This book offers the first comprehensive introduction to the 480 currently known fresh- and brackish-water fishes of Suriname, including identification keys, short descriptions and photographs of the species and descriptions of their habitats.

Review:

""The freshwater fishes of Suriname" est un ouvrage de grande utilite, a la fois pour les scientifiques et les gestionnaires des milieux aquatiques. Les scientifiques y trouveront les donnees essentielles pour la comparaison des peuplements ichtyologiques dans les differents pays du secteur geographique, qui va de l Amapa bresilien au Venezuela, en d autres termes de l embouchure de l Amazone a celle de l Orenoque. Les gestionnaires, pour leur part, ont maintenant un outil precieux pour determiner les especes peuplant les differents bassins hydrographiques surinamiens, leur permettant ainsi de mieux asseoir leur travail." Francois J. Meunier, "Cybium 2013, 37(4): 272."

Meunier, Cybium 2013, 37(4): 272. "Although there have been other books on Suriname fishes or parts of it (many with J.H.A/ Mol as author or co-author), this is the most detailed study on Surinames fishes, making these fish fauna to one of the best studied of South America. This book is of greatest value not only for ichthyologists studying the South American fish fauna, especially of the neighbored Amazon one, as there are many similarities and relations, but also to aquarists with a special interest in South American fishes as many of the fish presented herein make excellent aquarium fish and partially have a very long aquaristic history." - Harro Hieronimus in Bulletin of Fish Biology, volume 14 no. 1/2, 30-12-2013
