WKEELDATAWKEELDATATrueCaroline DurifEOSGcaroline.durif@imr.noWorkshop on Designing an Eel Data Call

The purpose of this workshop is to design a data call to all countries having natural production of European eel.

The joint EIFAAC/ICES/GFCM Working Group on Eels (WGEEL) annually collates data on recruitment, catches and landings from commercial and recreational fisheries, restocking, aquaculture production, rates of other human-induced mortalities on eel, biological characteristics of eel, etc. A refinement and standardisation of the data reporting process is  required, and a data call hosted by ICES, EIFAAC and GFCM aims to significantly improve the situation.

WKEELDATA is tasked to:

  • review WGEEL data requirements and define data quality standards

  • modify WGEEL data spreadsheets to make them most efficient for data entry and analysis

  • plan work to create a future database suitable for WGEEL data

  • draft a proposal for eel data call.
