This pocket guide is the first species identification tool for marine fishery resources in Liberia and was produced based on information collected by the author during a field trip to Liberia in January 2013. The 36 species included were selected because of primary importance for the coastal marine fisheries in the country. It should be noted that there are many more marine species exploited by coastal fisheries in Liberia than could not be included here.

The format of the pocket guide was developed for the use by non-taxonomists and to facilitate the communication with practitioners (fishers and marketers). For this purpose the FishFinder Programme assigns great importance to species local names. Here, the most common local Liberian name of a species is prioritised; additional names in use are also listed by the location in which they were encountered. Users of this pocket guide should be aware that the same local name often applies to several species and that one species may be known by more than one local name (if known to the author this is remarked on the cards).

To aid in a quick identification, the pocket guide includes a colour coded grouping of species based on simple morphological characteristics (fins) as well as symbols for maximum sizes, ecological preferences and catch methods.
