EU-FP6 Funded Marine Project Reports


Update and revision of the ICES Atlas of North Sea fishes: a web-based application

Status: Completed (October 2005)
Coordinator:  Netherlands Institute for Fisheries Research - RIVO (now IMARES)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ICES-FishMap was the first phase of a potential two-phase programme.

  • This first phase updated and published on-line the existing Atlas of North Sea Fishes: maps showing (seasonal) distributions, changes in abundance over the past decades, etc.
  • The most important commercial species were included, in addition to some species of particular ecological interest
  • The on-line atlas contains interactive maps that will allow direct comparison of distributions between years​

​​​IMARES was established in 2006, as a result of the merger of​​ RIVO (the Netherlands Institute for Fisheries Research), elements of Alterra and the Department of Ecological Risks within the TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research).​​
