Summary
Abstract: The CSIRO Marine Data Warehouse is a repository for biological and other marine
survey data collected by CSIRO Division of Marine and Atmospheric Research
(CMAR), Australia. It contains field (observational) data from numerous
research trawls and other fisheries-related surveys conducted in waters around
Australia by the Division since the late 1970s. At time of writing (April 2006)
the database is serving approximately 106,000 species-level records to OBIS.
Multiple species records and those of taxa not identified to species level are
presently excluded. Associated data include species counts and/or weights in
some but not all cases.
