CAtch rate Standardisation of fin-fishes targeted by the GAlician (NW Spain) Small-Scale fishery - CASGASS

  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Lead Scientist: Alexandre Alonso Fernández, Fisheries Ecology Group, Department of Marine Ecology and Resources, Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Marinas (IIM-CSIC), Spain​​​​​​​​​​​​
  • ​Co-scientist: Rafael Bañón, Dirección General de Desarrollo Pesquero, UTPB, Xunta de Galicia, Regional Goverment of Galicia, Spain​

Objectives:

​​The principal aim of this study is to standardize catch and effort data obtained from observers on commercial fishing vessels for a number of finfish species targeted by the small-scale fishing fleet off the Galician coast (ICES areas IXa and VIIIc). This would allow the development of indices of abundance to be used as inputs for stock assessments.​

The proposal builds on various pillars of the current strategic plan. It specifically seeks an understanding of the dynamics and structure of key biotic components from an integrated perspective (Goals 1 and 2). It also fosters the use of sound statistical models to analyz​​​e new data sets (Goals 4), and provides credible advice for management needs (Goal 3).​​
