This is new version of the original CAAB application which is also deployed on RV Investigator. Features of this application include the FISHMAP tool showing the expected distribution of fish, distribution map from CSIRO catch records, standardised names of commercial fish and plants from the AS5300 and AS5301 standards, selected images (particularly of invertebrates).

CAAB encodes taxonomic identifiers for Australian marine organisms. Past MNF voyages contribute many new species and coverage information to the 44,000 entries in the master species database.
