    Catch data for macroplankon trawls from IMR cruise 2013107, covering large areas of the North Atlantic in May and June, 2013. The dataset contains trawl data from hauls dedicated to catching macroplankton and micronekton, using specialised, fine-meshed, non-graded trawls. All data presented are from oblique hauls, and is given as total catch biomass for all taxonomic groups (at different taxonomic resolutions, with some species identified and some organisms only identified to coarser taxonomic levels) in the catch, on a format compatible with the ICES trawl-acoustic database.Some Abstract

  • The dataset includes information about spatial distribution and abundance of fish eggs and larvae in the North Sea based on the data from the North Sea Cod and Plaice egg surveys (2004, 2009). The survey is later succeeded by the MIKey Net Survey in the North Sea

  • The dataset includes age- and length-based catch per unit effort data for commercial fish species collected during the Portuguese Ground Fish trawl survey.

  • VME data portal is a central portal for data on the distribution and abundance of Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs), (and organisms considered to be indicators of VMEs) across the North Atlantic that has been set up by the Joint ICES/NAFO Working Group on Deep-water Ecology (WGDEC) and is hosted by ICES. The database is comprised of 'VME habitats' and 'VME indicators' records. The VME database serves multiple purposes; ICES uses it for providing scientifically-robust advice on the distribution of VMEs and recommending possible management solutions such as bottom fishing closures within NEAFC (North East Atlantic Fisheries Commission) waters to protect VMEs.

    The dataset contains integrated values of total and mesopelagic backscatter for an EK60 38 kHz echosounder, from ~25 to 1000 m depth, collected during May 2019 during a Norwegian cruise aimed at mapping mesopelagic resources. Data is based on integration of data cleaned with automatic filters using KORONA, and manual cleanup of remaining problems (false bottoms etc.). All backscatter deeper than 200 m were then assigned to the mesopelagic category, with backscatter shallower than 200 m reported in the total category.

    The dataset contains integrated values of total and mesopelagic backscatter for an EK60 38 kHz echosounder, from ~25 to 1000 m depth, collected during May and June 2013 during a Norwegian trans-atlantic cruise. Data is based on integration of data cleaned with automatic filters using KORONA, and manual cleanup of remaining problems (false bottoms etc.). All backscatter deeper than 200 m were then assigned to the mesopelagic category, with backscatter shallower than 200 m reported in the total category.
