FishBase is a global species database (GSD) with finfish information catering to different professionals such as research scientists, fisheries managers, zoologists and many more. This GSD on the web contains practically all fish species known to science with information for at least 34,000 species.

FishBase was developed at the WorldFish Center (then ICLARM) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and many other partners and donors. Currently it is managed by the FishBase Information and Research Group, Inc. Scientific support is provided by twelve Consortium members (see below).
