Since the launch of the Aquatic Commons repository in July of 2007 both the deposits and downloads have increased steadily. From 27 documents, the repository has grown to 2,160 items in April 2009. In April, there were 6,096 downloads. Of the top 35 downloads, 26, or 75%, were classed as Aquaculture or Fisheries. These 26 items accounted for 1,320 downloads. Aquaculture Asia issues were heavily used. Browsing by Issuing Agency now indicates that we have publications from 44 organizations. Metadata is harvested by Avano, Google, Google Scholar, BASE, and OAIster.
