Documented in fb_tbl

#' Access a fishbase or sealifebase table
#' @param tbl table name, as it appears in the database. See [fb_tables()]
#' for a list.
#' @param collect should we return an in-memory table? Generally best to leave
#' as TRUE unless RAM is too limited.  A remote table can be used with most
#' dplyr functions (filter, select, joins, etc) to further refine.
#' @inheritParams fb_import
#' @export
#' @examplesIf interactive()
