Each ICES statistical rectangle is '30 min latitude by 1 degree longitude' in size which is approximately 30 nautical miles by 30 nautical miles*. A number of rectangles are amalgamated to create ICES areas.</p>
<p>*Because the Earth is a spheroid shape, the area of an ICES rectangle will vary by latitude. In Scottish waters, the average area of a rectangle is 940 nautical miles square, but varies between 801 and 1056 nautical miles square.</p>
