Deep-sea benthic fauna collected during Ifremer cruises more

The Biocean database was designed to gather the extremely large volume of data collected from different deep-sea ecosystem studies conducted by Ifremer's department "Environnement Profond" and aims at facilitating ecosystem studies in the deep sea. It represents an important new resource for deep-sea ecologists and will have wide applications in biogeography, and biodiversity studies.
