Spherical | Analytics Launches Marine Databank with Port of New Bedford

Spherical | Analytics (S|A) is pleased to announce that our partnership with the New Bedford Port Authority (NBPA) has been awarded the Seaport Economic Council (SEC) Grand Challenge Grant to seed the launch of the Marine Databank.

The Marine Databank (MBD) will act as a data coop, or on a mutual company model. Those sharing data, analytics and other digital tools to contribute to science, sustainable fisheries, oceans health, costal community resilience and other pressing challenges include fishing boat/ fleet owners, shellfish harvesters, researchers, conversation groups and other public and private enterprises. Privacy and data ownership rights will be protected as they explore sharing, trading or licensing of their data, analytics and models.
