About Aquatic GAP

The concept of aquatic gap is to identify the gaps in conservation of aquatic species or communities in order to provide managers, planners, scientists, and policy makersFish Shocking with the information they need to make better-informed decisions. The gap analysis program uses a bottom up approach drawing upon mutual cooperation of natural resource institutions (state, federal, and private) within each State or region. A geographic information system (GIS) and relational database are used as tools for gap analysis to map, summarize, characterize, and assess the status of aquatic biodiversity and associated conservation gaps for a given region.
