Datasets and Code: Fishing effort 2021-03-10T20:20:03-05:00

Daily fishing effort, gridded at 0.01 degrees, by gear type and flag state, and at 0.1 degrees by vessel, is available to download.

The methodology for these data are described in our Science paper, “Tracking the Global Footprint of Fisheries”.

Fishing effort is available for the time period 2012 to 2020. We will eventually be releasing in an up-to-date streaming format.
