An American professor of zoology has set out to digitalise all the world’s fish species in a unique attempt to create a 3D online database of aquatic fauna, Engineering & Technology Magazine reports.
   
The digital catalogue will be freely available for download by anyone, featuring high-resolution models for nature lovers and scientists to explore. The catalogue, to eventually comprise all 25,000 fish species known to live on the planet, could also be used to 3D-print life-sized replicas of the fish species.
