Database of the widely distributed data for freshwater fish occurrences of the countries of the Western Balkans (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia). These data are actually hidden in databases of national fisheries institutes, databases of regional fish collections and as well in grey literature (about 700 references). These databases and literature resources will be collected together, and the records will be georeferenced and organized into one database (using Artedian http://artedi.nrm.se/fishbase_se/software/artedian/).

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 10,007 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
