The stamps of this notebook "" FISH OF SEA "" are illustrated with the scientific precision of the naturalist. However, the fish represented are not fixed, appear alive, even if they are on a white background, so as out of water ... Even if their common name is followed by the Latin name which designates exactly the species represented . It's just a necessary clarification: it's not a zoological board.
These sea fish are, in reality, of very different sizes. On the stamps, each occupies all the available surface. Some are considered to be in danger of extinction, others do not raise concerns. We all know them, familiar with our coasts. However, these fish live, depending on the species, in very diverse geographical areas, not only in the Mediterranean Sea or in the Atlantic Ocean, the Channel but also, as the case may be, in the Black Sea, in the subtropical waters, in the Mediterranean Sea. North, in the Indian Ocean, in the Baltic Sea ...
These fish pose the subject of biodiversity, fishing, therefore overfishing ... Of course, the fishery is regulated, taking into account the seasons, according to the reproduction cycles, the size of the fish.
