Commercial Line, Net and Trawl Fisheries Active Licenses, Effort days, Harvest Weight and GVP - 2013 (DAFF, SELTMP)

This dataset contains Active Licenses, Effort days, Harvest Weight and GVP for the Queensland commercial harvest, line, net, pot and trawl fisheries. The data is provided on a 30 min grid for locations where there are more than 5 licensed operators. Commercial fishers and charter fishers are required by law to complete daily logbooks. Commercial fishing logbooks are used to record: overall catch, time spent fishing, location where catch was taken and fishing equipment used. This data is then managed by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). This dataset consists of 20 layers (Active Licenses, Effort days, Harvest Weight and GVP) x (commercial harvest, line, net, pot and trawl fisheries). This metadata is not authoritative and was developed as part of the eAtlas project. The shapefiles associated with this dataset were compiled by the SELTMP team.
