BarentsWatch was launched in May-2012  by Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Jonas Gahr Støre and Norwegian Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen. The information portal provides an overview of activity and knowledge in coastal and sea areas. The system covers sea and coastal areas from Denmark in the south, to Greenland in the west, the North Pole in the north and Novaja Semlja in the east.
The establishment of the BarentsWatch information system is based on cooperation between 27 Norwegian state agencies and research institutes.
The Norwegian government decided in June 2010 that their ocean management and information system BarentsWatch should be placed in Tromsø .
The system integration was delivered by Kongsberg Spacetec.
