Profile updated on 22 October 2016
Common European bittersweet, Dog cockle
Common European bittersweet is distributed from Norway to the Mediterranean Sea and west Africa (Carter, 2008) and apparently absent from the southern North Sea (Oliver et al., 2010). The map below regards the distribution in French waters.
Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
