Sampling Methods

The data on fish registration was collected by the authors on their own. Some of the collected fish specimens were transfered to collections of The National Museum of Natural History of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

Study Extent This dataset consists of a number of points where fish species were registered on the territory of Ukraine from 2001 to 2021.
Quality Control Authors of the dataset are fully responsible for the correctness of species identifications, information on organisms' quantity and georeferencing.

Method step description:

  1. Collecting of the material.
  2. Identification of the registered specimens (definition to species level).
  3. Georeferencing.
