Literature
        

Review of the literature is an essential starting point for any endeavour in GIS, remote sensing, or mapping. Yet, reviews are often incomplete for lack of access to the material, and consequently projects experience durations that are longer and costs that are higher than need be because the accumulated knowledge has not been tapped and taken advantage of. This page sets out to mitigate that problem. It is a gateway to the literature that represents much of the accumulated global experience on using GIS, remote sensing and mapping to solve problems and issues in marine fisheries with emphasis on EAF.

Spatial issues addressed most frequently for marine fisheries are listed in table at issues section along with the number of literature records currently contained in GISFish databases.

Abstract / DescriptionThis article describes in detail the "IMAS-Fish" web-based tool implementation technicalities and provides examples on how it can be used for scientific and management purposes, setting new standards in fishery science. "IMAS-Fish" was developed to support the assessment of marine biological resources by: (i) homogenizing all available datasets under a relational database, (ii) facilitating quality control and data entry, (iii) offering easy access to raw data, (iv) providing processed results through a series of classical and advanced fishery statistics algorithms, and (v) visualizing the results on maps using GIS1 technology. Available datasets cover among others: Fishery independent experimental survey data (location, species, catch composition, biological data); Commercial fishing activities (fishing gear, location, catch composition, discards); Market sampling data (species, biometry, maturity, ageing); Satellite derived ocean data (Sea surface temperature, Salinity, Wind speed, Chlorophyll-a concentrations, Photosynthetically active radiation); Oceanographic parameters (CTD2 measurements); Official national fishery statistics; Fishing fleet registry and VMS3 data; Fishing ports inventory; Fishing legislation archive (national and EU); Bathymetry grids. Currently, the homogenized database includes more than 100,000,000 records. The web-based application is accessible through an internet browser and can serve as a valuable tool for all involved stakeholders: fisheries scientists, state officials responsible for management, fishermen's cooperatives, academics, students and NGOs
