This dictionary, Noms de peixos (“Names of fishes”), is a descriptive work elaborated by Jordi Lleonart, with TERMCAT’s terminological advice and the collaboration of the Biology Section of the Institute for Catalan Studies. It is complemented by the online dictionary Noms de mamífers marins ('Names of marine mammals').

It includes 5150 Catalan names for fishes corresponding to 1325 scientific names, referred to the field of icthyology, presented in more than 480 terminological entries referred to zoological taxa, with the documentation sources. Each entry gathers the Catalan denominations, the equivalents in Spanish, English and French, sometimes also in Deustch, Italian and Portuguese, and the scientific name. It also features some notes with information about the origins and uses of Catalan names.

As it is a descriptive dictionary, we recommend consulting the preface and the introduction of this book to find out which data can be consulted and which value should be attributed to the denominations in each entry.

Clicking on "Consulta de termes" (‘Term search’), terms can be looked up in three ways: using the alphabetical indexes (there is a different index for each language), using the thematic access or making simple or advanced searches in the upper space "Text de la consulta" (‘Text search’) in any of the dictionary languages.
