One of the objectives of the BIOMARE project was to identify a network of Research Sites to provide a basis for long-term and large-scale marine biodiversity research in Europe.

Among the 100 European Marine Biodiversity Research Sites that provide the geographical skeleton for the implementation of large-scale long-term research in Europe, a small subset of Reference Sites was selected.

All the information about the BIOMARE sites is put into a fully searchable relational database and with a geographical interface which can be accessed here.

Deep-sea, ocean pelagic, experimental or extreme habitat sites, proposed during the MARBEF project will be added to this database.

More information is available on the BIOMARE website.
