Description
MASDEA was a biogeographic/taxonomic database of marine species in the Western Indian Ocean/East Africa. The database was originally developed by Edward Vanden Berghe while working as project manager of the RECOSCIX-WIO project in Mombasa, and was later maintained as a collaborative venture between the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute and VLIZ. MASDEA has now been superseded by the African Register of Marine Species (AfReMaS). more
