The GISFish Web site has been launched, so may I ask you to kindly forward the announcement below to colleagues who could benefit from the GISFish Web site, particularly those in developing countries who are our target audience.

"GISFish" is a Gateway to Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing and Mapping for Aquaculture and Inland Fisheries. 


GISFish is a brand new Web site of the Aquaculture Conservation and Management Service (FIMA) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and a number of collaborating institutions.


It is evident there are many opportunities to use GIS, remote sensing and mapping to improve the sustainability of aquaculture and inland fisheries, but the more widespread use of these tools is impeded by a limited of awareness of their benefits and a lack of access to experience on how they can be deployed. GISFish was created to overcome these impediments. It is aimed at GIS practitioners and fisheries and aquaculture professionals in developing countries.


GISFish makes the global experience on GIS, remote sensing and mapping as applied to aquaculture and inland fisheries issues easily accessible.  Past experience is packaged as searchable data bases of applications published in the mainstream and gray literature. Applications are in the form of case studies, abstracts, and often, downloadable full publications. Sharing of current experience is promoted through discussions and posting of on-going projects.   Additionally, case studies, training opportunities, data sources, tools and freeware, news and events are featured.  


Material in GISFish is constantly updated and expanded. Near future improvements will include increased coverage of abstracts and of full papers. Additional links to Cultured Aquatic Species fact sheets will also be made available for each GISFish publication record in which scientific names of plants and animals are mentioned.
