Information related to diet and energy flow is fundamental to a diverse range of Antarctic and Southern Ocean biological and ecosystem studies. EG-ABI is collating a centralised database of such information to assist the scientific community in this work. It will include data related to diet and energy flow from conventional (e.g. gut content) and modern (e.g. molecular) studies, stable isotopes, fatty acids, and energetic content. It will be a product of the SCAR community and open for all to participate in and use.

The Southern Ocean Diet and Energetics Database is hosted by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre.  


The database is a product of the Expert Group on Antarctic Biodiversity Informatics (EG-ABI).

Antarctic or Southern Ocean researchers holding diet and energetics data, or who are interested in using such data in their work, are encouraged to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
