The key scientific outputs from the ChAOS project are of direct relevance to stakeholders with an interest in Arctic marine ecology and multiple uses of the benthic environment. These include climate scientists, organic and inorganic biogeochemists, benthic biologists and ecologists, and biogeochemical modellers.

The main UK stakeholders include the government organisations DEFRA and CEFAS to ensure the project outcomes directly inform political decision making. National organisations working in the Arctic with an interest in the ChAOS scientific outputs are the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP, a working group of the Arctic Council), Protection of the Arctic Marine Environment (PAME) and MAREANO. The commercial and industrial sector stakeholders include the UK Renewable Energy Association and various working groups of the Arctic Council, as well as the World Wildlife Fund.
