Spanish Oceanogrnphic Institute (IEO) and Portuguese Research Inistitute (IPIMAR, ex-INIP) using their research vessels "Comide de Saavedra" and "Noruega" have conducted groundfish surveys in Spanish and Portuguese waters. The results of these surveys have been reported to the relevant ICES Working Groups, communicated to ICES Annual Conferences and/or published in journals of bioiogy and flsheries.

This communication intends to give information about the past, the present and the future of these surveys, concerning objectives, methodology and publications. Critical aspects and solutions to improve some aspects are presented.
