These are the electronic data outputs for the ICES technical service (February 2022) further data outputs of its 2021 advice on the deep-sea access regulation (ref. (EU)2016/2336) as coordinates for the EU waters only in the Northeast Atlantic (i.e. areas between 400 and 800 m in the EEZs of France, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland). The data outputs include 1) an interactive map showing the updated VME scenarios and options and the existing deep-sea fishing areas, 2) the coordinates of the updated scenario and options as PDF and CSV as well as XLSX and SHP files and 3) the coordinates of three fishing footprints, the combined static and mobile bottom-contacting gear (MBCG) footprint, the static gear only footprint, and the MBCG only footprint, as PDF and CSV as well as XLSX and SHP files. This technical service is based on ICES (2021) advice on the list of areas where VMEs are known to occur or are likely to occur and on the existing deep-sea fishing areas (ref. (EU)2016/2336) and the references within. This technical service as a whole includes both a PDF and electronic data outputs.
