Marine Distributions

For marine species, country records have been provided wherever possible. This information has been derived from a number of sources; for example, FishBase and the many publications by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

For many marine species, especially those that are strictly marine, the FAO Fishing Areas occupied by the species are also shown. For inland water species, only country occurences are shown, however the inland water bodies these species occur in are summarized in the geographic range text for these species.
