Fleet Segment DCR

The fleet segment is defined by the gear code and the vessel length category


gear codes - see codes below

VESSEL_LENGTH=vessel length class - see codes below. It defines the minimum and maximum vessel length of fleet segment.

The segmentation to level 2 is defined in Appendix III of the Commission Regulation 1639/2001, to level 3 in Appendix VIII and to level 4 in Appendix X.



VL0012=vessels less than 12 metres in length
VL1224=vessels between 12 metres and 24 metres in length
VL2440=vessels between 24 metres and 40 metres in length
VL40XX=vessels greater than 40 metres in length
