Create a digital representation of the Ocean, Programme, Sustainably feed the global population

The Fisheries and Environmental Atlas will use Open Data and Open Science to support fisheries and ecosystems scientific monitoring.

The Atlas will include information from FAO fisheries country profiles (http://www.fao.org/fishery/countryprofiles/search/en), and data derived from a range of diverse technologies. It will include topical environmental maps and data for FAIR analysis. The Atlas will work hand-in-hand with countries and Regional Fishery Bodies (RFBs) to disseminate comprehensive Open Data pages on the state, impacts, and management of fisheries, which can enable countries progress towards SDGs and UN Decade targets.
