Abstract: This WGAGFM[1] ToR was embarked on in 2007 pointing out that worldwide numerous studies have been carried out covering many aspects to fish and fisheries genetics. These studies have produced a great wealth of data with potential value for future applications (such as in fisheries management), but could also serve as a fundament for new research projects. However, after the conclusion of research projects, the dispersal of generated data leads to a high risk of data-loss and greatly impedes a more coherent approach to genetic fish and fisheries research. The WAGFM addressed this issue by proposing the development of a meta-database assembling and cataloguing existing data in the field of fish and shellfish genetics, and ensuring its accessibility to the research community. We argued that such an approach could efficiently counteract the current trend of data dispersal, thereby promoting research coherence, enhancing research progress, and facilitating the translation of results from fundamental research to applications in the fisheries and the aquaculture sector.
