Because the content and the data of the Fish Database of Taiwan is rich and correct, the data is keeping to expand and update as well as fully open to public access, this website is quite popular and well reputed. Although the database leader Dr. Shao retired in last August, he still is working in several positions on fish research, education and conservation including conducting several fish monitoring projects and amendment of the database. He is planning to upload the ecological distribution data of fish eggs and larval fishes around Taiwan which have been verified by DNA barcoding technique and accumulated for many years. His two assistants who are in charge of the contents and information technology of this database have been transferred to ASCDC from BRCAS and continue assisting this work. The budget and IT required every year will be supported by ASCDC as well. Besides, Dr. Shao has arranged with several young PIs to take over not only the Fish Database of Taiwan, but also several other integrated databases of biodiversity in Taiwan to assure long-term management of these databases. As to the data collection and quality assurance, the past model is kept to be adopted, i.e. only authorized fish experts or taxonomists are able to edit the Fish Database of Taiwan.
