The Coelacanth in FishBase
R.B. Reyes, Jr.

The recent discovery of a coelacanth population in Indonesia has renewed interest in this living fossil. Until this discovery, the coelacanth was thought to occur only in the Comoro archipelago. Recent studies show that the species is highly vulnerable to extinction. This paper presents a summary of the information available on the coelacanth in FishBase. It also highlights the utility of FishBase, both as a repository of scientific information and as an analytical tool for research.
