The scientific data are used for the work of the Commission and are also prepared for dissemination in accordance with the current Rules and Procedures for the Protection, Access to, and Dissemination of Data Compiled by the Commission or “RAP”.

The WCPFC Data catalogue consists of a set of tables summarising the WCFPC scientific data holdings by gear, species and broad ocean area in (i) a summary format and (ii) in a detailed format, which serves to assist potential users of the WCFPC scientific data understand the extent of available data.
