ICES Working Group on Operational Oceanographic Products for Fisheries and Environment (WGOOFE) co-develops fit for purpose oceanographic and ocean products for the ecosystem assessment, fisheries and aquaculture applications.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Ocean data supplied by operational models, in-situ observational platforms and satellites has reached a mature state and tailored services based on this information are in high demand. WGOOFE assists ICES with the navigation through the plethora of online databases by engaging directly with ICES EGs requiring access to and tailor-made operational oceanographic datasets used for the purpose of the integrated ecosystem and fisheries assessment and for the aquaculture applications.

The group develops showcase applications of operational oceanographic products in ICES assessments, produces fact sheets with the oceanographic products and indicators and participates in ICES workshops where oceanographic products are in demand. Together with another oceanographic EG, namely Working Group on Oceanic Hydrography (WGOH), WGOOFE promotes the uptake of the oceanographic products in ICES ecosystem and fisheries assessments and contributes towards bridging the gap that exists between the oceanography and these assessments.
