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.
