Fishery Atlas is jointly developed by the Information and knowledge management Team (NFISI) of the Fisheries Division, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the French National Research Institute (IRD).
This Virtual Laboratory is part of Blue-Cloud demonstrator "Fish, a matter of scales", 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), not part of this Virtual Laboratory.
This Virtual Laboratory expands on the Virtual Lab for the FAO Tuna Atlas (tuna and billfish catch data): a global vertically integrated toolset that will manage public fisheries statistical data from ingestion, through harmonisation, to publication.
The demonstrator will improve data management and analytic capabilities for fisheries by qn online overview of harmonised time-series of catch and effort accessible through a map Viewer, ISO/OGC metadata and data services, analytical and reporting tools, and R Shiny, Jupyter and Markdown reporting services.

Search reliable and fact-checked content through the interactive Fisheries Atlas powered by Blue Cloud.
Explore all oceans and regions of the world with this in-depth resource, with features ranging from global fisheries maps, popup statistics and overviews, high resolution bathymetry, aggregate maps about major world fisheries. Updated for 2019, this atlas provides a complete overview of FAO statistics that can be shown in combination with countless CMEMS and EMODNet layers in unprecendented detail and precision.
It offers - Global thematic maps showing the Earth's fisheries, their production and trade, as well as fish distributions maps and ecological zones.
With added maps created through the full benefit of CMEMS satellite products based on Copernicus data, measurements and other modern and accurate analytical techniques to put fisheries in the environmental perspective. Show trends in Fisheries indicators towards achieving the SDG's
