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Endpoints that have been replaced by new versions have been marked as deprecated.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