Methodology
Governance

1. Context & Background: • Threat to Fishing Grounds • Short term - Marine protected areas

- Offshore windfarms
• Longer term - Marine Spatial planning • NSRAC already recognised need to provide credible spatial information on fishing activity • Significant to future Regional management

2. Introduction: • Fishermen’s knowledge, experience and information central to whole project • Project must be clearly understood and trusted by Industry • Modular and flexible in approach • Builds on existing technology • Taking account of the Under 15m fleet • Developing a dialogue with scientific institutes

3. Methodology: i. Satellite VMS data

• >24m and more recently> 15m
• 2-hourly reports to Flag state provides coarse scale resolution

• Fishing gear code obtained from logsheet data or fleet register
• CEFAS in UK ‘filtered’ to remove non-fishing data • Data already exists

3. Methodology:
ii. Radio VMS data
• Significant part of N Sea fleet • Data void for < 15m vessels so a means of collecting data needs to be established • Radio VMS trialed in UK using mobile phone technology • Significantly lower costs • Med / fine scale resolution

3. Methodology:
iii. Fishermen’s plotter data
• Highly detailed, fine scale resolution held by many skippers

• Data exists but will need formatting
• Time consuming as individual skipper approaches required • Highly sensitive – confidentiality a given • Can provide historical patterns and trends

3. Methodology:
iv. Project management & Communication

• Data administration
• Project management • Fisheries liaison • Communication

- Individual confidentiality
- Online & accessible - Trusted local knowledge - Targeted to audience

• Financial administration - Competent

4. Governance:
Project steering group (Crown Estate, NFFO & SFF, DECC, Marine Scotland, MMO, R3 developers, )
Technical advice Data interpretation & analysis

CEFAS VMS data collation, storage, processing (running through established algorithms) and presentation on defined chart format and possible export to GIS

Ormtec
Vessel plotter data collation, storage, processing and presentation to MaRS Estate)

Crown Estate (UK) MaRS exchange data

VMS data: National Administration (MMO, Marine Scotland, DARD & WAG) Provision of > 15 (18)m VMS data for all UK vessels and foreign vessels in UK waters

Industry bodies (NFFO/SFF) Acquisition of plotter data from fishing vessel plotters undertaken by NFFO /SFF Services

Under 15M data Set-up UK pilot of 30 vessels fitted with low-cost VMS units (supplied by SELEX)

UK Fishing Industry Fishing industry – organisations (NFFO, SFF and others) and individuals fishing throughout UK waters
