To establish a modern, comprehensive checklist and database of the marine, benthic macrofauna in Greenland territorial waters from the shore to 1000 m depth Main gaps: Lack of recent field monitoring programmes. Missing data from the northernmost and very few data from south-eastern coastal stretches and adjoining marine territory. Too few recent fauna monitoring programs in the whole area.
The survey uses literature data as its primary source, supplemented with unpublished data from members of the network. By continuing to monitor new data as they become available the database will reflect changes in the fauna.
This is expected at some point in the future to be placed with DanBIF and GBIF. Networks: Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) (GBIF)
