The main objective of the PELMED project, on which this dataset is based on, is the assessment of small pelagic populations in the Spanish Mediterranean. more

On the one hand the resources will be directly evaluated and the annual recruitment quantified through acoustic measurements. On the other hand the information derived from the fishery activities will be assessed and an analytical evaluation of the main species (sardine and anchovy) will be performed. These data are used to advise the Administration on fisheries management issues and to attend the commitments made in the working groups of the GFCM.
