Australian Fish Species Distribution Maps
Entry ID: CSIRO_AusFishSpecies

Abstract: This dataset is a series of GIS maps of fish species distributions
around Australia. For known Australian fish species, including some
sharks, their spatial - including vertical - distributions have been
determined. As of June 1996, this is the recognised distribution for
these species at different stages of their life cycles. This dataset
forms a major reference work.
