Lineage The AGRRA Access database contains information for the 2480 site surveys that were completed from 1997 to the present. Researches from many nations in the tropical Western Atlantic have participated in this international collaboration. The data is entered through the online AGRRA form. New data that is collected goes through a vetting process before becoming part of the official AGRRA database. This new data is kept “on hold” to allow the contributing researcher time to complete analyses and publications. During this time, the data is not available to the public. When new data becomes part of the public database, an updated release will be made available.
