The Working Group on Biodiversity Science (WGBIODIV) gathers experts on areas of the marine benthic and pelagic food web components.


The group aims to make biodiversity an integral part of ICES work, especially given the requirements of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).

Its work includes exploring the potential of theoretical concepts to develop new biodiversity indicators for benthos, fish, and plankton.

WGBIODIV s work can be linked to the work of other ecology expert groups – for example the Benthic Ecology Working Group (BEWG) and the Working Group on Zooplankton Ecology (WGZE) and survey groups such as the Working Group on Beam Trawl Surveys (WGBEAM) and the International Bottom Trawl Survey Working Group (IBTSWG).​
