FishBase is a relational database with fish species information for research scientists, fisheries managers, zoologists, etc. FishBase on the web contains practically all fish species known to science. FishBase was developed at the WorldFish Center 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 nine research institutions.
