Bringing together data and indicators submitted by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) contracting parties and cooperating non-contracting parties on stock status, national catches, fleet and socio-economic aspects, as well as information obtained from other sources, SoMFi 2018 aims to provide objective, reliable and up-to-date information to a wide audience and support decision-making in fisheries. It provides the most detailed assessment yet of the state of fishery resources in the region. It shows current status of stocks, including those most at risk from overfishing, and looks at related issues like discards and incidental catches of vulnerable species.

Foreword

The Mediterranean and the Black Sea represent a unique convergence of complex ecological, economic and social features. For centuries, this region has offered coastal communities a bounty of marine living resources, which has propelled the development of the fishing industry and has helped forge the identity of many of the civilizations that constitute the cultural and social fabric of the area.
