European Seabirds At Sea

Unfortunately the abstract isn't available in English yet.


In 2022, INBO migrated the ESAS database (formerly hosted at JNCC) to ICES Data Centre. This migration was carried out in the outflow of a WOZEP project intended to revitalise the ESAS database. In the process the database was subjected to a thorough revision, including a revised data model and substantial data quality control. At the moment of writing (09/01/2023), the database hosts data supplied by 14 institutes from 7 countries, and includes almost 2.7 million observations of birds and marine mammals.
