    The dataset on fishing quotas by Fishery Management Zones (FMZs) was created in 2024 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is based on DG MARE's data and it is available for viewing and download on EMODnet web portal (Human Activities, https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). Total allowable catches (TACs), as Initial Quantity and Adapted Quota, are catch limits (expressed in tonnes) provided for each fish species (code and name) for a given year. Each stock is associated with one FMZ, but a FMZ can have multiple Stocks associated with it. Each species+area combination (stock) has multiple quota values per year. Quota values of the level'TAC' represent total allowable catch (sum of EU and third countries’ quotas). 'EEC' is the EU quota, which is the sum of individual Member States’ quotas. Thus in visualising the values of the quotas, the level needs to be taken into account. For many stocks, there is no value in the quota table. This means that the stock is defined only for reporting purposes, but there is no limitation of the amount of allowable catches. Due to the amount of data, all the attributes are not shown in the mapviewer, thus it is recommended to download the data in order to access to all the available info. The dataset is updated yearly and it covers a time series from 2012 onwards.

    The dataset on the shellfish protected areas under the Water Framework Directive (WFD) was created in 2023 by AND-International for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The Directive (Article 6, paragraphs 1 and 2) requires Member States to designate areas which require specific protection of their surface water and groundwater, or for the conservation of habitats and species directly depending on water. According to Annex IV (ii) of the WFD, these areas should include areas designated for the protection of economically significant aquatic species (shellfish in this case). This dataset compiles the designated areas as provided by national sources (The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government of Ireland and The Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demography in Spain) and it is available for viewing and download on EMODnet web portal (Human Activities, https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). Each polygon has the following attributes: area ID (in EMODnet), country, area name, designation date, ID from the source.

    The dataset on licensed sites of shellfish aquaculture in the EU was created in 2023 by AND-International for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by national sources representing the delimitation of shellfish farms (polygons) in the following countries: France, Ireland and Spain. Data from France and Spain comes from national and regional cadastral data, while data from Ireland comes from the list of registered aquaculture sites. Each polygon has the following attributes (where available): country, expiration date, farm type (Mussels, Oysters, Mussels-Oysters, Clams, Specialised (other), Mixed (other)), species from the source (English translation of the information provided on species grown or authorised in the source), production method (Beds, Long lines, Rafts, Saltwater closed (recirculation), Saltwater ponds, Saltwater tanks/raceways, Trestles or trays, Bouchot, On-bottom, Sea cages, Other), production stage (Broodstock, Grow out for human consumption, Harvest, Hatchery, Nursery, Reproduction, Wild capture of seeds, Purification, Maturing, Other), purpose (only specified for some sites authorised for research purposes), polygon information (Lines to Polygon or Original) depending on how the information is provided in the source (polygons or lines), site_id, year updated (in the source), shape length and shape area. The farm type relies on a typology established by AND-International, based on available information on species grown or authorised. A relational table provides harmonised information about species grown or authorised using Eurostat nomenclature for the Species Group (Mussels; Oysters; Clams, cockles, arkshells; Scallops, pectens; Abalones, winkles, conchs; Sea-urchins and other echinoderms) and when available the species name (e.g. Blue mussels - Mytilus edulis). Data are available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal ( https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities), except for the data from Spain, which are available in the viewer, but not for download.
