|CCAMLR||Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources||Hosts data that underpin decisions about the management of Antarctic marine life|
|GBIF||Global Biodiversity Information Facility||Global repository for biodiversity data|
|KRILLBASE||ICED (Integrating Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics) Krill and Salps database||A composite dataset of krill and salp observations from around Antarctica|
|LTER||Long Term Ecological Research Network||US-based network of long-term ecological research sites|
|Ocean Ecology Science Research Portal||Links to satellite data from the SEAWiFS, MODIS Aqua and Terra, MERIS, OCTS, CZCS and Aquarius platforms|
