Workshop on Geo-Spatial Data for Small-Scale Fisheries



WKSSFGEOWKSSFGEOTrueHAPISGWorkshop on Geo-Spatial Data for Small-Scale Fisheries

This workshop aims to discuss and apply methods for identifying trips/hauls in small-scale fisheries using high resolution geo-spatial data, define best practice and assess advantages and disadvantages of methods and tools.
​​Dates: 29 November – 3 December 2021
Venue: IPMA, Lisbon, Portugal

The workshop will focus on discussing and developing standard procedures for identifying trips/hauls using highly resolved geo‐spatial data (typically found in SSF), in a collaborative manner. Participants should bring their own data for the case studies and be proficient in R. The output will be an R‐script for working with this type of geo‐spatial data.

This work improves our understanding of the advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of the different methods to estimate fishing effort from LSF, SSF (including /static gears) and establish best practices.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own data in order to get the most out of the workshop. The geo-spatial data must be organized as: latitude and longitude in decimal format; time_stamp (YYYY-MM-DD H:M:S); speed and heading/bearing (if available); ID. Part of the dataset should have been validated (i.e. fish/travel events accurately identified).​​
