The Biological Information System for Marine Life, in short BISMaL, is a web-based data system for biodiversity information, particularly in biogeographic data of marine organisms. BISMaL was constructed by the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) and is operated in the Global Oceanographic Data Center (GODAC) of JAMSTEC. BISMaL collects information of marine organisms around Japan. Its aim is to open information of marine organisms to the public and to contribute to a better understanding of marine biodiversity.
