  • Digitized from Mariners’ Routeing Guide Baltic Sea ISBN 978-3-89871-771-7 (http://www.helcom.dk/map/). The line features are divided in categories, indicated by the the ZONE_TYPE attribute: 0 - Deep water route areas; 1 - Deep water route center line; 4 - Recommended route center; 6 - Traffic separation line; and 7 - Traffic separation scheme.

  • This dataset includes digitized deep-water route, traffic separation schemes, precautionary areas and inshore traffic zones in the Baltic Sea as defined in the 9th edition of the Ships Routing Guide (2008) of the International Maritime Organization. It was updated in 2017. The update includes information about new traffic separation schemes and deep-water routes, amendments to the existing traffic separation schemes and establishment of new two-way routes which are not included in the original 2008 routeing guide, but were adopted by the 54th, 55th, 57th, and 58th session of the Sub-Committee on the Safety of Navigation of the IMO, and 3rd session of IMO's Sub-Committee Meeting on the Navigation, Communications, Search and Rescue.

  • This dataset describes fishing effort (hours/c-square) for midwater trawl in 2011 based on VMS/Log book data processed by ICES Working Group on Spatial Fisheries Data (WGSFD). HELCOM requires spatially explicit information on fishing activity affecting the Baltic Sea marine ecosystem for policy purposes. In order to obtain this information a joint ICES/HELCOM/OSPAR data call was issued to relevant authorities of contracting parties to deliver information on fishing activity based on VMS/Log book data. The raw data was submitted to ICES and processed to advice data products by ICES Working Group for Spatial Fisheries (WGSFD) as requested by HELCOM. Processing of the raw data requires specific resources, knowledge and guarantee of anonymity for specific vessels, thus the process was done by ICES WGSFD following Conditions for VMS data use. In 2015 ICES collated Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) and logbook data received; data from Russia were not received. ICES provided to HELCOM advice as fishing abrasion pressure maps as well as fishing effort maps. HELCOM secretariat did the following processing to the data: - Conversion to ETRS89LAEA coordinate system - Added feature and attribute "Reported" to display unreported areas. Dataset attribute information: c-square: Unique reference of the c-square polygon mid_lat: latitude coordinate of the centroid of c-square inWGS84 decimal degrees mid_lon: longitude coordinate of the centroid of c-square inWGS84 decimal degrees Year: Year of fishing activity quarter: Quarter of the year, if applicable geargroup: Fishing gear group (Effort maps) SubsurfSAR: Subsurface swept area ratio (Intensity maps) SurfSAR: Surface swept area ratio (Intensity maps) Fishing_ho: Total fishing effort in hours within c-square (Effort maps) Reported: Yes=Reported data. No= No reported data (area that does not contain effort/intensity value due to lack of reported data.
