OBIS depth range resource

Last updated over 2 years ago

Explore data on locations of marine animals and plants. Obtain data tables and maps and predict distributions using environmental information. Note: the information on depth ranges was not verified by taxonomic specialists, or by the OBIS project. Specifically, we are aware of some instances where data providers have substitutes a missing value with '0' - resulting in erroneous surface records for deep-sea species. Please do leave a comment on a suspect depth range displayed on EOL or contact the data management team at to report these and any other issues you would come across. Visit the OBIS web site at if you want to check on doubtful records; it is possible to look on a combination of depth and taxonomy, and thus to identify individual offending records.
