The EU 5th Framework Concerted Action BIOMARE (2000- 2002) generated the idea of European Marine Biodiversity Sites (EMBS) - a selection of localities where marine biodiversity research will be focused in the coming years. MARBENA, another Shared Cost Activity of the EU, deals with the implementation of the BIOMARE research agenda. Two fjords located on Svalbard have been selected as EMBS - Hornsund for the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) and Kongsfjorden for Long-term Biodiversity Research (LTBR).
