The Pink Shrimp catch and effort grid dataset has been assembled directly from the Shellfish Data Units harvest log database located at the Pacific Biological Station (PBS). The dataset has been modified to meet the sensitive nature of the data as per the Access to Information Act20(1)(b,c); which specifies that Fisheries and Oceans Canada will not disclose to a third party confidential information that may prejudice the competitive position of the fisher, in which fishing location has been identified as one of the entities to be protected. There was a 10km x 10km grid used in the desensitization process. As well information was limited to total Effort (kilometre) and total Catch (lbs). The dataset is comprised of an aggregate of Pink Shrimp only and specifically targets the 1997-2004 fishing seasons (April-March).
