Abstract: 

Fishery data visualization plays a vital role for companies in countries with developed fishery infrastructure. It is important to identify trends, anomalies, year-by-year comparison (drill-down) of fishing catches and their monetary value. Showing correlation between these two parameters for each Canadian province and fish species is a prominent part of the work. Our focus is to provide more user-friendly ways to show all necessary data for non-domain expert users in a web browser. We introduce a novel tool called FishPlots that can help users see/identify fish amounts in specific regions and help fishery managers add or remove restrictions on fish quotas. It helps analysts answer questions about the number of caught species or possible threats to biological diversity. Having the visualization tool in a web browser is convenient for users to allow them to perform their analyses more quickly and more accurately, plus they do not have to install software on their computers that may not be compatible with their systems. The proposed web interface will be a highly accessible multi-platform tool that will help users interested in the fishery domain analyze table data quickly and effectively.
