data collections - Internet - information services
During the sixth year of activity, the AdriaMed Project produced nine databases, available on line on through the AdriaMed web portal (www.faoadriamed.org), and focusing on specific relevant areas of interest for the Project or the countries around the Adriatic Sea. These databases were finalised to improve the availability of information related to the Adriatic Sea fisheries and its accessibility; open access is provided to the information, facilitating the dissemination of scientific materials published in and on the area. The end users of these archives are the researchers, scientists and decision makers who can access a unique system of information at regional level. This simple guide illustrates the main characteristics of each database available on the AdriaMed portal, as well as on CD Rom.
