The Demonstrator "Fish, a matter of scales" is jointly developed by the information and knowledge management Team (NFISI) of the Fisheries Division, Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the French National Research Institute and the Institute of Computer Science at FORTH.
The objective is to deliver a scalable and robust open data portal for fisheries data in EU waters and beyond, with a focus on a Global Tuna Atlas and a Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF).
Hence, the demonstrator will expand the existing VREs of FAO Tuna Atlas and GRSF, with more features for data analysis using indicators, interactive maps, etc., for the former, and new as well as expanded information for approved status assessments of fisheries, including those from other sources and demonstrators for the latter.
Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF) is a Virtual Research Environment 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.
