Project

Atlas of sea fishes of the northern European shelf

The collection of research data by vessel costs a fortune, but the data are poorly used.

The goal of this project is to publish a fish atlas, initially as a book, later the information should become available through the internet.

Activities are: 

  • Gathering all necessary survey data 
  • Extensive data quality checks 
  • Defining the general set-up of the species accounts 
  • Contacting co-authors for species accounts 
  • Writing  
  • Collecting (photo)material for illustrations 
  • Review of contributions 
  • Editing the manuscript 
  • Contacts with publishers.
  • The result is a manuscript of about 500 pages, to be published in 2013.
