About WISE Marine

Marine Information System for Europe

WISE-Marine is a portal and infrastructure for sharing information with the marine community on the marine environment at European level. Focusing on the state of the marine environment at the European scale, WISE Marine shows the information and knowledge gathered or derived through the MSFD process and other key marine policy drivers. WISE-Marine fits in the landscape of existing Directive reporting and associated portals, European Data infrastructures and Regional Sea Convention’s – all of which are heavily dependent on data and information coming from EU member states.
