Almost all FishInfo reporting endpoints have been updated. The biggest change is that more information is collected in a vesselprofile, that users are connected to. The endpoints have been simplified, as the profile information no longer need to be passed along.

There are also updates to the fishingfacility/fishing gear endpoints: 

Endpoints that have been replaced by new versions have been marked as deprecated.

The old endpoints have a minor update: contactPersonName and contactPersonPhone are no longer required.

Due to a new data source for ISA and PD diseases these changes have been made today:

To access the BarentsWatch API it is mandatory to register and use a token, as documented here: Application registration and authentication.

Today this policy is enforced, and unauthenticated requests will recieve a 401 HTTP status code. If you get this error, you need to self-register a client, and pass an access token with your requests.

Due to a new data source for ISA and PD diseases, there will be changes in this endpoint:


The "ilaPd" property will be null for all localities from week 45, 2020. The new property "ilaPdCase" will have the information about diseases.

This endpoint has a new data model:

"ilaPdCase": [
	"id": "PD2020-67",
	"localityNo": 20815,
	"disease": "PD",
	"subtype": "SAV3",
	"disproved": false,
	"suspectedDate": "2020-05-05T02:00:00+02:00",
	"confirmedDate": null,
	"emptiedDate": null,
	"closedDate": null,
	"disprovedDate": null,
	"createdDate": null,
	"changedDate": "2020-05-05T02:00:00+02:00"

The change of the API will take effect 7th January 2021. The API documentation will also be updated this date. If you need documentation earlier, please contact us.
