SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Scophthalmus maximus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Turbot, Pregado

Wild turbot populations inhabit along all European coasts from the Arctic Circle to North West Africa (Morocco) (Froese and Pauly 2019). Some studies on the stock structure have been conducted on the NE Atlantic region and in the Mediterranean (e.g. (Nielsen et al. 2004)(Turan et al. 2014)), lacking the inclusion of the African region. Fishsource profiles are available for turbot in the North Sea and Portugal.

The Fishery Committee for the Eastern Central Atlantic (CECAF) conducts assessments on some fisheries resources in FAO Area 34 but turbot is not yet considered (FAO 2018). Therefore, and in lack of an assessment known to be conducted, a management unit is considered within Moroccan waters.

Fisheries

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.
