CatchMapper provides heat maps and spatial estimates of catch and effort anywhere in the EEZ for all types of commercial fishing except eel fishing. This report describes the fishing represented in CatchMapper from October 2007 to September 2016 as well as the procedures for building polygons for fishing events, apportioning trip landings to each event polygon, and the range of ways the values of each polygon can be classified, pooled, and cut into spatial catch estimates and maps.
