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.




The State of Mediterranean and Black Sea Fisheries 2018 was prepared by the staff of the GFCM Secretariat, under the overall direction of Abdellah Srour (Executive Secretary) and the leadership of Miguel Bernal (Fishery Resources Officer), comprising (in alphabetical order): Anna Carlson (Fishery Officer – Socio-economic issues), Paolo Carpentieri (Fishery Resources Monitoring Specialist), Selvaggia Cognetti de Martiis (Fisheries Data Management Specialist), Federico De Rossi (Data Compliance Officer), Roberto Emma (Data Analyst), Nicola Ferri (Fishery Officer – Legal and Institutional matters), Elisabetta Betulla Morello (Fishery Resources Officer), Aurora Nastasi (Fisheries and Environment Specialist), Margherita Sessa (Fishery Liaison Officer) and Ahmed Siliman (Fisheries Compliance Specialist).
