Database for the Atlas of Freshwater Fishes
A collated information source on the distribution of all freshwater and estuarine fish species for Britain. The data are derived from a variety of sources and as such were collected by both professionals and volunteers.
This dataset relates to the publication: Davies, C. E., Shelley, J., Harding, P. T., McLean, I. F. G., Gardiner, R. & Peirson, G., eds. 2004. Freshwater fishes in Britain - the species and their distribution. Harley Books, Colchester.
There are records from throughout the UK and some parts of Ireland, although recording density is strongest in England and Wales.
Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, the scheme works with all contributing recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
Records have been subject to routine validation by BRC.
