MetadataShow full item record
The Spanish fleet has, at least, four different fisheries in NAFO Regulatory Area (NRA) Subarea 3. The Spanish fleet effort in depths more than 700 m. with 130 mm mesh size is mainly directed to Greenland halibut (mostly in Div. 3LM) , the effort with 280 mm mesh size in depth less than 200 meters is directed to skates (Div. 3NO), the effort with 40 mm mesh size in depth between 200-700 meters is directed to shrimp fishery (Div. 3LM) and the effort in depths between 200-700 meters with 130 mm mesh size is mainly directed to redfish (Div. 3O and 3M). Surveys analyzed in this document cover quiet good all area where the Spanish fleet carries out their fisheries. The level and the spatial covertures of the samples taken by scientific observers are quite good for all fisheries in the studied period, except in 2008 where there are not samples in the shrimp fishery. The spatial and the level coverage of Scientific Observers information are reasonably good and we can considerer this ...
