ABSTRACT:

The Workshop on Standardization of Trawl Surveys Protocol in the MedSudMed Project Area was held in Mazara del Vallo from 5 to 9 May 2003. Research institutes of all four MedSudMed Countries (Italy, Malta, Tunisia and Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) were represented as well as the project staff. The objective of the seminar was to provide all available information on the existing procedures to carry out national and international trawl surveys, compare them and agree on future common methodological protocols. The technical contributions regarded four relevant topics: planning of activities at sea and fishing gears, processing of the catches and biological sampling, collecting biological information on target species, and data management and processing. On the basis of these themes three working groups were constituted, who discussed respectively: planning of activities at sea and fishing gear, collecting biological sampling and data management. In short period the participants agreed to maintain most of the current procedures used in collecting data within the national programs and adopt procedures to standardize selected data to be stored in a regional data base to be used for preliminary common analysis.
