EMODnet EMODnet Human Activities: Fish catches by FAO statistical area

The geodatabase on fish catches in the EU was created in 2015 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation of EUROSTAT's fish catches datasets fish_ca_atl 27, fish_ca_atl 34, fish_ca_atl 37, fish_ca_main_h. EUROSTAT data have been related to FAO's georeferenced fishing statistical areas. Fish species have been grouped by EUMOFA's larger aggregations such as EUMOFA's Commodity Groups (CG) and Main Commercial Species (MCS). Tonnes live weight is provided for each fish species caught in EU fishing statistical area, by year of reference, fish species, CG, MCS and country. The dataset is updated yearly, as soon as new data from EUROSTAT is released. It covers a time series from 1950 to 2016. Compared with the previous version this new version includes data for 2016, as well as the new Main Commercial Species identified by the EUMOFA in 2018.
