Abstract
    The collection of the Zoological Institute RAN (ZIN) is one of the largest in the world and contains over 100,000 samples of 26,000 species of marine invertebrates and over 160,000 specimens of 8,700 species of marine and freshwater fishes and fishlike vertebrates of the world. Digitizing these catalogue data and creating a virtual library is now one of the main objectives of ZIN. The creation of the collection database on fish and invertebrates started in 1987 and is now very prospective for studying biocoenotic relationships and marine fauna ecosystems. In the course of the organization of our faunistic, ecological and collection data, the informational retrieval systems OCEAN and ECOANT (in standard ZOOCOD) were designed at the ZIN. The databases comprise Pleuronectiformes and Scorpaeniformes, as well as chiton, bivalve and brittle star collections. Different international projects are in development now, and it will be necessary to examine the experiences of these teams and from here make the attempt to create not ideal but optimal systems for the input and treatment of marine data.
