Important Notes: Important Notes:

  • DATA SPECIFICATION: data on enterprises that carry out fish processing as a main activity will be asked as totals and under four size categories (i.e. firms with ≤10, 11-49, 50-249 and ≥250 employees), as in the 2013 data call (more information in Requirements and Templates). However, differently from last year, the delivery of all data disaggregated by size categories is mandatory for those MS which have to collect them according to their National Programs.
    • Please be aware that uploading excel sheets with no values will overwrite existing data for the specified year already present in the database (data previously uploaded).
    • Member States are requested to make a clear distinction between zero values and missing information (i.e. if a value is missing the corresponding cell has to be left blank).
    • The variable "Extraordinary costs, net" has to be calculated as following:
"Extraordinary charges" - "Extraordinary income" (YES)
and not as:
"Extraordinary income" -"Extraordinary charges" (NO)
