General comment: This table fulfils paragraph 2 point (a)(i)(ii)(iii) of Chapter III of the multiannual Union programme and Article 2, Article 3 and Article 8 of this Decision. This table is intended to specify data to be collected under Tables 1(A), 1(B) and 1(C) of the multiannual Union programme. Use this table to give an overview of the collection of data at the level of area/stock. All individuals sampled shall be identified to species level and have length measurements taken, where possible.

Name of the variable

Guidance

MS

Member State's name shall be given as ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 code, e.g. ‘DEU’.

Reference years

Member State shall report the year(s) to which the data actually refer. Member State shall select the three most recent years with data available. Give the reference year/years as ‘2013-2015’.

Species

Member State shall report (in Latin) the name of the species/stocks for which biological variables sampling is required according to the Tables 1(A), 1(B) and 1(C) of the multiannual Union programme, for all areas where the Member State's fishing fleet is operating.

Average landings in the reference years (tons)

Average landings for each species and stock over the most recent 3-year reference period. While entering the landings data, Member State shall take into account the following conventions:

 

If the species is not landed at all, then enter ‘None’.

 

If the average landings are less than 200 t, then do not enter the average landings figure, but enter ‘< 200’ instead.

 

If the average landings exceed 200 t, then enter the average landings figure for the most recent 3-year reference period. Average landings figures may be rounded to the nearest 5 or 10 t.

EU TAC (if any)

(%)

Only applies to stocks that are subject to TAC and quota Regulations. In this column Member State shall:

enter ‘None’, if the Member State has no share in the EU TAC of the stock concerned,

enter the exact share if the Member State has a share in the EU TAC of the stock concerned.

Share (%) in EU landings

Applies to (i) all stocks in the Mediterranean; and (ii) all stocks outside the Mediterranean for which no TACs have been defined yet. In this column Member State shall:

enter ‘None’, if the Member State has no landings of the stock concerned,

enter the exact share, if the Member State has landings of the stock concerned, in the case that the Member State wants to invoke a threshold.

Threshold (Y/N)

Member State shall indicate by ‘Y’ (yes) or ‘N’ (no) whether, for the reported species/stock, a threshold applies, according to Chapter V of the multiannual Union programme.

This table refers to data to be collected under Tables 1(A), 1(B) and 1(C) of the multiannual Union programme. Use this table to identify all fishery-dependent sampling schemes in the Member State. The Member State shall list the strata within the scheme, the primary sampling unit (PSU) type and the envisaged number of PSUs that will be available in the year of submission. For each stratum, Member State shall record the number of PSUs it is planning to undertake.

Name of the variable

Guidance

MS

Member State's name shall be given as ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 code, e.g. ‘DEU’.

MS participating in sampling

If the sampled activity has been carried out according to a regionally coordinated programme, all participating Member States shall be listed. Otherwise, the Member State responsible for the sampling shall be listed. Links to planned regional and international coordination or bi- and multilateral agreements, where available, shall be listed in the ‘Comments’.

Region

Member State shall refer to the naming convention used in Table 5(C) of the multiannual Union programme (level II). If information refers to all regions, insert ‘all regions’.

RFMO/RFO/IO

Member State shall enter the acronym of the competent regional fisheries management organisation (RFMO), regional fisheries organisation (RFO) or international organisation (IO) for providing management/advice on the species/stock.

e.g. RFMO: ICCAT, GFCM, NAFO

e.g. RFO: CECAF

e.g. IO: ICES

If no RFMO, RFO or IO is applicable, ‘NA’ (not applicable) is used.

Sub-area/Fishing ground

Member State shall indicate the fishing ground (e.g. the ICES area, the GFCM GSA, the NAFO area, etc.).

Scheme

Member State shall state the sampling scheme: ‘at markets’, ‘at sea’, a combination of both methods or ‘other’. If ‘other’ is used (e.g. ‘other (Market stock-specific sampling)’), it shall be described in Text Box 4A of this Annex.

Stratum ID code

Member State shall indicate a unique code to identify each stratum within the scheme. Free text or coding can be used, but it shall always coincide with the ‘stratum ID code’, as in Table 4B of this Annex. Strata with no coverage (i.e. no planned number of PSUs) shall also be detailed, in order to provide measurement on coverage of the sampling plan.

PSU type

Member State shall indicate the primary sampling unit (PSU) inside each stratum. PSU could be fishing trip, fishing vessel, port, fishing day, etc.

Catch fractions covered

Member State shall indicate which fraction of the catch is to be sampled. Insert ‘Catch’, if the bulk catch is sampled, ‘Landings’, ‘Discards’, ‘Landings+Discards’, etc.

Species/Stocks covered for estimation of volume and length of catch fractions

Member State shall indicate if the sampling plan covers all or only a part of the species. Insert ‘all species and stocks’, ‘only stocks in Table 1A, 1B and 1C’, ‘selected species/stocks’ and specify further in ‘Comments’.

Seasonality (Temporal strata)

Member State shall provide a keyword description of the sampling scheme in terms of temporal stratification: ‘monthly’, ‘quarterly’, ‘annual’, etc.

Reference years

Member State shall indicate the year(s) used as a reference for the expected primary sampling units in the year of implementation of the sampling scheme. Member State shall use the three most recent years (e.g. ‘2014-2016’). Reasons may be given to justify the use of a different period.

Average number of PSUs during the reference years

Member State shall indicate the total number of PSUs calculated as the average values of the years used as reference.

Planned number of PSUs

Member State shall state the planned number of PSU to be sampled.
