Published Sources

Libraries are products of independent research. Each eFish BioVoucher contain raw NGS sequences used and published on scientific, peer-reviewed publications.

Creative Commons Licence

The eFish database as itself and the voucher specimens in it, are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution/non-commercial, no derivative works.

Secured Storage

NGS libraries are stored at dedicated servers inside The University of Queensland. However, each library is password encrypted and contains final user tracers.

NGS tecnology

State of the art next generation sequencing technology (Ion Torrent and Illumina) is used on each project ensuring coverage, reliability and replicability.

What is eFish?

eFish is a repository of genetic information available to the public domain and contains freely-licensed research content to everyone. It acts as a common repository for the various projects of The University of Queensland and the Molecular Fisheries Laboratory. The repository is created and maintained not by paid curators, but by researchers at the Molecular Fisheries Laboratory.

Launched on February 2015,eFish currently hosts more than 120 million sequences.


A variety of marine fishes are available as result of different research project and publications.

Unlike traditional data repositories, eFish is free. Everyone is allowed to copy, use and modify any files here freely as long as you follow the terms specified by the 'data disclosure agreement'; this means crediting the source and author(s) appropriately and releasing further research under the same freedom to others. Also, you can contribute with eFish through the inclusion of your papers and NGS datasets. More info is available on the forms below.
