Dr. Nicolas Bailly is a Curatorial Assistant at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver, Canada, and Scientific Adviser of SeaLifeBase.
Back in the mid-2000s, Dr. Bailly together with Dr. Deng Palomares helped create SeaLifeBase by taking an empty shell of the FishBase database structure and populating it with information from the Catalogue of Life.
Later on, he worked on improving the processes and the data available in SeaLifeBase, and has remained linked to the project as a scientific adviser.
On this episode, Dr. Bailly shares with us some of the unpublished details behind the creation of this groundbreaking database.
