In this project, a consortium of 21 government agencies and research institutes with national and international expertise in marine biological data monitoring and data management will build further upon the work carried out during the biological preparatory action of EMODnet and will deliver data, metadata and data products of surveys in the water column and on the sea bed from phytoplankton, zooplankton, angiosperms, marcoalgae, benthos, birds, mammals, reptiles and fish occurring in European marine waters. The EMODnet biological data portal will provide access to different thematic databases and to several long-term national marine biological monitoring datasets from all European regional seas. We will identify and focus on biological data types, species, species attributes, sampling methods and biological indicators to support the variety of legislations, and will create biological data products to support environmental legislations including the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
