The Spanish fleet that operates in NAFO Regulatory Area has captured white hake in a regular way during the last
years. Before 2002, the level of catches of this species has not been very high (300 tons per year) and these catches
were part of the by-catch of the different fisheries that Spanish fleet carries out in NAFO Area (Greenland halibut,
skates, redfish). Catches have been increased substantially in the last two years, being captured in the year 2003
more than 1 800 tons.
The Spanish fishery directed to white hake began in the year 2002 and it is developed mainly in the Div. 3O among
the depths 200-500 meters. The biggest catches are carried out during the third quarter, and more than 80% of the
catches, in abundance and biomass, are mature.
