What is OzFishNet?

OzFishNet is a consortium of collection-based Australian ichthyologists formed to promote research, data access and other issues of mutual interest.

The group comprises leading ichthyologists based in Australian and international museums, CSIRO and several domestic and international universities. In essence OzFishNet is the virtual national fish museum of Australia.

This group formalises the traditionally good working relationship and cooperation among Australian fish systematists.

Working as a group provides the advantage of increased likelihood of support for fish research, especially taxonomic and biodiversity research on Australian fishes.
