What do the sets contain?

Well, maybe you could use a table with each item of the set like:

PK SetNo Item
1 1 Cod
2 1 Trout
3 1 Mackerel
4 2 Seal
5 2 Dolphin
6 3 Dove
7 3 Seagull
8 3 Hawk
9 3 Owl

And then another table:

SetNo SetName
1 Fish
2 Sea mammals
3 Birds

Or am I completely off track in understanding what you mean by set?

-I occasionally sit at a table, but no-one ever put me into one
