The soft version of AquaDocs is launched.

AquaDocs is an open access repository covering the natural marine, estuarine /brackish and freshwater environments. It includes all aspects of the science, technology, management and conservation of these environments, their organisms and resources, and the economic, sociological and legal aspects.

AquaDocs was developed in 2021 by merging content from two former repositories, OceanDocs and Aquatic Commons, and is used by researchers, students, information and data managers, government officials and policy-makers.

AquaDocs offers the following benefits:

  • To make aquatic and marine science information FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) for all. 
  • To offer a repository platform to those organizations and individuals without the infrastructure to support their own.
  • To provide a capacity development opportunity for the IODE and IAMSLIC Communities

AquaDocs is funded and managed by the UNESCO/IOC InternationaI Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) and the International Marine and Aquatic Sciences Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) with support from the FAO Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts. It is hosted by Atmire using the Open Repository software.

Secrets of the Black Sea

Created on Wednesday, December 23, 2020 - 10:49


Popular science book "Secrets of the Black Sea"  was presented and promoted by the Institute of  Marine Biology of the NAS. The book was  published thanks to the support of international  project EU/UNDP “Improving Environmental  Monitoring in the Black Sea – Selected Measures  (EMBLAS-Plus)”. The idea of the book belongs to  Dr. Boris Aleksandrov, Director of the Institute  of  Marine Biology in Odessa, who was a partner  on the EMBLAS project. He tragically died in a  fire in winter 2019 and didn’t finish the book.  Through the joint effort of colleagues and  companions the idea was finally realized.

More about the book in the EURASLIC Newsletter

The book is availabe in Ukrainian, Russian and English.
