Primary tabs

Marine Scotland deliver data and reports through the portal, and assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) to each published dataset. Once a DOI is created, it will remain on the site for reference information for as long as the site remain operational.
However, from time to time, we may update a published dataset to include more up to date information, or remove any potential errors in reported data. When we do this, the dataset will be released as a new dataset, with a new DOI assigned. To avoid confusion, we will then move any previous versions of the dataset to this Archived.
Hence, the archive group is for records that have more recent and updated information in other groups. As such, we always recommend to locate the more up to date resource.

Deprecated Version 1 : UK Fishing Intensity Associated with Oil and Gas Pipelines (2007-2015)

doi: 
10.7489/1972-1

Please note that this version of the data is deprecated. The original resource is avaialble on request, but it is strongly recommended to use the updated version of this data where minor issued in assigning operators to different polygons has been fixed. Further an open, machine readable csv version of the data is also avialble in the new verion which can be found on this site on doi: 10.7489/1972-2

The ‘UK fishing intensity along pipelines’ data can be downloaded as an ESRI ArcGIS layer package containing a single shapefile. The layer contains the pipeline ID, pipeline operator and 40 fields relating to fishing intensity. Fields labelled ‘Dem’ show the number of fishing tracks from vessels operating demersal trawls according to year (2007 – 2015) and for all years combined. Fields labelled ‘Nep’ show the number of fishing tracks from vessels operating Nephrops trawls according to year and for all years. Fields labelled ‘Dredge’ show the number of fishing tracks from vessels operating dredges according to year and for all years. The ‘AllGear’ fields represent the total number of tracks from demersal, Nephrops and dredge vessels combined according to year and for all years. It is recommended that users conduct initial data exploration using the ‘AllGears’ field to identify pipeline sections that are associated with fishing activity. The symbology of the layer can then be changed using the remaining fishing fields to identify the type of fishing in the area and temporal variability in fisheries interactions with pipeline sections.
