Marine fish atlas of Denmark (38852)

Project Details


This project will produce an atlas of all the marine fish species found in waters around Denmark. The species occurrence data for the atlas will be based on all types of observational data, such as; fisheries research surveys, commercial fish landings data, recreational fishermen’s landings and diver observations. Users and target audience of the atlas are university and high school students and instructors, scientists, government officials, private companies, NGOs, and the wider Danish public. The atlas will be a reference for scientific outreach product and is a collaboration between DTU Aqua, the Zoological Museum of the Natural History Museum of Denmark and a small private consulting company operated by the former biologist of the Danish Fishermen’s Association. The atlas will contain photographs and maps of the distributional area each species and a short (3-5 page) text describing current knowledge of species’ biology and life history in Danish waters.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua.
