Annual catch of tuna, tuna-like and shark species in the Atlantic Ocean (1950-2015) aggregated by sampling area (ICCAT level 0)

This dataset lists catch of tuna, tuna-like and major shark species from the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) from 1950 to 2015. Catches are stratified by year, species, fishing gear, vessel flag reporting country, sampling area. It corresponds to the ICCAT nominal catch (task1) dataset.

This dataset was downloaded on the ICCAT website. It was then restructured to be in line with the Sardara database structure (columns normalization, names, etc.). However the content of data and the code lists were kept exactly as their are available in the source dataset.

The description below (caracteristics, specific issues and problems that need to be taken into account) is extracted from the ICCAT web page where the dataset has been downloaded.

In general, responsibility for reporting catch and landings data rests on flag states.
