3 ▶ Norges Fiskeristyrelse established in 1900 Became the Directorate of Fisheries in 1906 A staff of 20 involved in research, two of whom were scientists In 1989, the Institute of Marine Research was separated from the Directorate of Fisheries to ensure the independence of scientific advises

4 ▶ Today: Norway's largest centre for marine research Other positions Research Students26,9 Post-doctoral researchers18,8 Associate Chief Scientists2,0 Cleaning Personnel5,5 Apprentices4,4 Sum57,6 MANLABOUR YEARS: 2007 BergenTromsøFlødevigenMatreAustevoll Co- operation Research Vessels Dept.

Dannevig195 Dr. Fridtjof Nansen311 Hans Brattström231 Fangst188 Jan Mayen71 Chartered vessels999 Total2 909 Our most important tools for collecting data on the ecosystem ▶ The research vessels

7 ▶ Organisation

8 ▶ Research and advisory for the ecosystems Establish knowledge as a basis for the management of the marine resources and environment in: • The Barents Sea • The Norwegian Sea • The North Sea • The coastal zone • Aquaculture

9 ▶ Some of our focus areas •CLIMATE – FISH PROGRAMME Predict climate change and study its impact on production, distribution and behaviour of marine organisms. •TROPHIC INTERACTIONS distribution of and interaction between species in the marine ecosystems • MARINE ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY chemical pollution •OCEANOGRAPHY physical and climatic processes that influence marine ecosystems •THE NORWEGIAN MARINE DATA CENTRE a national repository and dissemination facility for marine data

10 ▶ Examples of data collected •ENVIRONMENTAL DATA Temperature, salinity, density, currents, nutrients, plankton, chemical contamination • FISH DATA stock monitoring, recruitment, growth, behaviour, distribution • BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY DATA mapping of seafloor (MAREANO), biodiversity (coral reefs), introduced species

11 ▶ Data stewardship: Operational data – Fixed coastal stations

12 ▶ Data stewardship: Operational data - Termosalinograph

13 ▶ Data stewardship: Operational data – Climatological transects

14 ▶ Data stewardship: Operational data – Buoys - Presentation

15 ▶ Operational data – Research vessels - ARGO floats

17 ▶ Operational data – Research vessels – ARGO floats

18 ▶ Ecosystem survey in the Barents Sea February – March 2008

19 ▶ Cruise metadata – Search

20 ▶ Special databases - Nutrients

21 •Catch data •Oceanographic data •Zooplankton data •Nutrients data •Acoustic data ▶ TINDOR The INtegrated Database for Ocean Research

22 ▶ MAREANO Portal The MAREANO project maps depth, sediments and biodiversity in Norwegian waters in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Norway and the Norwegian Hydrographic Survey Results are presented as maps on

23 ▶ Web Map Services •NMD Develops and monitors –MAREANO portal (ArcIMS) –Fish distribution maps (ArcIMS) –Sea mammals (ArcIMS) –SONATE - FFI/MRDB (MapServer) •ARTSDATABANKEN –GBIF data node
