OBIS allows users to search marine species datasets from all of the world's oceans.

With our evolving OBIS database repository, users can identify biodiversity hotspots and large-scale ecological patterns, analyze dispersions of species over time and space, and plot species' locations with temperature, salinity, and depth.
To search the database, please select the "Search Data" option in the toolbar above.
If you want to see overview maps of OBIS content and derived information, select "Maps".
