This dashboard shows the EU and regional deployment of fishing effort (KWdays-at-sea) of categories of fishing techniques/gears in 2011, and also its change (%) over time between 2004-2011. These categories differ in their impact on the seafloor, with mobile gears with high (Beam trawl & Dredge), low (Bottom trawl & Seine) and no impact (Pelagic trawl) together with two types of passive gear of which the longlines have less impact than the Gillnets, pots & traps.
