Datasets from Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS)

Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS), launched as a data center of the Census of Marine Life and the parent node of OBIS-SEAMAP, collects biogeographic data of any forms of marine life to document the ocean's diversity, distribution and abundance of life.

The data of marine mammals, seabirds, and sea turtles from OBIS (that were not originated from OBIS-SEAMAP) are imported into OBIS-SEAMAP.
