Australian fish mapping tool launched

FishMap has been launched to allow users to discover which fish live in any location at any depth along Australia’s continental shelf and slope.

Users can create regional illustrated species lists for almost all of Australia's marine fish, detailed with photographs and illustrations, distribution maps and current scientific and common names.

"Australia's marine biodiversity is among the richest in world, but until FishMap we lacked an Australia-wide capability to rapidly produce regional, illustrated species lists," says ichthyologist Daniel Gledhill of CSIRO's Wealth from Oceans Flagship.

“FishMap is the only resource of its kind in the world that covers virtually all species of marine fish found in the marine waters of an entire continent,” he explained.

FishMap has been developed by CSIRO’s Wealth from Oceans Flagship and the Atlas of Living Australia.
