Abstract

Bleeker's work represents the most prolific of any Indo-Pacific ichthyologist. Although he published on fishes around the Indo-Pacific, Europe, Africa, and South America, the vast majority of the taxa of fishes he described were from Indonesia. He described 1,925 new species (more than any other ichthyologist) of which 743 remain valid.
