    Abstract

    Taxonomy is basically the science of correctly naming species. The term has often been confused with fish identification, which basically refers to the use of the latest taxonomic information to identify fishes. The job of the Fish Taxonomist is to name and classify species in a way that makes it easier for fisheries scientists, and other “users”, to correctly identify fish species during their work. In other words, fish taxonomy is practiced by very few, whereas fish identification is practised daily by many people.
