Summary

IDENTIFICATION

Last updated on 29 September 2016

SCIENTIFIC NAME

Engraulis encrasicolus

SPECIES NAME(S)

European anchovy

The stock structure of European anchovy in the Mediterranean has been studied by several authors (e.g. Pla et al., 1996; Zarraonaindia et al., 2012; Giannoulaki et al., 2013; Viñas et al., 2013; Oueslati et al., 2014), is quite complex and considered with “surprisingly high overall heterogeneity” (Oueslati et al., 2014). Thus here we assumed the division of management units presented by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) (GFCM, 2008).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
