NAFO Annual Fisheries Statistics Databases
NAFO Members send their annual compilation of information on national catches and landings to the NAFO Secretariat. These data are used for statistical purpose within NAFO (and elsewhere). Complete statistical data have been published in Statistical Bulletin since 1951. This printed version of the statistics were discontinued after Vol. 49 for 1999. The electronic database of the STATLANT 21 data are updated regularly as new information becomes available.
21A database: contains information on annual catches by species, subareas, country, and year. A Data Extraction tool has been developed that provides users access to STATLANT21A data in a user friendly way. The query allows individual selections of country, division, species and year. The tool allows for the output of data in comma-separated values and pdf formats.
21B database: contains monthly catch and effort information by year, country, gear, tonnage, main species, Divison, and year. As it is very large, the Secretariat makes it available on the web as a number of comma-delimited text files containing one decade each.
