Q-quatics is a non-profit organization maintaining and developing a network of information systems that provide biodiversity and fisheries data on all aquatic life on earth and the related analytical tools for their sustainable management and/or conservation. Our vision is to provide the basic knowledge of humanity in this domain free of charge primarily via the World Wide Web.
Q-quatics maintains and develops FishBase, SeaLifeBase, AquaMaps, and the Sea Around Us databases and related products, in order to support global management/conservation options for living aquatic resources, including their sustainable use and possible responses to climate change. It operates under the scientific governance of the FishBase Consortium.
Q-quatics seeks active cooperation in order to continuously improve the service and ensure good user experience. The development of new features and/or components are facilitated through fund-raising activities and collaborations.
