Information requested

I would like to request (if possible) fishing VMS data for all of the ICES rectangles in Scotland for the period of Jan 2023 – Dec 2023 (inclusive). Please could speed and nationality information be included as a minimum. Any other vessel information you could provide would be much appreciated.


I enclose a copy of the information you requested – VMS data at fishing speeds (>0 and <6kn) for ICES rectangles intersecting with the Scottish zone.

Due to the size of the files we are unable to upload the documents referred to above.
If you wish to consider, please contact us at the address below and we will be happy to provide.
