EMODnet Biology Phase III has officially started on the 19th April 2017. The Kick-off meeting took place in Oostende on the 25 and 26 of April. Phase III is composed of 22 partners plus 2 sub-contractors covering all Europeans Seas. At least 4 million new records are expected to be added for this third phase. Different ecological modelling techniques will be used to provide data products showing trends of European marine life.
