A checklist of marine Chinese species, compiled by taxonomic experts and based on peer-reviewed literature. more

The geographic scope of ChaRMS is the marine species occurring in the Exclusive Economic Zone of China.
The starting point of this database was the checklist of biota of seas around China (Liu 2008). Liu (2008) described the geographic area as "The seas surrounding China mainland and the southern islands and reefs, situated at the low and mid-latitude of the planet, cover a great range across 37 latitudes (3°30′-40°50′N) of tropical, subtropical and warm-temperate climate zones, and with widest continental shelf in the east.
