Calypso Publications.   Registered at London 1978

     A little bit of history.......................

Calypso Publications was established in 1978 as the publishing arm of Calypso Research.  We are a specialist Ichthyological publishing house. Over 100 book titles ,disks and CD's are currently in print and production. In formulating and establishing the Calypso Ichthyological DATABASE  and PHOTOLIBRARY in 1994 we  became the world's leading ichthyological taxonomic data processing house. The database is now used as a standard tool throughout the world.
In addition to the technical sides of our operations we also print a range of popular, area-based Illustrated Field Guides and handbooks together with several unclassifiable but interestingly FISHY TITLES 
Calypso is both self-financing and totally independent and actively supports several other prestigious aquatic-based organizations.

In 2003 Calypso transferred many of its technical titles to online and CD availability and is phasing out their supply as books. This allows immediate download of many technical titles and data and with CD's easier processing of data. Paper versions will still be available to special order, The main customer benefit is a price reduction on these titles of between 50 and 75 percent. A list of affected titles is linked here.
