On this page you will find links to databases that contain data relevant to the Marine Spatial Planning Process. In the future this will include a database with data related specifically to the EEZ of Suriname.

OBIS Seamap, Ocean Biogeographic Information System Spatial Ecological Analysis of Megavertebrate Populations, is a spatially referenced online database, aggregating marine mammal, seabird, sea turtle and ray & shark observation data from across the globe is a database maintained by Duke University. This link refers to a dataset from French Guiana.

OBSENMER is a collaboration of 34 institutions to map citizen science observation at sea. French Guiana is also entering data in this tool, and the intention is to use this also for observations in Suriname. 

The Conservation Planning Database contains currently 163 peer-reviewed papers on 155 marine systematic conservation planning exercises from around the world.
