Fish spawning aggregations are significant events that support many fisheries globally. SCRFA’s mission is to support and promote the stewardship of these events through science-based conservation and management. Their website provides information explaining the importance of aggregations for fishes, fisheries and ecosystems, and information about aggregating species. They maintain a database which contains over 1,000 fish aggregation records from around the world. It holds extensive information on spatial and temporal characteristics and the current status according published and unpublished literature, natural history accounts, anecdotal information (including interview) and field research. The database establishes a basis for planning, education and research, and for identifying conservation and management needs.
