The demonstrator will improve data management and analytic capabilities for fisheries by:
Expanding the Virtual Lab for the FAO Tuna Atlas (tuna and billfish catch data) into the Fisheries Atlas: a global vertically integrated toolset that will manage public fisheries statistical data from ingestion, through harmonization, to publication. The Atlas should have features for data analysis using state-of-the-art assessment models.
Expanding the Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF) Virtual Lab that will contain the results of approved status assessments of fisheries, including those from the Fisheries Atlas. GRSF is considered as the key instrument of global fish stock status monitoring and traceability and it aims to be the first global record with uniquely identified stocks and fisheries by consolidating content that exists in various sources.
Finally it will provide an option for synergy with the thematic Food Cloud initiative by development of exposure of relevant information on fish food and nutrition through the GRSF, either as static information, or dynamically loaded.
The European Commission is launching a Green Deal call for research proposals in September, and one of the proposed topics is a digital ocean. Stakeholders and the public are invited to help shape the call through an online survey.
Let's discover the "Marine Environmental Indicators" Blue-Cloud demonstrator, which will develop an online service with an associated cloud-based analytical computing framework, and a dedicated web interface to provide and display indicators and information on the environmental quality of the ocean.
