The Fishbase API returns fish data provided by rOpenSci, a non-profit that advocates for sharing of scientific data. With this API, developers can implement data about fish ecology, ecosystems, fecundity, food items, maturity, population growth, reproduction, species, and swimming. The REST API uses backend SQL and it queries data in JSON format. Learn more at Fishbase.
