The map shows the location and type of fixed gear (i.e. lines, nets and traps) with reference to time of setting. The map layer shows fishing facility positions reported to the Coast Guard Central (KVS) according to "Utøvelsesforskriften" e.g. Reporting when fishing with fixed gear and floating line. Vessels engaged in fishing with fixed gear and floating line north of 62 ° N outside the baselines, vessels engaged in net fishing for Greenland halibut north of 62 ° N and vessels engaged in net fishing for anglerfish shall report to the Coast Guard Central (tel. 07611) about: a) setting of the gear, and b) haul of gear at the end of fishing. The map shows the location and type of fixed gear with reference to the vessel and time of setting.
