The Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA) Bibliographic Database is the principal information product produced through the cooperative efforts of the international network of ASFA Partners and a commercial ASFA Publisher. The database contains more than 2,500,000 bibliographic references to the world's aquatic science literature accessioned since 1971.

Access to the ASFA Bibliographic Database, by the general public, is available through subscription from the commercial ASFA Publisher ProQuest or from one of the ProQuest licensed providers (contact ProQuest for a list)

By agreement, access to the ASFA Bibliographic Database by participating ASFA Partner institutes/organizations is free. Free access to the database is considered as an entitlement (or recompense) for the ASFA Partner's efforts and expense in preparing and submitting references for inclusion in the ASFA database.

There is also an FAO/ASFA project initiative underway to provide free access to the ASFA Bibliographic Database to selected institutes in Low Income Food Deficit Countries (LIFDC).
