  • Welcome

    The Bering Region Ocean Data Sharing Initiative is a collaborative project funded by a White House initiative to increase sharing of ocean data. Our main goals are to:

      • Increase regional data sharing among federal, state, community and private sector partners
      • Provide needed information for stakeholder response to rapid ecosystem change in the Bering Sea
      • Support agency management & community decision-making, and
        Enhance economic opportunities
