“Marine Lexicon is a cooperative project between Portugal and Norway, funding by EEA Grants, aiming at the construction of a thesaurus of European common names of marine mammals (cetacean, seals, sea lions, and sirenian) and symbolic elements (sea monsters, hybrid beings, folklore creatures) represented in the early modern age (15th – 18th centuries).”
