The fishing fleet data collection is part of the more comprehensive data gathering carried out on an annual basis by the Fisheries Committee (COFI) of the Trade and Agriculture Directorate (TAD) from OECD members and participating non-OECD economies.

Data on marine landings, aquaculture production, inland fisheries catch, fleet, employment, total allowable catch (TAC) and fisheries support estimate (FSE) are collected from Fisheries Ministries, National Statistics Offices and other institutions designated as an official data source. The surveys used for this exercise are the OECD Fisheries questionnaires.

Statistical population

The statistical population is the set of countries participating in the work of the COFI, i.e. OECD members, excluding landlocked countries, with some exceptions (Czech Republic and Slovakia are included, Israel is not).

The group includes also the following partner countries: Argentina, China, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Lithuania, Peru, Philippines, Russian Federation and Thailand.

In order to facilitate analysis and comparisons over time, historical data for OECD members have been provided over as long a period as possible, often even before a country became a member of the Organisation.

Information on the membership dates of all OECD countries can be found at OECD Ratification Dates.

Key statistical concept

The term 'fishery fleet' or 'fishery vessels' refers to mobile floating objects of any kind and size, operating in freshwater, brackish water and marine waters which are used for catching, harvesting, searching, transporting, landing, preserving and/or processing fish, shellfish and other aquatic organisms, residues and plants.

The term 'fishing vessel' is used instead when the vessel is engaged only in catching operations.

The term 'non-fishing vessel' applies to vessels performing other functions related to fisheries, such as supplying, protecting, rendering assistance or conducting research or training.

The Gross Register Tonnage represents the total measured cubic content of the permanently enclosed spaces of a vessel, with some allowances or deductions for exempt spaces such as living quarters (1 gross register ton = 100 cubic feet = 2.83 cubic metres).

The Gross Tonnage for ships of 24 metres in length and over refers to the volume of all ship's enclosed spaces (from keel to funnel) measured to the outside of the hull framing.

The methodological reference document for fisheries and aquaculture statistics is the CWP Handbook of Fishery Statistics.
