SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Trachurus trachurus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Atlantic horse mackerel

The Saharo -Mauritanian stock is one of the four stocks of horse mackerel in the Northeast Atlantic - Western, Southern, North Sea - that have been distinguished based on genetic, parasite, morphometric, otolith and life history trait analyses (Abaunza et al. 2008); the boundaries of their distribution areas have not yet been conclusively determined (ICES, 2009b). More information needs to be gathered to determine the south boundaries and relation with the western stock, but a Saharo-Mauritanian stock is distinguished by (Abaunza et al. 2008) and following (Maxim 1995), considering its high production parameters (growth and batch fecundity). The stock is assessed together with other species such as Cunene horse mackerel (Trachurus trecae), false scad (Caranx rhonchus) and blue jack mackerel (Trachurus picturatus) (FAO 2018)
