What we do

Marine data

ICES has a well-established Data Centre, which manages a number of large dataset collections related to the marine environment.

The majority of data – covering the Northeast Atlantic, Baltic Sea, Greenland Sea, and Norwegian Sea – originate from national institutes that are part of the ICES network.

The ICES Data Centre provides marine data services to ICES member countries, expert groups, world data centres, regional seas conventions (HELCOM and OSPAR), the European Environment Agency (EEA), Eurostat, and various other European projects and biodiversity portals.

Dataset collections are organized around specific thematic data portals as well as an overarching data warehouse. The current dataset portals provided by ICES are:

  • Biological community;
  • Contaminants and biological effects;
  • Eggs and larvae;
  • Fish predation (stomach contents);
  • Fish trawl survey;
  • Historical plankton;
  • Ocean physics and chemistry.
