Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Objective

EMODnet biology

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) Biology is an ambitious and exciting initiative to assemble collected marine data -  which may otherwise remain hidden and unavailable -  and to provide widespread open access to these data via a single platform www.emodnet-biology.eu

Targeted Species & Habitats

About this project

EMODnet biology
EMODnet Biology provides free access to data on the temporal and spatial distribution of marine species and species traits from all European regional seas. EMODnet Biology recognises that everyone collecting data and information on the distribution of marine and brackish water species in Europe can make a valuable contribution to EMODnet. Citizen science initiatives have already provided useful data to EMODnet and more are encouraged to do so by following the simple instructions available here. These efforts will support EMODnet by adding the to the wealth of publicly available biodiversity data already available at www.emodnet.eu.

How can you contribute?

EMODnet Biology

Any group can submit information to EMODnet Biology – not just scientists or researchers!

If you would like to submit data to this project, speak directly with the coordinator Simon Claus at bio@emodnet.eu to discuss how best to help them, or send him directly the type of sightings you would be willing to deliver, including at least the following information:

  • Date and time
  • Species
  • Pictures to confirm the sighting
  • GPS location
  • Maximum and minimum depth (if diving)
  • Number of individuals if possible

All the information (especially species) gets validated by experts and is then displayed on a publicly available map.
