FishBase is the world’s largest encyclopedia about fish, freely available on the web, started in 1988. FishBase goals are to disseminate published, curated, information about fish; to act as a long-term repository for information about fish; to be a platform for fish and fisheries research and education; and to be a free and easily available information and analysis tool, with special emphasis on the needs of users in developing countries. FishBase is a consortium comprising 11 member organizations, and it’s main office is in Los Baños, the Philippines. The Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm, is the Swedish member of the consortium.
