The ID tools reviewed are: use of scientific experts (taxonomists) and local experts, taxonomic reference collections, image recognition systems, field guides based on dichotomous keys- interactive electronic keys (e.g. IPOFIS), morphometrics (e.g. IPez), scale and otolith morphology, genetic methods (Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and Barcode (BOL)) and Hydroacoustics.
