I recently gathered fish harvest data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administarion (NOAA), which I downloaded from Infochimps. The data is fish harvest by weight and value, by species for 21 years, from 1985 to 2005. Here is a link to a google document of the data I used below: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Aq6aW8n11tS_dFRySXQzYkppLXFaU2F5aC04d19ZS0E&hl=en

fish <- read.csv("fishharvest.csv") # read data

fish2 <- data.frame(fish2,year) # replace year with actual values

fishdata <- data.frame(subset(fish2,fish2$var == "quantity_1000lbs",-4),value_1000dollars=subset(fish2,fish2$var == "value_1000dollars",-4)[,4])
names(fishdata)[4] <- "quantity_1000lbs"
fishharvest <- gvisMotionChart(fishdata, idvar="species", timevar="year")
plot(fishharvest)
