The FishBase and SeaLifeBase teams offer the public a wide variety of interfaces to the underlying databases. We regularly add new tools, lists and queries that we deem useful and those that have been requested by our users, and design on request simple queries to create original datasets for research purposes.

For requests like designing complex queries to create extended datasets, prioritizing data encoding and checking on given taxonomic group or thematic, and developing new tools drawing on data that require substantial work beyond the regular tasks of the teams, we can assist you for your specific purposes, billed as services. Minimal amount will be charged for such services, only to cover staff time for the additional work. Please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
