The CECAF (Fishery Committee for the Eastern Central Atlantic) database presents annual statistics allocated by
(i) countries or areas,
(ii) species items,
(iii) statistical divisions,
of capture production (i.e. catches expressed as live weight equivalent of landings) in the Eastern Central Atlantic region for calendar years starting with 1970.
The data exclude production from marine aquaculture practices.
The database does not contain statistics for marine mammals, miscellaneous aquatic animal products, and seaweeds.
Data Periodicity: Data are reported yearly and the period used is the calendar year (1 January - 31 December.) Some countries or areas use a split-year in their reporting (e.g. year ending 30 June.)
