According to the materials of 2000–2004, in littoral of the gulf Arguin (at the coast of Northern Africa) dwell 91 fish species. Fish young, accumulating 97.9–99.7% of ichthyofauna, endure main cycle of development in the zone of littoral, use it for pasture and as a shelter. Five types of littoral are distinguished in the gulf. Ichthyofauna composition of different littoral types has significant similarity, but differs essentially from ichthyofauna of open ocean littoral. The role of the gulf Arguin, taking into consideration its dimensions, is unique in reproduction, biodiversity maintenance and existence of numerous fish species (including fishery species) of Northern Africa.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 91 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
