The Vision Ahead

To synthesize and synergize ecological research in the Gulf ecosystem to address questions on taxonomic and spatial scales larger than now possible.

Goals and Objectives

  • Research, locate, evaluate, and obtain copies of all credible references and resources on estuarine and marine species interactions in the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem
  • Create a publicly accessible species interaction database for the Gulf of Mexico providing a platform encouraging data sharing and collaborations around the Gulf
  • Provide a resource enabling scientists from multiple disciplines to ask questions and seek answers previously not possible
  • Create or provide access to computational tools for visualizing and analyzing the data
