The big oceanic survey

Hi folks.
I think many of you may know about the international scientific survey of the world's fish stocks, but all new species are being posted on the German site: www.fishbase.org
Absolutely, right now, go and check out this site!
It's mind-blowing. For instance, if you page down once from the top, you can search by country/region for freshwater fish. Try selecting "Indonesia" and checking the freshwater search criteria - great, astonishingly thorough reference to all known (and new) freshwater fishes! All the loaches are listed (in the site, not Indonesia - though lots appear there.)
Way too much information to absorb
