ICES Beam Trawl Survey for commercial fish species
Acronym
BTS
Description in English
Five countries are participating in the Working Group on Beam Trawl Surveys (WGBEAM). In total, during 8 offshore surveys data are collected. The surveys covered by WGBEAM have all their own origins and were not set up as one survey. Due to that, no standardization has taken place in gears. The different countries all have their own sampling area and because the gears used vary, it is not possible to change sampling locations from one country to the other without any thorough scientific study beforehand. However, WGBEAM tries to increase standardization in sampling by staff exchange during the surveys and by publishing a manual.
Abstract in English
The Beam Trawl Survey dataset includes age- and length-based catch per unit effort data for commercial fish species in ICES statical rectangles.
