WGRDBESGOV is a governance group which oversees the current Regional Database (RDB) and the new Regional Database & Estimation System (RDBES) that is under development. 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​WGRDBESGOV consists of members from the EU Regional Coordination Groups (RCGs) that upload data to the RDB/RDBES​, and from ICES member countries. The group explores data governance questions including data policy, gives guidance on technical developments, and monitors the use of the RDB/RDBES. 

The RDB/RDBES stores detailed commercial fisheries sampling data and aggregated effort and landings data. The aims of the RDBES are: 

  • to ensure that data can be made available for the coordination of regional fisheries data sampling plans, including for the RCGs, 
  • to provide a regional estimation system such that statistical estimates of quantities of interest can be produced from sample data, 
  • to serve and facilitate the production of fisheries management advice and status reports, and 
  • to increase the awareness of fisheries data collected by the users of the RDBES and the overall usage of these data
This group used to be called the Steering Committee of the Regional Fisheries Database (SCRDB).
