The database hosts information on fisheries
observations collected from various pelagic surveys coordinated by ICES and falls into two categories: acoustic data, derived from readings
taken on vessels, and those obtained through trawls in the open ocean –
pelagic – zone. Combined, this provides key biological data on
fish stocks such as herring, mackerel and blue whiting as well as krill
and other prey species.
This project has received funding from the European Commission - Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 633211.
