Geo-referenced site scale data of freshwater fishes of Europe and adjacent areas

With this initiative BioFresh collects geo-referenced fish distribution data from Europe and adjacent areas. Already, about 250,000 site scale data have been made available by implementing the data from the project Improvement and Spatial extension of the European Fish Index (EFI+) and national or regional projects initiated by BioFresh (see below). These are mostly data hidden in databases of national fisheries institutes, databases of regional fish collections as well as in grey literature. All these databases and literature resources have be collected together, and the records have been geo-referenced and organised into one database which is currently in a progress of quality control.

The BioFresh European Freshwater Fish Database will then also be populated by the large amount of data available from GBIF and from the digitalisation of various published national fish atlas projects. We expect that about one million or even more records will be available at the end of the project.
