Fish stock  Fishery  Semantic data integration  Data publication 

The collation of information for the monitoring of fish stocks and fisheries is a difficult and time-consuming task, as the information is scattered across different databases and is modelled using different formats and semantics. Our purpose is to offer a unified view of the existing stocks and fisheries information harvested from three different database sources (FIRMS, RAM and FishSource), by relying on innovative data integration and manipulation facilities. In this paper, we describe the activities carried out to realize the Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF) which aims at offering an integrated and enriched view on data about fish stocks and fisheries from the database sources. More specifically we describe the model, the workflow and the software components for producing GRSF records and make them easily available to the users.
