MedStat 2011 - Fishing Vessel Census; Operational Manual - Supplement 0 - Basic Structure.
GCP/INT/918/EC/MedFisis - MedFisis Technical Document, 45 pp.

This document is the essential tool for the field recorder and the basis of data collection during the census exercise.

The Census Questionnaire is linked to other two documents, the Data Field Descriptions and the References (Codification System), which together constitute the Source of Information, Data Structure, Definition and Codification.

The Questionnaire is the tool used to collect the data in the field (one questionnaire per vessel) while the Data Field Descriptions document provides insight/clarifications of what is required in each field of the questionnaire, and the References document provides lists of all possible answers for fields.
