The ultimate objective of SPELMED (SC NR. 02 - TENDER EASME/EMFF/2016/32) was the evaluation of the population status of Sardina pilchardus (European sardine) and Engraulis encrasicolus (European anchovy) in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea, specifically in GSA06 and GSA07, based on the review and generation of key biological and ecological information to support robust management options in the area.
In this document we provide a detailed description on the activities and achievements of the project. The project was divided in three main tasks: Task 1 - Revision of biological information for both stocks, Task 2 - Revision of the ecological and fisheries information, and Task 3 - Proposal and assessment of fisheries management measures.
