Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Jan 16, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Australian national commercial fisheries presence data summarized by half-degree square, year (2000-2002) and species name. Cells with less than 5 boats represented are excluded, as are commercial "taxa" which represent multiple or otherwise unidentified species. The dataset contains 60,445 records representing 390 separate species. The data were assembled by the former Bureau of Rural Sciences (BRS) which is now a part of the Australian Department of Agriculture.

Additional summary information including catch weights and gross value product per species per square per year is available (part of the former "Atlas of Australian Marine Fishing and Coastal Communities"), please contact the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources for access at http://www.agriculture.gov.au/general-inquiries
