The Aquatic Gap Analysis Project (GAP) focuses on species found in coastal and inland waters. The goal of Aquatic GAP is to evaluate aquatic biological diversity and habitats using spatial analysis and species distribution models to identify gaps in species protection or threats to habitats in order to work toward more effective conservation planning and prioritization.
Aquatic Gap Analysis Vision
The Aquatic Gap Analysis Project (AGAP) works to synthesize existing data and generate new data products to answer complex questions about aquatic species, their habitats and their conservation needs at multiple scales.
Aquatic Gap Analysis
AGAP is currently partnering on the development of national species distribution models for a couple hundred widely distribution fresh water fishes.
