Average intensity (hours) of fishing using ICES VMS data sets
Marine Scotland has created aggregated data sets based on ICES data and clipped to Scottish continental shelf. Effort in hours was aggregated into total and average for the period 2009-2016 for three groups of fishing method: bottom trawls, dredges and crustaceans caught by bottom trawl (i.e. nephrops). These show as three MS Maps NMPi layers:
- Average intensity (hours) of fishing with bottom trawls 2009-2016 (ICES SR.2017.17)
- Average intensity (hours) of fishing with dredges 2009-2016 (ICES SR.2017.17)
- Average intensity (hours) of fishing for nephrops and crustaceans with bottom trawls 2009-2017 (ICES SR.2018.14), this layer is a sub set of layer 2 although has additional 2017 data.
