The Fisheries and Climate Data Dashboard is a collection of dynamic, interactive data tools to provide better access to climate data to help understand changes in the ecosystem.

The geospatial footprint for this tool is the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NES LME). The NES LME is subset into sub-regions that align with the Ecological Production Units for the NE U.S. Continental Shelf. They include: The Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank, Scotian Shelf, and Mid-Atlantic Bight. For each subset, the data have been aggregated and averaged over all grid points within the area.

The primary data set in the dashboard is the global NOAA OISST (Optimum Interpolation Sea Surface Temperature). Several interactive displays were developed for the data, each with a slightly different focus to demonstrate the current conditions in the context of expected values, or climatologies. The data are updated daily to provide a dynamic picture of the ecosystem.
