Local Names of Fishes in the Visayas, Philippines

Local Names of Fishes in the Visayas, Philippines : Cebu, Guimaras, Iloilo, Leyte, and Samar

Introduction

A student approached me and asked me if there is any book that gives the local names of Philippine fishes, particularly in the Visayas regions.. I checked the works of Conlu, Rao and Rao, and then by Herre.

The work of Conlu gives an extensive list of Philippine fishes with local names but it does not specify the partilucar province. For example the dalag, Ophicephalus striatus Bloch. It says: Haruan, Haluan (V). with these local names, you can never be sure which province in the Visayas this fish is called Haluan or Haruan. Is this Cebuano, Hiligaynon, Kinaray-a, Boholano, Waray, or Aklanon? The work by Rao and Rao gives us the local names only in the Central Visayas areas. Herre's work is of national in scope just like Conlu but no specific province or language. Besides, Herre’s work was prepared in the 1950s. The work by Ganadan and Lavapie-Gonzales, although it gives the local names, scientific name, and English names by Region, but it has no index. So it is very difficult to use.

So I worked on this list hoping that this will shorten the research works of our students. And researchers.

This work lists the commercial marine fishes in the Visayan Regions VI (Iloilo and Guimaras), Region VII (Cebu), and VIII (Leyte and Samar). It includes the scientific names, English names, local names, and their family names. The printed form of this list has an intensive index.

I know this is not complete.

If you have found any mistakes, please inform me immediately so that we can make the necessary correction. (gumamilacruz@yahoo.com)
