Description
Italian annual landings (1953–2012) for the Northern and Central Adriatic Sea originated from official Italian statistics on the fishery, reported by the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) from 1953 to 2004, and by the Institute for Economic Research in Fishery and Aquaculture (IREPA) from 2005 to 2012. more

Until 2001, landings were published in the ISTAT annual bulletins (printed format) while after 2002 they were available in digital format. The method of landings data collection changed in 2005. ISTAT collected monthly landings data (census survey) at Marine Compartment level from Port Authorities using standardised paper templates, while IREPA performed sample surveys applying the Computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) technique following ISTAT guidelines. In the dataset, landings are aggregated at the level of Italian administrative regions (Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Abruzzo and Molise) and do not include discarded, illegal and unreported catches. In the original documents, species were cited with their common names, thus it was necessary to attribute them their scientific name. Common names reported in the original documents changed over time, and they were updated according to the actual official name as defined by the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies in 2008. Overall, information on 120 marketed categories are available in the dataset (15,077 records), but the taxonomic resolution of landings changed over time ranging from a minimum of 31 (1958) to a maximum of 81 categories (1955-1957). Marketed categories may include one or more species. Multispecies categories usually group taxonomically similar species, i.e. species of the same genus or family. The statistics are referred to landings from capture sea- and freshwater-fisheries in the Adriatic Sea landed by Italian boats.
