Data for Roughhead grenadier (Macrourus berglax), Thorny skate (Amblyraja radiata) and Withe hake (Urophycis tenuis) from Spanish Spring survey are presented. The abundance and biomass were estimated for the period 1997-2010 for Roughhead grenadier and Thorny skate, and 2001-2010 for White hake. The length distribution was obtained and presented in numbers per haul stratified mean catches. The indices of Roughhead grenadier present no trend along the years until 2003, with an increase in years 2004-2006, mainly in 2004. In 2007 the biomass were on the level of 2003 value, with a slight increase since then broken with a new decrease in 2010, reaching again the level of 2007 values. Thorny skate indices starts the series with poor values, increasing constantly up to the historical maximum in 2000, following with a decrease since 2001 until 2003, increased for 2004-2006 and decreased again since 2007. For White hake, there were great catches in 2001, and a sharp decrease since then, broken ...
