The new_fsu database contains commercial catch-effort data collected and managed by the Fisheries Statistics Unit (FSU) prior to the establishment of the QMS. The FSU was disbanded in November 1988, therefore the 1988 and 1989 datasets are generally incomplete. Statistics back to 1972 were collected for some fisheries, which are included in this database. Fisheries statistics collected prior to 1983 are referred to as ‘pre-FSU’ in the database documentation.
