(1) An active vessel is a fishing vessel that is registered (Register of Shipping and Seamen) and licenced to fish.

(2) Year on year tonnage comparisons should be made with caution, since these figures take no account of the phased replacement of GRT with GT during the period 1996-2003. See explanation in Annex 1 for further details.

(3) The length group has been changed to reflect better the legislative requirements affecting fishing vessels - see commentary on page 24.
