Completed Projects

Falkland Islands Marine Biodiversity Archive

FIMBAr is a collaboration between the Marine Biological Association (MBA), the Shallow Marine Surveys Group (SMSG) and the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI). The project to establish a marine biodiversity data archive for the Falkland Islands is supported by a Darwin Challenge Fund Award and runs until February 2013. By collating information from recent surveys and historical datasets it is hoped to establish a baseline dataset that can be used to map species distributions and inform future management of the marine environment.
