There are three species under the Toothcarp EEP:
1. Valencia toothcarp (Valencia hispanica)
2. Corfu toothcarp (Valencia letourneuxi)
3. Valencia robertae
This direct conservation role contemplates the possibility to maintain long-term ex situ populations to preserve options for the future. The ex situ populations are a potential future source to build up (long-term) populations for reintroductions.
This role would focus on different types of research such as disease management, population management, and reproductive biology
