Nicolas Bailly on how SeaLifeBase was built from an ’empty shell’ of FishBase

On the fifth episode of the FishBase and SeaLifeBase Anniversary Podcast, Dr Nicolas Bailly tells the story of how he took part in the creation of SeaLifeBase by taking an empty shell of the FishBase database structure and populating it with information from the Catalogue of Life (CoL). He also explains how SeaLifeBase has evolved in the past 15 years and what it has taken to improve the processes related to the input of data and the availability of these data to the public.

At present, Dr. Bailly is a Curatorial Assistant at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver, Canada and has remained linked to the SeaLifeBase project as its Scientific Adviser.

This podcast is part of a year-long campaign aimed at celebrating the 30th anniversary of FishBase and the 15th anniversary of SeaLifeBase. Enjoy it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast/ or on whatever platform you use to listen to your podcasts.
