Fish Names Search Tool

We know how difficult it can be to select the correct TRACES entry and to match the common names on the commercial documents with the Scientific Names on the Health Certificate.  Further information about completing TRACES is available here.  To make this easier for you and to help you get this right  we have developed a search tool to assist you. 

The Search Tool is linked to a database of fish species.  It is not an exhaustive list of all the world's fish species, but it does cover over 2000 species including all of the fish species that have been imported through Felixstowe in the last 12 months.  We will do our best to keep the database up to date and will add species and make amendments based on TRACES updates.  However, if you are searching for a species that you know will be imported through Felixstowe and cannot find it in our database, please use this form to submit the information to us for investigation.

You can use the buttons below to view the list alphabetically.


Search tool

Enter your search word (Scientific Name or Common Name) and the tool will try to find a match for it in our database.  You can enter the whole name or part.  (To find the corresponding TRACES entry please search for the exact scientific name shown on the health certificate first.)
