The Great Lakes Fishery Commission Project Catalogue is a searchable catalogue of projects funded by the Commission and datasets arising from those funded projects. The Project Catalogue does not host any datasets, rather the goal is to provide users with information allowing them to find data and resources arising from Commission-funded work.
The Project Catalogue is made up of two types of pages: project pages and data pages. Project pages give basic information on research projects funded by the Commission and may include links to publicly available research products. Data pages describe datasets generated by funded projects, including information on how to access the data. Data pages are aways associated with a host project page, but each project page may have multiple data pages.
Both project and data pages can be searched using the search fields below. Search results are sorted into project pages (top) and data pages (bottom).
This catalogue is currently being populated and in beta form. If you encounter any issues, please email email@example.com with a description of the problem and include “Project Catalogue” in the subject line.
