Data Resources for Marine Aquarium Trade

Today I will present a talk at the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America in Washington, D.C., titled “The Devil is in the Data; Why Data Matter.” During the talk I will mention several resources audience members may want to use, and this blog entry provides links. For those unable to attend today’s talk, I will be writing about these resources in future posts, so stay tuned.

Marine Aquarium Biodiversity and Trade Flow Database

Non-indigenous Aquatic Species Database


IUCN Red List

Corals of the World (Not Operational Yet)

Do you have another online source of data that may be useful to the aquarium trade as it moves toward a more data-centric trade with greater traceability? Please add the link in the comments field below. Thanks!
