Fishing effort within Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine waters This entry provides access to spatial layers that feature in the Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Science Advice Report titled ‘Delineation of Significant Areas of Coldwater Corals and Sponge-Dominated Communities in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic Marine Waters and their Overlap with Fishing Activity’ and CSAS Research Document titled ‘Analysis of the overlap between fishing effort and Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine waters’. These spatial layers show cumulative fishing effort in Canada’s Atlantic and Eastern Arctic waters for the years 2005-2014. Production of the spatial layers was based on vessel monitoring system (VMS) and commercial logbook data sources. Fishing effort is provided in standardized spatial layers for various fisheries groupings: all fisheries combined, aggregations of gear type, and fisheries classes as defined in the CSAS reports. 2018-07-04 2019-02-11 Fisheries and Oceans Canada corinna.favaro@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentOceansConservation areasAquatic animalsAquatic wildlifeConservationEnvironmental impactEnvironmental sciencesFisheriesMarine biologyMarine conservation areas Science Advisory Report 2017/007HTML http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/csas-sccs/Publications/SAR-AS/2017/2017_007-eng.html Research Document 2018/015HTML http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/csas-sccs/Publications/ResDocs-DocRech/2018/2018_015-eng.html Fisheries logbook percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fisheries_logbook_TIFF.zip Fisheries merged effort percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fisheries_merged_effort_TIFF.zip Fisheries VMS percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fisheries_VMS_TIFF.zip Fixed mobile aggregates – logbook percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fixed_mobile_aggregates_logbook_TIFF.zip Fixed mobile aggregates – merged effort percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fixed_mobile_aggregates_merged_effort_TIFF.zip Fixed mobile aggregates – VMS percentilesZIP https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/Fixed_mobile_aggregates_VMS_TIFF.zip Fishing effort layers explained - 1 of 2TXT https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/readme_list_of_layers_included.txt Fishing effort layers explained - 2 of 2TXT https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/SBA_FishingEffort/readme_SBA_layers.txt Fishing effort within Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine watersESRI REST https://geoportal.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/FishingEffort_SBA/MapServer Fishing effort within Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine watersESRI REST https://geoportal.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/FishingEffort_SBA/MapServer Fishing effort within Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine watersWMS https://geoportal.gc.ca/arcgis/services/FGP/FishingEffort_SBA/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=1&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Fishing effort within Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine watersWMS https://geoportal.gc.ca/arcgis/services/FGP/FishingEffort_SBA/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=1&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
