Abstract IMARES and LEI are both contracted on occasion to perform VMS-analyses to produce maps of fishing activity or economic value of fisheries in particular area(s) in the North Sea. Until present, IMARES and LEI use their own methodology which is inspired mostly on their own unique data availabilities which may lead to different results. This in turn may lead to questioning of these methodologies and results, especially in relation to estimations of economic value. The aim of the current study is to compare both methodologies by IMARES and LEI en decide upon a common (unique) methodology for producing fishing activity and value maps and estimating economic value of specific areas. The current report describes the jointly agreed methodology between scientists from IMARES and LEI, using input from the fishing industry. This methodology can be readily applied in future projects aimed at describing the value of particular areas in the North Sea in terms of fishing activity. A secondary aim - included on request of the Dutch Fish Product Board (PVIS) - is to address the question of how IMARES and/or LEI can make use of knowledge of the fishing industry in VMS mapping projects.
