Global Ocean Projects

The Ocean Tracking Network is a global aquatic animal tracking, data management, and partnership platform headquartered at Dalhousie University in Canada.

OTN and its partners are using electronic tags to track many keystone, commercially important, and endangered species at an international scale, across all ocean regions.

As a global animal movement data repository, OTNDC has as its mission the collection, aggregation, cross-referencing, preservation, and dissemination (both public and private) of aquatic telemetry data on behalf of the global network, and in collaboration with sibling aquatic telemetry data centres situated regionally. Furthermore, OTNDC is mandated to inform global biogeographical information systems, such as OBIS, with aquatic animal tracking data as it is eventually made publicly accessible under the terms of the OTN Data Policy.
