The Open Sea Lab Legacy:
What can you create with marine open data?

We are delighted to announce the release of the film and report of Open Sea Lab II!  We hope that these outputs reflect the openness, creativity and dynamism that was apparent during the three-day event in Gent this September.

But the creativity does not have to end with Open Sea Lab. The wealth of resources (data, products, services, tutorials) provided by EMODnet, CMEMS, ICES and Global Fishing Watch at this year’s Open Sea Lab remain available at

So until Open Sea Lab III provides another opportunity to come together, share ideas and develop even better solutions, we invite you to explore these resources and see what you can create; for your work, your business, your study or even just for fun. They are open, free and there for you to use. 

We only ask that you tell us what you can (or can’t) do with our open marine data. And remember, ‘sharing is caring’, so spread the word!
