The objective is to apply existing Baltic Sea monitoring data and identify their adequacy for establishing time series data and GIS based data layers (gridded) to estimate the extent of fisheries impact on the sea floor, estimated by:
Relevant data for the target parameters (listed below) will be gathered from EMODnet, HELCOM, ICES, STECF, and from (inter)national projects. Data of fishing effort and landings and of distribution of non-living and living components are available at different spatial and temporal scales.
The specific data required for this challenge include:
Furthermore, the outcomes of the literature survey (Work Package 1) will be used; e.g. to inform definitions of terminology and identify specific key data sets that should be used.
