The stock assessments of crabs and lobster use official landings data (as shown in this data layer), which provide location of capture (ICES rectangle), the species and the weight landed into ports in Scotland. These data are collated by Marine Scotland Compliance from sales notes and EU logbook and FISH1 forms, and are held in the Marine Scotland Fisheries Information Network (FIN) database and in the Marine Scotland Science (MSS) Fisheries Management Database (FMD).
