 DC web site


Since 2000, an EU framework for the collection and management of fisheries data is in place. This framework was reformed last in 2008 resulting in the Data Collection Framework (DCF). Under this framework the Member States (MS) collect, manage and make available a wide range of fisheries data needed for scientific advice.

The data is collected on the basis of National Programmes in which the MS indicate which data is collected, the resources they allocate for the collection and how data is collected. MS must report annually on the implementation of their National Programmes and the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) evaluates these Annual Reports.

Part of the data collected by the MS is uploaded in databases managed by the JRC in response to data calls issued by DG MARE. This data is analysed by experts of the STECF and forms the basis for scientific opinions and recommendations formulated in STECF reports. The resulting scientific advice is used to inform the CFP decision making process.

JRC is assembling the data, storing it in databases, analysing its quality and coverage and making it available to the STECF working groups. Once the STECF reports are finalised the data is disseminated in aggregated form for a target audience of experts for further use in scientific analyses and policy.

In this website you will find the necessary information and data related to the above described process including:

  • latest news in relation to data calls, deadlines, variable definitions, disaggregation levels and uploading procedures;
  • National Programs and Annual Report prepared by the MS;
  • access to the uploading facilities and data dissemination platforms for the experts and the general public;
  • coverage reports on the data provided by the MS in response of the data calls managed by JRC;
  • DCF technical documents, guidelines and legislation.
