ICES Secretariat has collected relevant VMS and logbook data to produce, as a technical service to OSPAR, updated spatial data layers on fishing intensity/pressure. Improved data quality control checks were implemented. Submitted data across the OSPAR area have improved in both quality and coverage. Standardized methods were used to produce the requested data layers.
