Assignment of Unique Identifiers for standardized identifications of stocks and fisheries Standard coding system for: - Stocks <Species> + <Assessment Area(s)> - Fisheries <Species> + <Fishing Area(s)> + <Management Entity(ies)> +Jurisdiction area(s)> + <Geartype> + <Flag State> Example of semantic identifier, and of its full label asfis:COD + fao:21.3.M + grsf-org:INT:NAFO + rfb_comp:NAFO + isscfg:OTB + iso3:LTU Gadus morhua - Atlantic, Northwest/21.3.M - Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) - NAFO area of competence - Bottom otter trawls - Lithuania Universally Unique Identifier - to respond to whatever global IT standard Example http://data.d4science.org/uri-resolver/catalogue/GRSF/product/f21113e9-0794-37aa-b7fe- bf49101361f3 Semantic Identifier – product labelling, records identification & validation, etc.
