Description
Marine species register for the North Sea. Used to support other biological database activities on the North Sea currently undertaken at VLIZ. more

VLIZ is currently doing several projects involving databases of North Sea flora and fauna. To make sure taxonomy used in these different projects is consistent, VLIZ developed a separate database supporting these different activities. Aphia, the resulting species register, is complemented with extra information like vernacular names. VLIZ hopes to have a collection of slides on-line in a not-too-distant future to further enhance this database.
