PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BioFresh was the first EU-funded project that focused on the status, trends, pressures and conservation priorities of freshwater biodiversity and its related ecosystem services. Its outcome supports EU biodiversity and water related policies that aim to integrate the protection of freshwater life and the services it provides for human welfare. BioFresh has build a freshwater biodiversity information platform to bring together, and make publicly available, the vast amount of information on freshwater biodiversity currently scattered among a wide range of databases. Geo-referenced distribution data of freshwater fishes of Serbia and Montenegro from about 200 papers & 150 fisheries management plans = 3-4 thousands sampling sites.
