Study 2008-10 lot 2: Development of tools for logbook and VMS data analysis

Satellite VMS data and logbook data are already being collected. They are however not yet automatically classified by metier nor are they usable in determining the spatial distribution of fishing activities. This study will develop a method to allow these uses of VMS and logbook data.  Why this study?

Study 2006-15 lot 9: Improved methodology for Cod age estimation
