughout the world have contributed 97 articles (Environmental Biology of Fishes vol. 43–57, Table 1). In 15 volumes of the journal 37 families have been so far included. The largest number of contributions was on species in the family Cyprinidae (23) followed by Galaxiidae (8). Eighty-four contributions have been on freshwater, seven on estuarine and six on marine fish species (Table 2).
