This app is great for info. But when it comes to looking at it on my iPad it doesn't support the larger field of view on the iPad you must zoom in order to view full screen. Not worth the money for an iPhone only view
Very helpful tool, especially for chefs. Love the training bids about how to butcher various fish.
Needs more for $2
Needs pictures, more species of fish and more complete descriptions
