These data are taken from Khan et al. (2006) and Sumaila et al. (2006), who identified for each maritime country three categories and twelve fisheries subsidy types, with subsidy amounts provided for year 2000 in real (inflation adjusted) US$. References for both the reported subsidy amounts and the estimates (in brackets) are provided. The subsidy intensity in the form of total subsidy as a percentage of landed value is also given.
