Lineage The full grid covers an area from 47 to 57 latitude South and 64 to 52 longitude West. The squares are 15 min of lat (0.25), by 30 min longitude (0.50). They are labelled progressively using alphabetical letters, from AA to AZ going to west to east, WW to YM from North to South. There are not "I" and "O" as they can be mistaken as 1 and 0. Each grid square is associated to a fishing licence. The file is provided with the latest fisheries licences (fishing allowed or fishing restricted). Individual shape files for the different fisheries licences are available on request to the data owner.
