An international symposium on the ontogeny and systematics of fishes was held in August 1983 and the results were published late in 1984 in a book entitled "Ontogeny and Systematics of Fishes." The material for the book was based on articles prepared by 78 authors from 10 countries and represents, in part, the state of knowledge on the identification of fish eggs, larvae and juveniles. I have summarized this knowledge to provide an overview of the areas where information is complete and where information is lacking. The results highlight areas of concern, especially the reef resources of the tropical areas of the oceans.
