Data e-Infrastructure Initiative for Fisheries Management and Conservation of Marine Living Resources

Abstract:

iMarine is an open and collaborative initiative that will establish a data infrastructure to support the Ecosystem Approach to fisheries management and conservation of marine living resources. iMarine empowers practitioners and policy makers from multiple scientific fields such as fisheries, biodiversity and ocean observation. The iMarine infrastructure will ensure that otherwise dispersed and heterogeneous data is available to all stakeholder communities through a shared virtual environment that brings together multidisciplinary data sources, supports cross-cutting scientific analysis, and assists communication.
