The workshop will continue the development and comparison of methods to classify high spatio-temporal resolution position data into fishing activities, started at WKSSFGEO and prepare an overview of the types of information that can be inferred with different temporal frequencies of acquisition of geospatial data.
The output will be:
WKSSFGEO2 will also explore the extent of VMS and logbook data for small-scale vessels already available at ICES and use the FDI database to determine the extent of small-scale fisheries that use bottom-contacting fishing gear in the EU for an indication of the most impacting gear(s) on the seafloor.
Registration for the workshop is closed.
If the workshop is oversubscribed, ICES reserves the right, in
consultation with the workshop chairs, to select the final workshop
participants based on geographic and subject expertise distribution.
