Lead Organization: Flanders Marine Institute VLIZ, Belgium
ICES contact: Neil Holdsworth, Head of Data and Information
The project aims to further the development of an operational service where marine biological data, as well as the observations on which these data products were built, are made freely available.
The project focuses on biological data types of marine species including phytoplankton, zooplankton, angiosperms, macro-algae, invertebrate bottom fauna, birds, mammals, reptiles and fish, and will create biological data products to support environmental legislations including the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
ICES is a major
provider of biological observations and collaborates on data
products. ICES also contributes to data
standards and harmonization.
This project has received funding from the European Commission's European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
