AdriaMed during years of activities gathered and
compiled a great amount of data on fisheries sector in
the Adriatic Sea. The data were archived in databases,
appositely developed and designed by the Project to
store and manage these data. Most of the databases have
been made available on line and are:
Available Publications (search engine for all the publications produced by AdriaMed Project);
AdriaMed Trawl Surveys Information Systems (ATrIS),
an application created to store organize e
provide basic statistic analysis tools to manage
trawl surveys data collected during the AdriaMed
trawl surveys (since 2001).
This database replicates over 4500 records included in the "ASFA"
Database related to the Adriatic Sea.
AdriaMed Data Management Small Pelagics Application
- ASPA -
An intense data handling programme is needed to
process data suitable for stock assessment (e.g.
catch weighted length frequency, catch-at-age,
weight-at-age, etc.). Data handling means the
possibility to assemble data quickly from
various combinations of ports (e.g. northern
ports), dates, species, catches, sub-samples,
length frequencies, fishing fleets, etc. To
facilitate this task at the beginning of the
1990s, a software package named NADA (stands for
Nice Acquisition of Data) was developed at
IRPEM-CNR Ancona by Nando Cingolani, using
DBIII+ language. NADA was a user-friendly
programme, specific for the data collection
programme on small pelagic fish in the Adriatic
A new database using MYSQL (RDBMS), was designed
to receive the data stored in NADA to obtain a
product with high performance in terms of:
security, access to the data, sharing
information. This first phase is linked to the
attainment of 2 targets:
Database of sardines and anchovies landed in the
- A tool for the VPA calculation.
Legislation This review is based on the
AdriaMed Technical Document N°14
“General outline of marine capture fisheries
legislation and regulations in the Adriatic Sea
and Fishery Markets (this database contains
information on fishing ports and related fish markets
in the Adriatic Sea);
AdriaMed ADRIATIC CARTOGRAPHY
In addition the Project produced a CD-ROM
containing the digitalized cartography of the
Adriatic Sea prepared with the collaboration of
the Hrvatski Hidrografski Institut (HHI) and the
Istituto Idrografico della Marina Italiana (IIM).
The digital cartography refers to the following
projection: GCS (Geographic Coordinate System
Latitude and Longitude in decimal degrees) WGS84
(World Geodetic 1984 Spheroid). The EPSG (European
Petroleum Survey Group) code is 4326.
Reference scale 1:250.000.
