Progress Report on WP2 : Data Collection April 2007: joint document (by CEDEM and JRC) providing: – headings for describing the fisheries of COBECOS – Corresponding set of indicators (data) Based on this document, all partners organised the collection of data Status of data collection for the main headings identified (situation as of 01/09)
Synthesis: difficulties anticipated Norway (SNF): access to Court cases (a sample was obtained) Italy (IREPA): access to the costs of Court actions and access to enforcement data Netherlands (LEI): Estimations of IUU and probability of being apprehended will be difficult to make, because inspections are not random but (partly) based on risk assessments. France (CEDEM): – access to some official documents (e.g. national reports to the EC) – access to Court files (for the identification of the type and level of sanctions).
