EU Fishing Fleet Socio-Economic data call

EU-MAP

Under the provisions of Council Regulation (EC) 2017/1004, we are requesting the economic variables for the fleet detailed in Table 5A of the Commission Delegated Decision (EU) 2021/1167. In particular, variables on Income, Costs, Subsidies, Capital and Investment, Financial position, Employment, Effort (energy consumption) and Enterprises/units.

We are also requesting fishing activity variables (Capacity, Effort and Landings) for the fishing fleet set out in Table 4 and social variables in Table 6 of the Commission Delegated Decision (EU) 2021/1167.

Member States are invited to submit these data following the geographical stratification by region set out in Table 5C and fleet segmentation in Table 5B of the Commission Delegated Decision (EU) 2021/1167.

Templates

To be able to upload data you need to use files with a specific structure. The files can be downloaded all at once [here] or one by one from the table below:

base fleet segment data: data at fleet segment level: data at national level: social data:
  • map_social
    (not requested in 2024)

(last update: 30 January 2024)

Important notes

  • The upload tool accepts only Excel files with a specific format, as they are provided:
    • do not change the headers (names and order of columns).
    • the file's name must start with the one provided, any string can be added after provided file name; for example: map_capacity can become map_capacity_2018 or map_capacity_JRC but not JRC_map_capacity.
  • If you need to change or delete values in year X, you need to reupload all the valid values for year X. The system will substitute the new list with the old one for a given year. Changes are executed by year.
  • More important details are summarised in the document.
