Generated from a query of vessels identifying themselves as fishing in the
shiptype_text field in the vessel identity messages in the type 5 and type
24 AIS messages. Details of the query can be found in Benthos #397. In the next
round we will filter out some additional "unknown" vessel types and probably
drop the threshold to include some vessels that almost always identify
themselves as fishing.
Based on public fishing registry records.
Produced by combining likely and known fishing lists and then removing sets of known non-fishing vessels (fish carriers, fishspotting helicopters, research vessels) along with short mmsi's (less than 5 digits) and mmsi's that will likely have a large number of spoofing vessels (111111111). See Benthos #397.
