reportposted on 2022-01-21, 11:40 authored by ICESICES
From the stock definition: The European anchovy, Engraulis encrasicolus, is a small pelagic coastal marine fish, forming large schools, largely spread from the North Sea to SE Africa, including the entire Mediterranean basin. This species represents an important fishery and economic activity for the countries bordering the Iberian Peninsula and Mediterranean Sea (Uriarte et al., 1996; Lleonart and Maynou, 2002). Due to its market value, production, and wide distribution in several E Atlantic and Mediterranean countries, anchovy is a major shared resource in the region.
