Hooking Into Fish Facts: Internet Resources in Marine Fisheries

Laurel Duda
Science Reference Librarian
MBL/WHOI Library
Woods Hole, MA 02543

Like many research disciplines, marine fisheries are viewed from numerous angles of inquiry. This report of annotated Internet resources highlights sites where users can net information ranging from publications and government regulations to various societies and careers. Although this list is only a sampling, with just a small amount of bait many of the resources listed here will lead to others. So for those who are tired of "trolling" the World Wide Web here are some tips on where to drop line and catch some BIG fish information.

Library Online Public Access Catalogs (OPACs)

Many library collections are now accessible via the web or telnet. OPACs provide the ability to identify monographs and serials through subject, author, title and keyword searching. Often the library web sites also provide access to databases, electronic journals, and useful general reference resources. Those listed here support major collections in marine fisheries.

Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL)/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Library

The MBL, with greater than a century of history, houses one of the largest marine and biomedical library collections in the world. The library provides collection access and services to five local research institutions. The Mariner online catalog, supported by Endeavor software, allows searchable access to over 200,000 volumes, including more than 5,000 serial publication titles. The online catalog also provides access to the MBL Special Collections, the WHOI Archives, the WHOI Data and Document Libraries, the Northeast Fisheries Science Center Library and a large image collection of scientific instruments, fish, and ALVIN dive images. One nice attribute of this system is that records are hot-linked to electronic resources where available.

As the saying goes "There are many fish in the sea," and it can certainly be applied to the number of internet sites on "Fish in the Sea." When evaluating new found sites it is important to apply the same criteria used when choosing print resource materials: accuracy, scope, relevancy, currency, authority and presentation.
