Aquatic life

Important considerations:

While aquatic life is most decidedly not a taxonomic ranking, from a conservation perspective there are some practical advantages to focusing on aquatic life as a distinct grouping.

If you are looking for information on a particular species or taxon, your best starting point is likely to be either the Catalogue of Life (CoL) or one of the databases listed below.
