Freshwater Production

This facility provides free access to GIS data on European freshwater fish production. View the freshwater fish production data on an interactive map of Europe and search freshwater fish production sites and locations. Alternatively, download Esri compatible GIS files (Geodatabase or Shapefile). Datasets are also available via OGC compliant web feature service (WFS) or web map services (WMS). The metadata featured here can be downloaded as XML.

EMODnet Human Activities: Freshwater farming sites


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The dataset provides information about the location of freshwater finfish farms in the EU and partner countries where data are available. There is an obligation for EU MS to inventory all authorized aquaculture sites under the Council Directive 2006/88/EC on animal health requirements. Despite this obligation, the availability of data varies among MS from no data available at all to a complete regularly updated dataset (e.g.in Scotland). As far as partner countries are concerned, data have been collected in Norway only at this stage, where detailed data are provided online. Data provided here cover Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK. Data collection is still undergoing in other EU MS and neighbouring countries. In some countries, the list of authorized establishments clearly indicates the status (e.g. in Ireland: active, inactive, expired, etc..) or provides relevant information (e.g. in the UK- Scotland: production in the last 3 years : Y/N), but in most MS the status is only partially fulfilled or not provided. In Norway, only active farms have been included at this stage. Available information on species has been harmonised. Filters are available for the following main species: Carp, Catfish, “Other freshwater pond fish” (zander, pike, perch, tench, etc. – mostly cyprinidae), Trout, Salmon (smolt and juveniles), Eel,  Sturgeon, Tilapia, Ornamental Fish and Other. There is no information on species in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovenia (information is available in Czech Republic but not in a usable format at this stage). The field Detailed species provides an English translation of the species descriptions from the sources (before harmonisation). Information on Production Stage (Grow out, Hatchery, Nursery, Brood stock, Research, Other) and Farm type (Closed systems, Ponds, Tanks-Raceways, Quarantine facility, Research facility, Other) is at least partially available for most countries. Point information indicates if the data points correspond to the data provided by the Source ("Original") or if they have been estimated by the Emodnet team when Polygons were provided ("Polygon centroid"). Polygons were provided in Ireland only.

Lineage
Lineage statement
                    The geodatabase for fish farming sites in the EU relies on the data collected by MS under the framework of Council Directive 2006/88/EC for animal health status ( https://ec.europa.eu/food/animals/live_animals/aquaculture_en).The harmonisation work involved the following steps:- (1) Identify species when available, translate into English and harmonise into standard naming. Details provided in the datasets vary from detailed scientific names to national common names. The data provided here uses the following common names (Carp, Catfish,  Trout, Salmon, Eel,  Sturgeon, Tilapia) as well as larger categories (Other freshwater pond fish, Ornamental Fish and Other). (2) Identify translate and harmonise, production stages (brood stock, hatchery, nursery, grow out, put an take fisheries, research, other) and farm types (ponds, closed systems, tanks-raceways, research facility, quarantine facility, other) (3) Data cleaning: duplicates, missing or erroneous geographic coordinates, etc. ; (4) Convert all data sets into the same reference system (WGS 84).  Data available represent about 44% of the EU freshwater aquaculture production + Norway. Most important producing countries where data are missing are France, Italy, Germany, Hungary and Romania.
