To query the RLS database by region or species (for example) and download raw abundance data, follow the Access Survey Data link below.
The link will take you to the RLS data portal where data from fish, mobile invertebrates and cryptic fish surveys, as well as habitat quadrats, are available on separate layers.
Please Note: The RLS data portal is no longer operational. All RLS records are now housed in the AODN data portal. To access the RLS data layers, type "Reef Life Survey" in the keyword search bar on the bottom-left navigation pane. From there you will be able to refine your search within the available RLS-specific data layers.
