Fish IBI Calculator

The Index of Biotic Integrity (Fish IBI) is a set of biological metrics used to assess the richness of fish species by comparing the species present at a site to the species that would be expected in the absence of human impacts.

This calculator was developed to assist researchers in calculating Fish IBI scores by taking them through clear steps to align the uploaded data and providing an elegant report, following the brand guidelines of the Ministry of the Environment.
