A fish storage location is a delimited area close to the shoreline where fish are stored in seines/seine enclosures until they are ready for delivery. A fish storage location is defined as a location close to the shoreline where topographical and hydrographic all conditions are such that a seine can be placed there, i.e. the fish can be stored in the seine/enclosure until they are ready to be sold. A fish storage location is characterised by the fact that it is shielded effectively from the weather, the current is not excessive and the water is sufficiently deep and well oxygenated and has sufficient salinity.
The dataset is important in many different contexts in connection with planning and administration of coastal areas. It is used when preparing municipal coastal zone plans and zoning plans, and in regional plans as well. It is an important theme for balancing interests when dealing with applications for sea initiatives. E.g. quay facilities, marine pipelines and aquaculture.
