The State of the Arctic Marine Biodiversity Report (SAMBR), is a product of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CMBP) of the Arctic Council's Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Working Group. The SAMBR is a synthesis of the state of knowledge about biodiversity in Arctic marine ecosystems, detectable changes, and important gaps in our ability to assess state and trends in biodiversity across six Focal Ecosystem Components (FECs): sea ice biota, plankton, benthos, marine fishes, seabirds and marine mammals.
