Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: 90% of the value of trawl catches is concentrated in 50% of EU fishing grounds

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Fishing with mobile bottom contact gear in European waters is spatially limited to “basic fishing grounds” that concentrate 90% of the catch value and cover 50% of European marine areas (Baltic Sea, the Great North Sea, the Celtic Sea and the Bay of Biscay and the Iberian coastal areas), taking into account data from the period 2017-2022. However, the spatial location of these fishing grounds – starting from a grid cell definition of 0.05º latitude × 0.05º longitude, from 25 km2 to 36ºN to less than 13 km2 to 66. ºN–, varies from year to year, has concluded the ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) in a new advisory carried out on behalf of the European Commission.
