We analyse the distribution of bottom contact trawling between 89/90 and 12/13 using TCEPR data. Eleven target species and an aggregate of all tier 1 and 2 species are analysed. Statistics for the footprint and effort per 5 x 5km cell in relation to depth zones, fishable area, habitat and preferred habitat of each species are provided. The footprint for all tier 1 and 2 species is estimated at 347 290km2 (~ 8% of the EEZ & TS), the cumulative area of tows is 175 204km2 (~ 24% of EEZ& TS cells).
