Abstract: The value of creating a meta-database to catalogue species-specific data on fish and shellfish population genetics relevant to conservation and fisheries management was identified in the 2006 and 2007 ICES WGAGFM reports. These highlighted the in-creasing recognition of the importance of intraspecific genetic diversity, to fisheries character and abundance, and of the potential for using molecular genetic informa-tion in fish management and conservation to help achieve sustainable exploitation. Recognising this, the reports argued that there were considerable benefits that would be realised of having a public website for facilitating rapid accessibility to such data by the research community and stakeholders in support of advancing understanding and the application of this body of knowledge in support of fisheries management.
