There are currently seven Sectors and 29 Subsectors."

Coastal and Marine Ecological Classification Standard

CMECS offers a way to organize and interpret data about the marine environment, and it provides a common platform for inter-relating data.

"Document ellaborat pel Grup EUROSION de l’Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals (UAB) el 16 de Març de 2004, en collaboració amb el Departament d’Infrastructura del Transport i del Territori (ETSECCPB – UPC). (...) Cada organització productora de dades geoespacials ha dissenyat models del món real conforme els seus propis criteris i necessitats. La temàtica d’aquests conjunts de dades ha de poder ser expresada en una sola paraula per tal de poder, posteriorment, utilitzar-la per a recuperar aquella informació.

World Register of Marine Species

"The aim of a World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. While highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature. The content of WoRMS is controlled by taxonomic experts, not by database managers.
