Inland Fisheries Information Resources

The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture (SOFIA): SOFIA is the flagship publication of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department. This premier advocacy document is published every two years to provide policy-makers, civil society and those whose livelihoods depend on the sector a comprehensive, objective and global view of capture fisheries and aquaculture, including associated policy issues.

Fish Base: A relational database with information to cater to different professionals such as research scientists, fisheries managers, zoologists, and many more. FishBase on the web contains practically all fish species known to science.

Mekong Fish Network: The Mekong Fish Network connects researchers across borders in the lower Mekong River basin to improve the study, management, and conservation of the river’s unique and valuable fish and wildlife. We work to advance the scientific capacity of regional researchers and institutions, facilitate the sharing and standardized collection of data, and help inform resource use decisions in this ecologically diverse and productive region.


Michigan State University: Michigan State University Spartans work to advance the common good in uncommon ways. The pioneer land-grant university in the United States, MSU began as a bold experiment that democratized higher education and helped bring science and innovation into everyday life. Today, MSU is one of the top research universities in the world—on one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the United States—and is home to a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists and leaders.

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations: FAO works together with the United Nations system to support global sustainable development initiatives in order to secure responsible fisheries worldwide.
