Special Order - may be out of print
This edition provides a comprehensive overview of the status of fisheries in the region, covering their main features and trends, in order to better inform their management and examine current and future challenges. The report aims to provide useful analysis and direction for decision-making and action. The volume is divided into two sections: a first part on the status and trends of different aspects of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, including fleet, catches, socio-economic variables and bycatch, and a second part that focuses on the management of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, including an overview of small-scale fisheries. The report draws on the most up-to-date data available submitted by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean contracting and cooperating non-contracting parties, including stock status, national catches, fleet and socio-economic information up to 2018.
