Description: Welcome to the world of fishes. The purpose of this page is to give you
background information on FishBase, a global information system with all you
ever wanted to know about fishes. FishBase is a relational database with
information to cater to different professionals such as research scientists,
fisheries managers, zoologists and many more. FishBase on the web contains
practically all fish species known to science. The FishBase 2000 CD-ROM
contains full information on 25,000 species and comes on 4 CD-ROMS. It can be
ordered for 95 US$ including air-mail.

FishBase was developed at the International Center for Living Aquatic
Resources Management (ICLARM) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and many other partners, and with
support from the European Commission (EC). Since 2001 FishBase is supported by
a consortium of seven research institutions.
