Dear FishBase Guestbook users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making our guestbook unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, may we clarify that the Guestbook is where you may express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work which donít necessarily need a response. If you wish to make technical comments and inquiries that needs scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wishes to share their knowledge on the subject at hand, then you may use our Fish Forum for that purpose.

Our very best regards.

To: FishBase, I was wondering if you could help me out. I'm just trying to find imformation concering species known as Jacks? The imformation is for myself just to use for indentificaion needs. Would like to find a (chart in full color) concerning all these species. Caranx Igonobilis, Aleectis Ciliaris, Sexfascitus, Lugubris, Uraspis Helvola, Melampygus, Gnathanodon Specious, Carangoides Ferdau, Caragoides Orthogrammus, Seriola Dumerili, Pseudocaranx Dentex etc. I find these species very powerful creature of the sea. I contacted Division of Aquatic Resources, in Hawaii all they have is a black/white indentificaion sheet concerning these species. Trying to find imformation concering all the history of the jacks from the islands to wherever they migrate to. Any imformation would gladly do! Thanks

Doing reserch, observation and study on the Snake head species "Channa Marulius" or Fishbase name: "Great Snakehead". I'm currently working and residing in China and planning to search for this species here in Southern China where this species occurs. Personally, I'm an active Snakehead sports angler.

I have used your site for a couple of years to help ID photographs in our collection and to provide our guides with natural history information. Recently I have been asked for a password to search your database. Have you changed your policy?
