This working document presents the results on four of the most significant deep fish species of the last Porcupine Spanish survey carried in 2014, as well as it updates previous documents presented with the information on the fourteen years (2001-2014) of the Spanish bottom trawl survey on the Porcupine Bank. The document presents total abundances in weight, length frequencies and geographical distributions for Argentinaspp. (mostly A. silus, results on proportions by Argentine species distribution in last surveys are provided), Bluemouth (Helicolenus dactylopterus), Greater fork-beard (Phycis blennoides) and Spanish ling (Molva macrophthalma). Argentinaspp. and Spanish ling presented a decrease in their abundances, whereas Bluemouth remained stable and Greater forkbeard increased slightly. In terms of recruitment 2014 showed larger values than previous years for A. sphyraena, Helicolenus dactylopterusand Molva macrophtalmabut weaker for Phycis blennoides, and A ...
