The species is found along the Atlantic coast of France to Senegal, the Mediterranean and Black Seas. The stock structure was studied in the South of Spain (Marie et al. 2016) but the Black Sea was not included. The fishery takes place in the region (GFCM and FAO 2016)(Keskin et al. 2017) and no assessment seems to be performed.
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.
