DNV-GL will publish marine benthic fauna data from the Norwegian continental shelf. The project will develop APIs to enable efficient data flow to GBIF. The database is the data repository for environmental impact and biodiversity monitoring data from a number of sub-contractors and is funded by the Norwegian Oil and Gas and the Norwegian Environment Agency.
Akvaplan-niva will publish marine zooplankton from the North Atlantic and the Arctic, and fresh-water species from the north of Norway. Species data originates from different projects between 2010 and the present, including approximately 90 000 identified samples and another 130 000 samples pending treatment.
