Description: VaFWIS is based on fish and wildlife literature for all native and naturalized species found in Virginia. Reviews performed by Department of Game and Inland Fisheries biologists are summarized and indexed in an agency database called Biota of Virginia (BOVA). You will find species characteristics, habitat groupings, locations of occurrence, and management practices described within BOVA. Registered subscribers have access to additional analysis used for scientific research, land management, permit review, and other regulatory review of projects. There is no charge to government agencies, non-profit organizations or public school systems.
